Some time ago, I read an article about why an "IKEA" would never happen in Denmark. Not that Swedes are anything special, or that Danes are't smart enough. But the argument is that to be able to create an IKEA, one would have to decide that things are only made to be "almost good enough", meaning that one know that the product is not perfect, it will not last longer than it was designed to last, and so fort. And any one in Denmark who would start a company would would do so to produce products which where the best of the best (I am not fully in agrement with that one). But lately that made me think about the stage of software quality, we know that it is impossible to remove all issues in software, the 90/10 rule still plays a role in our daily life. But we have gotten used to software which, we actually pay for, doesn't work, or it crashes, or causes data loss.

Another option is to install " The Unarchiver " from the AppStore, which will expand the file without any problems.
The other day I changed the SSD in one of my Macbooks (retina ...), and restored it from a TimeMachine backup. Everything was working, except for Eizo Colornavigator 7, which gave me an error: "Data Access Error - Failed to write data. The data my be corrupted. Uninstall ColorNavigator 7 once and reinstall it" If for the life of it couldn't figure out what was going on, even using AppCleaner (which normally does a proper cleanup) did not fix it. I removed everything else I could find which had to do with Eizo, and still problem was there. I then contacted Eizo Support, which told me to reinstall ... dooo.....
