nebula consists of it's vst-plugin-dll's and the libraries. It's like a sampler, that need to be feeded with libraries/samples. that's why the installation uses two folders. the first is your vst-plugin path, the second one is the path to the libraries - normally it is "/nebulatemprepository".
Thankyou for the links, I'm glad the manuals exist.
But it still took a lot of fruitless searching time, and an eventual forum request to find it. If you value your users' time, please consider ending the installation process with a html link to the manuals, or better, ensuring the guides are delivered as part of the installation proces.

And it doesn't show up in a spotlight search. (I'm using OSX 10.5.6)
Thanks for your help Micro, but your solutions are actually highlighting the problem.
You should be aware of it because it tells you during the install process. I know that not everyone is as familiar with various aspects of computers, but as you install ANY app or software, you should take the time to learn where it is being installed. Just my opinion. I do this because I tend to install audio stuff to custom folders.
I don't think cc808 is making an unreasonable request.
I found and read the pdf user guide and found no installation instructions within it.
That was four days ago when I sent in my .ser files. I've been checking my user area and email folders frequently. I'm still waiting.
I'm glad that the forum and FAQ section is available, and I'm happy to hear that Giancarlo will be working on the installer. But because the installation and registration process is a bit unique I don't think it's unreasonable that clear instructions be provided.

No, the installer Nebula3freeInstaller.mpkg_1.3.478.zip (OSX) doesn't tell you during the install process. I ran it again to make sure. On a more philosophical tech point, it's not a general truth that users should need to know the guts of their machines in order to get good functionality from them, and this isn't the trend of development either. Most good installers (on osx anyway) are almost one click processes, with guided explanations delivered upon exit, because their developers value their users' time.

I did eventually, thankyou. And that's good to know. I'll almost certainly be upgrading to Nebula Pro.
I'm with cc808 also, installing Nebula is not very intuitive as it is, you actually have to learn the process which does take up one's time. When I installed Nebula (and upgrades) the first time, I made mistakes and ended up with files in wrong places, very frustrating.
I no longer have any problems as I now know the process, but I did have to learn it.
I hope Ginacarlo will make the installation more 'transparent' with clearer instructions.
