Permission denied error on launch


I just installed the Vectorworks evaluation and when I launch it, it terminates immediately. Checking the log I found this error:

8/11/09 9:28:32 PM com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[115] ([0x0-0xe00e0].net.nemetschek.vectorworks[19715]) posix_spawn("/Applications/Vectorworks 2009 Eval/Vectorworks 2009.app/Contents/MacOS/Vectorworks", ...): Permission denied

I tried running the Update to Vectorworks 2009sp4 but it wants a serial number which I don't have with the evaluation version.

I'm running on Mac OSX.

Any ideas?

Did you install as Administrator?

Try to reassign ownership privileges:

If not ... then as Admin ... select application > get info >Permissions >User ( 501),

Group = admin (80)
