I saw the 2.1.7 update supports El Capitan. I downloaded it and am trying to install. The DMG file opens ok but when I double-click on the installer, it hangs on verifying.

Ok. After a bit of searching, I found that I needed to disable El Capitan's the system integrity protection. You can find instructions here:

This lets me get past the "verifying" hang-up BUT 2.1.7 doesn't like my current 2.1.6 registration info.

Alright, I just need to re-read the FAQ.

I am an existing Media 100 user. What is the current version?

The latest version of Media 100 is Media 100 Suite v2.1.7 which adds support for Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan). Users running Media 100 Suite v2.1 or higher are eligible to receive v2.1.7 as a free update. Please download the Trial Version and run the installer, entering your name and 60-day Trial Install Code. Although you are entering a Trial Install Code, your existing v2.1.x license will be recognized, and the software will be fully licensed.

After following the directions to use the trial code, the install worked smoothly and it incorporated my existing registration info.

Glad it worked out!

And ta for the tip on the System Integrity Protection. If I run into the same prob, I'll know what to do - although it does strike me as odd the protection doesn't allow verifying a volume, =P.

I think the extra protection is to help prevent malware from installing itself.

Maybe software developers need to update something on their end to make installs more El Capitan friendly? Or maybe Apple just needs to fix something.

Anyway, everything is working now.
