Installer won't let me install the content file on an external device

When a user wants to install the content from the installer on an external device, all external devices are greyed out in the location select window.

This is a known issue with our installer and will be fixed in the future. As a workaround, you can relocate the .blob file manually. Open the plugin in a DAW. It will ask for the new location of the blob file and save it from then on.

    At first place, if I am not able to install due to the 'known reason', how can i see the plugin in the DAW, as it won't be installed due to the issue? What kind of solution is this?

    This workaround does not work in the Mac environment. At least not in Sierra, 10.12.6. When opening the plug in Live 10, it does ask for a path for the .blob if I have moved it from its default but if it is on an *external* disk, the .blob is greyed out.

    Hi again,

    The workaround, on Mac OS, was staring me in the face but I just now remembered how I used to do it.

    You just put the .blob wherever you want, make a ***symbolic link*** – symlink – of the .blob and then put the symlink where the plug expects the .blob (hd-whatever/library/application support/UJAM/ etc.). Of course you have to remove the ' symlink' suffix.

    I just tested with demos of VD-PHAT and VG-SPARKLE. Easy peasy (on Mac) with the freeware SymbolicLinker 2.1.1 ( You don't even have to mess with the terminal.

    Until UJAM can get around to fixing the installer… ;-)

    Kind regards,
