WS 3.2 has permissions problems for other users. 'Permissions denied' error on open. Won't open pcaps 'permissions denied' although all 3 users are admin.

  1. 2015 MBP 10.14.6 all updates
  2. have not had this with previous WS versions
  3. haven't been thinking about the chmod and path scripts in a while - but
  4. WS is in $PATH for all, get info for WS app shows all users have permission, in theory
  5. re-install / reboot / zap PRAM == same result

error text includes:

Dtd Preparser in file …
Lua: Error during loading: …
Could not open global filter file
'Permission denied' for all
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


If you run the command

ls -l /Applications/

in Terminal, what does it print?
