Internal Error Detected - MacOS

Hi everyone,

 

I have recently been using Pulse Secure to access my work place network, however since switching laptops an internal error messages shows up when I try to launch the PulseApplicationLauncher.app to initiate the download and installation of the Pulse Secure.app.

 

I have tried reinstalling the launcher, however the problem persists. Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks!

 

PS I have updated to BigSur, however this also made no difference to the issue.

 

The error message reads: 

 

internal error detected. Please try again. If issue persists, please contact your administrator.

Re: Internal Error Detected - MacOS

@Noggy33 Code check is failing, "Code signature check on update failed: Error Domain=NSOSStatusErrorDomain Code=-67050 "The operation couldn’t be completed."

 

Are you trying to launch the Pulse Client from the web session? do you have Pulse Client installed in your machine?

Re: Internal Error Detected - MacOS

r@yElr3y in my case I try to launch off a web session (intranet) at my institution. It generally works on Macs, but not on my one. 

 

I received a Pulse Secure installation file from my IT department, so I have semi fixed the problem and I can connect manually. But it would still be nice to launch from a web session. Do you have a fix for the launcher on this front?

 

Many thanks!

I have installed Pulse Client.
And I am trying to launch the Pulse Client from the web session.
I get below message on browser.

"Pulse Secure Setup Client

"Pulse Secure Application Launcher

Please retry. If the issue persists, contact your administrator."
