Citra Setup Will not Open

I am a Mac user with a computer that is definitely capable of running the emulator but when I try to download Citra for Mac, I click on the download, and that works. Then when I try to click on “citra-setup-mac” after it being extracted, it instantly closes and my computer tells me that it closed unexpectedly. It will not open no matter how many times I try. I am able to download some versions of Citra that are much older but it does not work with the game I am trying to play, Super Mystery Dungeon. If anyone knows why this isn’t working it would be much appreciated!

What version of mac are you using specifically (include os version e.g: 10.12.1)?
what mac build? (e.g: macbook pro mid 2012 )

could you open your installer through the terminal and check for any additional crash info?

you can always use manual download instead of an installer:
