Quik V recovered using Time Machine and runs without any problem

Re: Quik-MacInstaller- - Quik will not run

I was having the same problem. I was just upgrading from the gopro app (the old one) and it kept crashing. I installed the older version of Quik and it runs good now. Still haven't tried the newest one again

There doesn't seem to be much input for the GoPro support team here - maybe they are all on holiday?


Waiting - with many others I suspect - for the Karma Grip to be re-released.

Quick v2.1 installed on my 2011 MacBook Air and it runs OK.


Reinstalled on my 2010 iMac and still won't run.  It starts to run, showing in the dock as a bouncing icon, then that diasappears and I get the 'Quik quit unexpectedly' window.


v2.0.1 runs without any issues.

@ruyton - The best way to reach a GoPro Support team member is to contact us directly at The GoPro Support Hub is designed to be a customer to customer support channel. Employees help out where we can, but we are not able to address every post that is made on these boards.

My misunderstanding then Jeff - GoPro website and GoPro Support Hub - assumed this was the 'official' support.


I'll contact GoPro direct as you suggest.

Re: Quik-MacInstaller- - Quik will not run

I've had a reply form GoPro support via email and they are helping to sort out my problem.


Thier first advice was to create a new Admin account on my iMac and to try running Quik v2.1.0 again - and yes, it did run, so it must be something to do with my main account.
