    VG-IRON_osx_ 611.pkg. I do not understand the meaning of 1.0.1.

    It is not displayed as AAX instrumental. It can not be used.

    Moving the .blob to an external disk doesn't work in the Mac environment, not even using v 1.0.2 of, in this example, VD-PHAT and Live 10 in Sierra 10.12.6.

    If I manually move the .blob to one of my external SSD:s, the plug does ask for the location of the content. When I navigate to my external disk, the blob is greyed out…

    Furthermore, while v 1.0.2 does offer a free choice of content installation, as soon as this location involves an external disk, all locations are greyed out in the dialog.

    Of course, the natural location for GB:s of content IS on an external disk, and thgis frustrating problem needs to be fixed ASAP.

    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 put the .blob wherever you want it (external SSD in my case), 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,
