That last might relevant.  According to [1]:

Error -10827 is a Launch Services error meaning: "kLSNoExecutableErr - the 
executable is missing or has an unusable format".

But unfortunately I don't know what that might mean.  Or rather, it might mean 
anything.

Of interest might be "Console Messages" from Console.app.  I'm not entirely 
sure, but it appears they aren't associated with any log file.  So one thing 
you could try is to open Console.app, select "Console Messages" (or maybe "All 
Messages"), "Clear Display", and then launch Sage.app and see what appears.

Thanks,
Ivan
