Cant install Elements 8 (Mac Trial Version)

HI, I just tried to instal the trial version but i get a message telling me I can’t install because I dont have the latest version. I’m running Yosemite 10.10.4

The message says I need at least 10.6.0…

Is this a known bug?



What version of Cubase are you trying to install? Cubase Pro 8 and Cubase Elements 8 should install on 10.10 without any additional help. But if it is an older version of Cubase, you may need the 10.10 installation helper Steinberg Application Installer Tool | Steinberg

I’m installing the latest trial version of wavelab elements 8, not cubase

For Wavelab Elements 8, you can install with 8.0.5 from WaveLab 8 Updates and Downloads | Steinberg

It installed no problem until I started the program and I got a licence error (see attached image).

Is the link you provided for the trial version? Feels like we’re going round in circles :slight_smile:


OK, I think this is what I need: Steinberg Application Installer Tool | Steinberg

It looks like, unless you can provide me with a solution, the trial version is not compatible with Yosemite.

If you can answer this, as per my private message to you, maybe I can skip the trial and purchase elements 8:

"I actually dont mind skipping straight to purchasing the product but the specification is a bit vague about a key feature I use; markers. In the specs, it says something like ‘limited functionality only’… who knows what that means…

I basically, for example, cut, copy and paste parts of waveforms - all using markers. Thats pretty much all I use it for. Mostly editing DJ mixes or making my own edits of songs, medleys, etc…

Anyway, I hope you can help as I’m a full time event DJ and could do with being able to use it immediately."

Thanks for you help


One thing it means is that there are no CD track markers - CD layout is done differently in Elements from how it is in full WaveLab.
