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.

Thanks for answering! I'll surely update my OS

I have recently purchased a lightpad block and was interested in using roli studio player. When I downloaded roli connect, everything was working smooth until I tried to download roli studio player. I kept trying to download it, but it either had an error, or would stop downloading mid-download. Since I have the most recent macOS software, I thought that it would be fine, but since it isn't, I was hoping that I could find some help here.

This solution worked for me - Thanks

Yes. That solved it!

Not it works smooth !

Windows 10 64 bit

Thanks a lot

Roli Connect keeps telling me (Win 7) it is 64-bit which I don't have. So I can't download anything. Contacting Roli is next to impossible. Their products are great but contact and real support is non-existent.

Hi Ian, unfortunately ROLI Connect, ROLI Studio Player and ROLI Studio Drums require a minimum operating system version of Windows 10. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and please feel free to open a new support ticket and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Hi,


Roli Studio Player will not install , I keep getting this message:

Is this because of the mac Catalina software and is there a way to get around it?

Thank you!

This worked for me.

another solution that solved my problem getting it working was just opening the standalone app then everything worked as a plugin just fine. but before opening standalone I got the please run driver message and it was running when I checked activity monitor. but now all is well
