The automated check- for-updates-upon-launch feature led me to download the upgrade (from 1.5.1 to 1.5.2), but I can't find the upgrade anywhere. When I launch Amadeus Pro again, it tells me that an upgrade has been downloaded, and asks whether I want to install it. Clicking "install now" just quits the program but doesn't install, and clicking "install after I quit" does nothing either. I'm still at 1.5.1.

OK, so I went to this website and downloaded 1.5.2 directly, dragged it from the dmg to the Applications folder, launched, and I got the same message: an upgrade has been downloaded, and do I want to install it. Same results as before when I click either button.

Seems to me something, somewhere needs to be reset, but I don't know what or how.

Any ideas?

Hi, the easiest thing is to delete the prefs:

Library/Preferences/com.HairerSoft.AmadeusPro.plist

This will destroy your settings though. The less invasive option is to double-click
that file and to just delete the line that starts with HSInstallNewApplicationLocation.
(This requires to have the developer's tools installed.) Regards,

Martin

I had the exact same experience with the upgrade procedure some days ago.
Moved "com.HairerSoft.AmadeusPro.plist" outside the preferences and it worked.

Just followed your suggestion, fixed my old plist with Pref Setter and put it back in. And yes my old settings have reappeared.

This thing is bizarre, I still don't understand why the installation of the
upgrade failed for some people but not for others... Regards,

iMac 24" System 10.4.11, Old version may have been 1.4.5 but I'm not sure.

Thanks, Martin. Worked fine. Of course, my settings disappeared (I don't have developer tools installed, so the whole .plist file had to be deep-sixed), but I'm rather a lightweight audio editor, so it might not be a huge deal. Guess I'll find out soon enough.

Anyway, thank you for Amadeus Pro!

I had the same problem. I'm running OS 10.5.8 and tried to upgrade. Instead of overwriting the file, it simply wrote an entire new file leaving me with two copies of Amadeus Pro - the old 1.3.3 and the upgrade. I tossed 1.3.3 in the trash and started up the remaining Amadeus which was the 1.5.2 upgrade.
