This is an upgrade Snow Leopard 10.6.8 from Tiger. I have always had the same logon which I thought gave me admin priviledges and I was trying to install Digital Performer 7.24 and I got a message that I did not have sufficient priviledges to install hard drive authorizations and I needed to sign in with an admin account which I thought I had presumeably done already. I had signed on the account that I had used from the time I had authorized tiger. Since it took consiiderable time and effort to install many Pro Audio music plugins I don't want to start again at ground zero. Help me if you can:)

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Do you meet all of Digital Performer 7.24 system requirements?


    Version 7.24

    • Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) compatibility

    • Improvements and optimizations


    Minimum System Requirements

    Digital Performer 7.24 requires a computer with a 1 GHz G4 processor and 1 GB of RAM running Mac OS X v10.5.8 Leopard or later to install and run. A display resolution of 1024 x 768 is also required.


    System Recommendations

    The minimum recommended system for Digital Performer is a multi-core or multi-processor Power Mac G5 or Intel-based Mac with 2 GB of RAM or more. A display resolution of 1280 x 1024 is also recommended.


    Pro Tools|HD System Requirements

    Digital Performer supports DAE versions 8.0–8.0.3 with the following Digidesign Pro Tools systems:


    • Pro Tools|HD (1, 2 or 3)

    • Pro Tools|HD Accel


    Pro Tools version 8.0 cs3 or later is strongly recommended. Support for Pro Tools 8.0.3 requires that Pro Tools is installed before installing Digital Performer 7.1 or later. If Pro Tools 8.0.3 is installed after Digital Performer 7.1 or later, the Digital Performer installer must be run again for DAE to function properly.
