Move from PC to Mac OSX AUTHORISATION

Postby wakevortex » Tue Aug 30, 2011 11:17 am

Hi there

I have recently moved to osx from windows 7 , and need to get nebula pro and server running on the new osx machine.
I have copied the WHOLE main directory from my pc which contained everything (including the pc SER file) and it is now in
Library/Audio/Presets/AcusticaAudio/Nebula3
I have also installed the latest server for osx -1.3.499n
The program seems to load as normal as a vst and AU but surely its using the old PC auth... how is it working at all? ?
I am getting some presets working, others not,so I'm not convinced this is installed correctly.....
What SHOULD I do to make this a true, correct authorised clean install, while using all my old presets and purchased libraries

thanks!

You need to repeat the whole authorization process (install Nebula, instantiate, send .SER file). It can't be copied from hard drive to hard drive or one machine to another. That shouldn't affect your Programs/Vectors folders (which hold all of your programs), those you can copy.

hmmm

where is this written down step by step for OSX? I can only see references to how to do this on pc (which I did before) ,and all directory names etc are therefore wrong for osx...

if you could point me to a document or post that would be very helpful!

weird that it is working at all though on osx having copied the directory !

thanks

Im afraid that applying a logical approach has failed...

deleted ALL files...plugs and acustica directory
Reinstalled from scratch the Nebula3installersetup.mkpg clean install

ran nebula as a vst.. it never initialises properly and does NOT create a SER file in the acustica directory -the GUI sits on the loader screen , never gets past it....

Can someone explain what I have to do to reinstall this ..?

frustrated now. I have been using this for MONTHs on the pc, and now am stuck . I hoped this was going to be painless!!

any help appreciated

I've actually never installed on OS X yet so I'm afraid I can't help you much with that side of the problem; but it sounds like you did the right thing (blow away the old install and reinstall from scratch). Hopefully someone else can come along with more Mac-centric knowledge.

My MBP comes next week so I'll be watching for replies, will have a similar task myself.

Bizarrely opening it as an AUDIOUNIT and NOT vst worked...I now have a SER file...
Will resend that and see how we get on...
