Hi Michael,


We have prepared a set of steps as a workaround to reset ROLI Connect to a state that will allow you to download and launch ROLI Studio Player successfully. Please be aware that these steps may require any other software you've installed via ROLI Connect to be installed again, which you can do so from the ROLI Connect 'Apps' tab.

Please carefully follow the steps below, exactly as they are stated:

Deleting two DB folders did not help.

After restarting everything is OK on my PC.

I've got a version of OSX Mavericks 10.9.5, and everything is running good , but Studio Player doesn't install. I didn't find the files to reset, need some help, please!

Hi Loris,

I'm afraid that ROLI Studio Player is not supported on OSX Mavericks. The earliest supported version for Mac is macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
