I had trouble installing FCP Studio on a MBP. Disk space is no problem; I set installer to put the loops and templates on a clean, new 300 Gb drive, and main drive has 40 Gb free.

The installer keeps hanging on the portion where it states it is writing the DVD Studio Pro Templates. The first time, the progress bar got to 100%, but did not move for 30 minutes, and both the nottom buttons are greyed.

I did a force quit, tried from beginning (skipping components that did get upgraded), and this time it just stopped at 98%.

For the third try, I had to skip everything related to DVD Studio Pro, and the installer got to the end of its work ok.

Not sure what I am missing- I have on my remote drive:

Library/Application Support/DVD Studio Pro/Apple/

Patches/
Shapes/
Styles/
Templates/

with content in all 4 directories.

It's not critical as I have no immediate needs for pressing DVD titles, but only expect difficult installers when I have to boot in XP

MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.4.6), 2.0 Gb RAM

    Hey Alan - I was having the same problem and wanted to know if you were able to solve it. I'm on a G5 running 10.4.8 and I can install everything in Final Cut Pro except the templates for DVD studio Versions 3 and 4.

    I'm still looking for the answer. Have you had any success?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    No Joe, but I've not really tried anything. I have no immediate need for DVD Studio. I thought I maye have had a bad disk but if you have the same issue it might be a problem with the installer script.

    I was installing these on an external drive, bot sure if that is a factor.

    Hopefully Apple reads these forums...
