FIX4 - calibre ebook-view error in macos high sierra

I like to open new ebooks directly with calibre's ebook-viewer.app (found inside the calibre.app) so they are not copied and added to the calibre library, but since macos High Sierra I get the error: "ebook-viewer cannot be opened because of a problem".
My workaround is to run the ebook-viewer code (found inside the ebook-viewer.app) from the command line with the currently selected ebook filelpath as an argument. I created an ActionScript App that you can make the default "open" application for any particular ebook type (.epub in my case). It only opens one book at a time. Here's the ActionScript:

Thanks for sharing

BTW I moved your thread out of the Recipes subforum, because that sub-forum is about news downloads 'scripts'. And I tweaked this threads title.

Oh,and welcome to Mobileread

I am very unexperienced with Macs, so I may be completely off here, but I am able to open ebooks using High Sierra using a right-click "open with ebook-viewer". I am not a MacBook power user by any means, just use it for content consumption and programming javascript but I haven't encountered this error. I wonder what is being done differently.
