Application not responding

I have attempted to download Anki onto my Mac computer (macOS Catalina version 10.15.6) but have been unsuccessful with the standard and alternate versions available. After the download I simply drag the Anki app into my applications and then from there I attempt to open the program. The Anki symbol then appears on my dock and bounces for about 1-2 minutes before ultimately giving me the “Application not responding” notification. Any help would be much appreciated.

Do you use an antivirus program on your machine?

Please try renaming your Anki data folder, so Anki creates a fresh one. Does that resolve the issue?
