Getting an error message from the Download Assistant.

“An error occurred while downloading ‘HALion 7.0.10’.
Try again later.”

Manual dl from the support pages works.

And why connecting to “pathfinder2018-live.nskebzetbm.eu-west-1.elasticbeanstalk.com”?
And why now also for „forgerock.io“?

Slowly it starts to annoy. now the same problem again with this :rage:
And again weird attempts of connecting to wherever

Hi @bigsoundsgood.

First URL is regional content delivery instance.
Second URL is license and identity management (for your login in the Steinberg Dowload Assistant).
As we do not get more reports and testing the download works in general, we have to assume that it is a connection issue on your system or network.
Please understand that we can not troubleshoot all of your environment. But this article documents the connections used by our software:

Thanks Bono, for you answer and explaining the server and ports. But for sure it is not what you mention. It’s the first time I have this issue. And of course I am not blocking those with Little Snitch, like Jan Riesener from the support suspects in his answer to my ticket I opened.
And as you can see in the screenshot, DLM works, no connection issue on my system or network. And with all due respect, this is a run-of-the-mill answer. But whatever, I am fine without those Indian Drums. Hopefully this will not happen in future to more important downloads.

And while writing this, I tried again and voila there it is. Maybe you just don’t have to understand it :wink:

It looks like there is a problem in the AU version:

What is the difference between HALion Sonic 7 and HALion Sonic 7 Collection?

I own Cubase 12 Pro and Dorico 4 Pro. How do I upgrade to Halion 7

HALion Sonic Collection 7 is the product that supersedes HALion Sonic 3. It is the free HALion Sonic 7 player with almost all of the content of HALion 7, but not the features of the full HALion 7 instrument.

It is a paid product.

If you want the new player, make sure your Cubase and Dorico installations are up to date, then install HALion Sonic 7 from Steinberg Download Assistant. Both Cubase and Dorico will use HALion Sonic 7 instead of the older HALion Sonic SE 3.

If you want the full HALion 7 then you need to buy it. There are no discounts for owning Cubase or Dorico. You might want to consider buying Absolute 6 instead of HALion 7: Absolute 6 gives you HALion 7, Groove Agent 5, Backbone 1.5 and The Grand 3 as well as Retrologue 2 and Padshop 2 (which you already have as part of your Cubase Pro licence). Absolute also includes some chargeable expansions for many of the instruments. The only drawback of Absolute is that you have to upgrade Absolute if you want to benefit from the improvements in a paid update - you cannot upgrade the component products separately.

I have just updated and installed a number of applications and sound libraries, and on several of them, including Verve and others, the Download Manager presented an alert saying: Move ‘/Users/jmax.Downloads/Steinberg/OSX/Verve (optional)_Requries HALion Sonic SE/ADD_SMT_825_Verve_Samples.vstsound’ to ‘/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Content/VST Sound’ failed!

This happened with several VST Sound files, not just Verve.

I’m on MacOS 13.4.1
