Cubase 6 fails to install on El Capitan (using steinberg installation tool)

Hello, I have Cubase 6 on my Macbook Pro running El Capitan and now got another Macbook Pro running El Capitan as well. This time it won’t let me install Cubase 6. Installation starts but fails at the end. It sais I should contact Steinberg to solve this but there’s no direct tech support! I hope someone can help me here because I don’t seem to find what is wrong wasting much time…Thank you.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Cubase 6 was compatible with Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8, only. Not macOS 10.11.

Maybe at your other Mac, you installed Cubase 6 on Mac OS X 10.8 originally (or other supported system) and later you updated the system, while Cubase was installed already.

Thank you for the answer Martin. I don’t think this was what happened though, because I remember putting a new SSD in, then installing El Capitan, and then installing all my programs… You kinda put me into thinking now…

P.s. On the page of the Steinberg installation tool it also sais that you can install stuff up to Sierra. Also Chat GPT sais you can run Cubase 6 on Sierra…
