Just purchased the upgrade to 4 this morning. Man that was easy and quick UNTIL you try to install it.
Download assistant starts up then “FAIL”:
“The system default download directory could not be found. Please fix this or define a directory via the ‘aria2c.directory’ property in the ‘application.properties’ of the Steinberg Download Assistant”.
Wwwwhat??? I try to click on anything in the “frozen” assistant then receive another jewel:
“Error in java.io.File.(File.java:279).” with a long list of java.lang.NullPointerException errors.
Can’t click “Enter your Download Access Code” because the whole thing is hung.
I recall issues like this back in the 90s installing misbehaved products but c’mon, in 2022 I receive these type of arcane errors???
EACH and EVERYTIME, without fail installing Dorico has been a nightmare. Just because the dev team and higher ups know what the issue is these type of errors are on par with Microsoft errors.
Can I get some satisfaction here please or a refund. I was trying to do a workout and install in between sets but on a Saturday morning, don’t need this type of hassle.
I have screen shots of each and every step in the install process.
EDIT: THe Assistant finally opened up and allowed me to enter my download code, THEN: ERROR e-license db is out of date or something to that effect, click to upgrade. Still waiting, stay tuned.
Ohhhh man. So after that wait, I install the activation code as requested then: “The currently installed version of the eLicenser Control (eLC) is too old. Please try again after downloading and installing the latest version of the eLicenser Control Software from <www.eLicenser.net>.”
REALLY??? Isn’t modern software supposed to have all those checks and balances performed???
I’ll try that one last thing then, I’m done.
