Let´s start with a few questions:
- Where did you put the extracted .app?
- What Mac OS X version are you using?
- Do you get the same result with the other distribution? Download Portable Version
- Are you comfortable using the Terminal? If you are, go to the directory containing the hermeneutix.jar (via cd command – might be easier for you with the portable distribution), use the java -jar hermeneutix.jar command and post the resulting error message.

Just double-click on the hermeneutix.jar in your Finder and please tell me, if there is a similar error message.
I guess it is the Mac OS X Gatekeeper, that suppresses the usage of the current HermeneutiX.app, since I did not sign it digitally to support this anti-malware feature in the new Mac OS X.
Thank you for pointing that out to me!.

- don´t try HermeneutiX till I managed to sign the .app-Bundle,
- use the portable distribution by opening the hermeneutix.jar directly (if this works with the activated Gatekeeper - I´m unsure) or
- deactivate your Gatekeeper, try to start HermeneutiX.app again and reactivate the Gatekeeper (It claims to remember previously opened apps and shouldn´t bother you again.)
I will look into it and try to sign future releases and maybe publish it in the Mac AppStore as well.
I will post it here, if I make any progress.
