Hi Meileen,

It looks like there’s a conflict with the Mac system permissions. Please follow the instructions below to fix this.

  1. Get a new installer from the downloads page directly. Download
  2. In MacOS System Settings > Privacy & Security > Full Disk Access, enable full disk access for Installer if it is not enabled already.
  3. Then, go to Privacy & Security > Files and Folders, enable the Downloads folder for Installer.
  4. Run the installer and let me know what happens.

If that doesn’t work, please submit a support ticket at with the support beacon on the bottom right corner of the page so we can take a closer look at your specific computer.

Hi Tim,

Perfect! Upgrade has been installed.

Thank you!
