I guess the first error box tries to signal some kind of error, and after pressing OK the game tries to open some help document - most likely a .pdf document. Opening unknown mime types is forwarded to the host operating system (Linux / OSX), but if the game manually checks if there's a handler for application/pdf it won't find any and probably complain. The real problem that prevents you from running the game is whatever causes the first error message. Unfortunately I have no idea what that could be 😢 .
