I am having the same problem on my mac.
It will not launch.
Even if I select the control button and select open.
Nothing happens, no brief launch, just nothing.
I have version 5
Interestingly under info it says it was last opened today but its not.
Also tried to download another copy and its no longer on app store.

I am having the same issue.
I went to http://btu.bose.com/ and they force me to update my existing to BoseUpdater_184.108.40.20654 . After I download it to replace my old app, the app refused to open. I have double click on it, but it does not open. I have tried to delete and download again a few times, and yet it still won't open. There are no error message or anything.
Now I am stuck because my bose soundlink mini has flashing red light on the battery icon , and I need to access to the bose updater.
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Bose Community Forums.
I am sorry that this is not working for you. Please can you try running this from a different browser and let me know how you get on.
Should you still have issues after this, please can you confirm:
I look forward to hearing back from you.

Its blatantly obvious why Bose doesn't want the updater to work, so customers pay for repairs, I've had problems with my iPod sound dock, and sound like mini. I won't be buying Bose again, just like Apple products, over priced and overrated, your days are numbered. JBL for me in future !!!

I have to update the software for my soundlink mini (battery ran empty and now it won’t charge anymore...) however the software update app doesn’t launch on my mac. I have read all sorts of threads where Bose support team members refer people to the software download page - this doesn’t help! I have downloaded the right app and if I click “launch” it still won’t open. It’s very frustrating having to deal with these software issues as it is, but please make the updates better accessible for your costumers! Also, any why the app wont launch? Thank you!
