Anki 2.1.50 qt5 won't open

After updating to Anki 2.1.50 qt5 the app won’t open anymore. I’m on MacOS 10.13.6 so normally there shouldn’t be any compatibility issues.

I tried opening Anki via the terminal, here is the error code:

Anki starting…
Initial setup…
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
File “aqt”, line 39, in
File “anki.lang”, line 12, in
File “anki._backend”, line 39, in
ImportError: dlopen(/Applications/, 2): no suitable image found. Did find:
/Applications/ cannot load ‘’ (load command 0x80000034 is unknown)
/Applications/ cannot load ‘’ (load command 0x80000034 is unknown)

Thank you in advance for your help!

When 2.1.51rc2 becomes available, please let me know if it fixes the issue for you.

All right, thank you for your efforts!

I’ll try to open anki via CMD too. My qt5 doesnt open here. I’ll share in beta 51.

Hey Damien,

I just installed 2.1.51rc2 and it’s working now :slight_smile:

Thanks again for your amazing work!
