Mac: open a command shell, navigate to the new folder VERGE and copy the content of the zip.

Maybe you have to allow access hidden user library file:
5- Start the verge-qt again, be patient approx 10-30 minutes until "Loading block index" disappear.
You will see this delay on every start of the verge-qt with this blockchain size and this wallet version.
Now after you wallet started finally, you have to be patient again, the wallet have to find a valid IP address which is responding.
This can take a few minutes, when connected the wallet will start syncing to catch up the last blocks.
6 - If you need further support take a look at the logfile debug.log and join Telegram, IRC, Slack, BitCoinTalk etc.
