Installing Reality on MacOS Sierra 10.12.1

Postby PlatnumK » Thu Nov 17, 2016 6:01 am

As you may have noticed that a few people have been having problems getting Reality 4.3.1.16203 to install on MacOS Sierra 10.12.1 and each time they get the following error

After many hours trail & error, And liaison with Paolo I believe that I have found a solution, It has to do with the way MacOS Sierra handles File Permissions. As many have found that Apple in their infinite wisdom decided to remove the ability to fix permissions from the terminal.

At 1st I thought that the problem lies with the RealityInstaller.app but not so. The problem is with the Permissions on the DMG File, So if we can no longer fix the permissions from the terminal then how do we correct this particular problem.

1. Open the DMG file as per normal so that it mounts as a virtual disc
2. Close the window that pops up that has the RealityInstaller.app in it

3. Open Disk Utility and select the Reality Installer Disc from the last on the left, Then click on First Aid

You should now be able to run the RealityInstaller.app without any problems. Hopefully you will find short guide this helpful, And please let me know if this works as I don't have access to another Mac to test this out fully.

Daniel, thank you very much for this. I will look into this and possibly update the DMG file.

Thanks for providing this workaround. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. When I run First Aid on the dmg file the log shows no problems were found and no changes to the dmg were made and I still get the missing configuration file message. I'm unable to install Reality.

Try this https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205331 (just do step 8) then reboot and try again,

Or Right Click on the RealityInstaller.app and select Show Package Contents, Then Navigate to Contents/MacOS and Right Click on the RealityInstaller and select Open so that the installer runs from the terminal

Many thanks to you, mwcsb, for helping me make this work. The terminal installation was the only thing that I could get to work. And it worked like a charm!
