does anyone knows why I get this error on my mac (Big sur), trying to install the Trailversion of Rhino 7?
See the picture (it´s german, means in english: The action could not be completed because you do not have the necessary access rights for “Rhino 7”.
Unfortunately, I haven’t found a better alternative. after a day of unsuccessful installation Rhino 7 on my Mac Pro 6.1, i gave up. then I reinstalled (monterey). then the Rhino installation worked.
I don’t understand the problem either.
I don’t want to have to re-install my macbook pro (catalina). rhino 7 is installed, but the update does not work. same problem.
I am happy if someone finds the problem.
I’m trying to recall if I have seen an instance of this from someone running macOS in English. Since we cannot reproduce this on our end, perhaps we need to test when running in French or German.
Is anyone here familiar with Console.app? I’d be curious if we can see any additional error information provided by macOS in Console when this copy step is happening. “Installing” Rhino for Mac is really just a copy operation - it just copies the Rhino 7.app bundle (a bundle is a folder) to another disk location; we’re not running any of our code here. However, it is possible that there are contents in the app bundle that have permissions that are causing this error for some people.
This really leads me to believe this is a macOS update issue. Perhaps there’s still something we can do to avoid it - something non-standard we are doing that is causing macOS to really not like the permissions.
Hi Mitch, I have been struggling with the same problem these past two days. I suspected it could be a language version thing so I restarted in English. I even tried downloading from the english rhino page and I tried copying from the Terminal (tried cp and install). I didn’t tryst in superuser mode though. No change…
@dan I tried booting in recovery mode, DIskutil > first Aid booting again (OS in English), same result.
