First make sure Poser really isn't running. If it's not then the message is actually telling you exactly what is needed to fix Poser. The lock file needs to be deleted.

Here's how:

In the Go to Folder dialog type (or copy and paste) exactly this:

~/Library/Group Containers/F6C5GMLRY9.poser/Poser/13/


Then press the [ENTER] key.

Now delete the file named Poser-13


You can now launch Poser normally.
