Invalid Installation Location

Last updated:

If you are getting the message "Invalid Installation Location" "The install path you selected cannot be saved to. Please select a non-private location instead" when attempting to download a library using the Library Manager, you are trying to download to a location or drive that you only have read access to.

In this situation, please change the download location to a drive or location that you have write access to.

Problem: I can't find any VST PlugIn called "Phobos" on my computer?!?! Can you help me? Kindly, Johannes Rothenaicher
