When I checked for updates on Studio, it said that updates were available. I went to the help section on the website and explained in detail what I had been through on both my desktop and my laptop, both running Mac High Sierra. However that entire submission crashed and was omitted. I am too exhausted to try to go through that entire long explanation of everything that I tried, including reinstalling Studio from the website. The long and the short of it is that I no longer have Studio on my computers, nor am I able to install it. Please warn people, don’t do the update until Topaz has fixed this problem!!!
PS - I was finally was able to install the RV 1.11.8. Now when, I check for updates, it says that no updates are available.
