LH 4.0 driver install refuses???
on Jul 14, 2008 at 9:09:55 pm

I want to try the 4.0 drivers to see if this fixes my rs-422 problems before officially contacting aja.

for some odd reason 4.0 or 5.0 drivers REFUSE installation.

The error I get is:

YOU CANNOT CONTINUE, THERE IS NOTHING TO INSTALL

5.1 driver is the only one that will install.
I am not running leopard and have no future plans to.

4.0 should install, I have admin rights and have successfully
uninstalled 5.1

There are no conflicts according to the checker, I am running the current supported version of quicktime and os x.

any ideas?

found the problem.

I had to manually delete the 5.1 .pkg file from the libraryreciepts folder.

ridiculous.

the uninstaller should handle this like every other software/hardware driver.

NO -- it should not--

Not when you are going backwards to a previous file version- you were regressing the drivers and the OS was specifically designed to prevent you from loading a prior software version on top of a newer one.

Absolutely it should. Every thing else does.

an uninstaller is made to do that....uninstall.

The black magic decklink drivers not only uninstall ALL software/drivers, but it also downgrades firmware if necessary.

The aja uninstaller should at least tell you what to do after it finishes, but it doesn't and thats an unwarranted inconvenience.
