Installation issue

Postby ohad » Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:15 pm

Hi

I had ver 3.8 installed when an update notice for v3.8.1 arrived two days ago... the update failed with lots of issues regarding permission to create folders. update to v3.8.2 came yesterday and it also failed with the same issue.

I've manually removed little snitch from application folder/library and all of the rest hoping that i will be able to reinstall it... but nop - i cant reinstall none of the versions (3.8.1,3.8.2,4.0.4...) although the system is cleaned from little snitch.

any direction would be appreciated - note that other apps installs just fine without any issues... thus i do not have any real permission issues...

Please note that the forums are not an official support channel. To contact our tech support, use this form: https://www.obdev.at/support/index.html ... ic=contact

That said, Little Snitch installation seems to fail because the Installer is denied write access to any of the directories it tries to install Little Snitch’s components into. Are you running some tool that prevents file access?

Hi all!
I have a El Capitan Mac OS X with dual boot windows 7. Is there currently a way to install Little Snitch without running into kernel panic?
Cheers, Bestazy

When you contact tech support, please provide more information, e.g. kernel panic logs if you have any.
