Can you help?
Hello there! That file is associated with Rapport software which causes incompatibility issues with Safari. Please follow these instructions and post back if you have any issues. Once it resolves your issue please rate my answer :)

Unisntall Rapport >

If you wish to uninstall but the .dmg file does not contain an uninstall file, please follow these steps to uninstall Rapport:

Quit Firefox and Safari (Menu -> Firefox/Safari -> Quit Firefox/Safari)

Open Mac Terminal (Finder -> Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal)

Type sudo ./ and click enter (please notice the space after "sudo")

Enter your password XXXXX hit enter. (You will not see the password XXXXX it is being typed). If an error appears that reads "No such process", ignore it.

Restart your computer.

Then restart your Mac and try Safari.

It did not work

What part of the instructions didnt work?

I typed in your instructions exactly and then restarted the computer, Safari came up for a second and then the same message appeared

Alright below is a link that has pictures with my instructions this from the manufacturer of that software so more then likely a step was done incorrectly. Also you can check the folder you usually download things to ( downloads folder or documents folder) and check to see if there is a file called rapport ( also you can use finder to search for the file)

The instructions were the same as yours, it did not work

Yes i had said it would be the same just with pictures. Did you check for the file called rapport?

In my downloads folder there is a file called Rapport.dmg but no uninstal file

great double click the rapport.dmg file and a window should open up. Inside that window will be the uninstall file. Double click the uninstall let it remove everything then restart.
