unable to connect to tor following download. i get the following message:

Tor unexpectedly exited. This might be due to a bug in Tor itself, another program on your system, or faulty hardward. Until you restart Tor, the Tor Browser will not able to reach any websites. If the problem persists, please send a copy of your Tor Log to the support team."

I was deleted, downloaded and restarted Tor several times. No resolution & same message. Please advise. Thank you!

If your running macOS then this may be #21074, entering the following command in terminal should fix the issue.
sudo launchctl limit maxfiles 10000 10000

The underlining bug has been fixed in the latest commit in the source code, the bug fix should included in the Tor . "The fix could be back ported to older versions."
Minor bugfixes: Don't exit the Tor process if setrlimit() fails to change the filelimit (which can happen sometimes on some versions of OSX). Fixes bug 21074; bugfix on 0.0.9pre5.
