Native Access 2 "issue with the installer service" error

Why is Native Access the only downloader I own that requires me to enter a password to install "dependencies" every time it launches?

Why is this app so very flawed? Why do I have to force quit and reinstall and try multiple times just to get it to - maybe - do what it is designed to do?

Why is this app, so central to everything Native Instrument users do, such a complete failure?

Just let users download individual libraries and install them. That is much slower and manually intensive but at least it works.

    This looks much more like a security or profile problem than anything related to Native Access 2.

    I've been running NA2 on MacOS 10 - 12.6.5 without problems, but have experienced problems like you explain with different software on a previous system, which had a partly damaged profile.

    Reinstalling MacOS helped.

    I recently reinstalled my OS. I am running the latest Mac OS.

    This does not explain why Native Access is the only downloader app that causes any issue. It's really pathetic performance from a major software developer. Output, Arturia, Spitfire, 8Dio, etc... are able to create downloader apps that just work. There is no excuse for thousands of users complaining about Native Access.

    I have gone through the numerous workaround and security settings suggested by NI support knowledge database.

    Now the error message is about a failure of the install script. Libraries download and have a 50% chance of failing to install.

    That's what I get. I have 5 more libraries to install. It's not working.

    You took the words out of my mouth. Native Access is a big issue. We shouldn't have to jump through all these hoops just to download paid for products.

    Just FYI: I had quite a few issues with Arturia's Software Center as well. You probably just have been lucky not to run into those.

    That said, I also think that NI should make sure Native Access 2 works correctly. There have been too many issues lately. Such software has to work. It's the tool to install and activate NI's plugins.
