I have read elsewhere that the workaround for this problem is to run Carrara once as the “superuser”. Unfortunately, the only way to do this is via the Terminal application (which will allow you to screw up your computer big time).
The Terminal application gives you access to the command line interface for the Mac OS. With it, you have the power to do pretty much anything. But with great power comes great responsibility. You have to enter commands perfectly, there are no typos allowed.
To run Carrara as the superuser, you must first determine the directory path to your Carrara installation. The normal path should begin as /Applications/DAZ 3D/ followed by the name of the directory that the installer created, or the custom directory name that you chose. Let’s assume for this example that your Carrara folder’s name is Carrara8. You then follow that with /Carrara.app/Contents/MacOS.
So the entire path might look like this:
You need to go to that directory by using the “change directory” command.
Launch the Terminal application and type the following (including the quotation marks and the space after cd.)
cd ”/Applications/DAZ 3D/Carrara8/Carrara.app/Contents/MacOS”
Remember, this will only work if this is the correct path to YOUR Carrara installation.
After entering the above command, you then enter the following:
You will be prompted to enter your Mac admin password.
(sudo is the command for “super user do”)
Carrara should then launch, and you can enter your registration info.
THIS SCARES ME! I am not a techie code zombie!
