Bria 4 is not compatible with high Sierra. Per CounterPath, the maker of the Bria software:
"Bria 4 was replaced by Bria 5 on June 22 of 2017, and several months later in late September Apple released High Sierra, which made significant changes that cause Bria 4 to no longer launch. It is not possible for Bria 4 to be modified to run on High Sierra. Bria 5, being a newer product, was able to be modified and has been updated to be supported by High Sierra."
