Unable to install a few Instruments/Expansions

Batsauce Member Posts: 3 Member


I recently wipe my MacBook Pro (Catalina 10.15.7) clean & reinstalled everything. Unfortunately, I am having trouble installing the following:

Abbey Road 60s Drummer

Drum Lab

Ethereal Earth

Hybrid Keys

Scarbee Mark 1

The Gentleman

The Grandeur

Vintage Organs

I have tried on numerous occasions. I have the latest version of NI Access & plenty of storage space. Please help!

Thanks in advance!

    Look where your Download is Located (klick on the three dots)

    It should be on user/shared

    Not locking the Screen often helped me on bigger Downloads.

    What happens when you try to install ? Is the Download Crashing ?

    Appreciate the reply!

    I have it set to users/shared. Everything else installed successfully except for those 8 items.

    2 Questions:

    How do I not 'lock the Screen'?

    Is it possible to get the ISO for those expansions I'm having trouble installing?

    @Batsauce Make sure to give Full Disk Access to Native Access and the NTK Daemon, as explained here: Native Access Error Message: "Installation Failed" (Mac)

    If that doesn't help, my colleagues can help out and provide installers if needed, you can get in touch here: http://bit.ly/NIsupport_install

    Thanks for yr response!

    I made sure my permissions were correct for Full Disk Access. Still no luck. I am going to reach out to NI Support and try to get the installers.

    Thanks again
