AccuRIP Install and Driver Issues
Most installation errors have been resolved with AccuRIP Black Pearl. Previous version users should upgrade. See Apple and Windows info below.
(A) Mac users can sometimes see an error when you do not have the proper Administrative Rights to add software. Switch to a login space with proper Admin Rights and Privileges. It is highly advised to run the AccuRIP Black Pearl installer again. The installer tells the OS to allow the addition of drivers.
(B) Upgrade to Apple’s OS El Capitan (10.11) made changes to how it manages user permissions. You can no longer use the Apple Disk Utility to repair or verify the disk. Apple claims to manage this automatically during updates/restarts. Permissions commonly become corrupted, they continue to work until they reach a breaking point.
El Capitan Resolve
Create a “root” login space (Unix Super Admin) and create the AccuRIP Print Driver while under this space. Then log out and return to your regular user space. A root login has none of the restrictions of other logins including Admin.
Here is the link to enable the root user.
Apple has fallen behind on this info, but you can use the Lion OS info with Mavericks, Yosemite and El Cap.
Understanding the root login will also keep you from bringing your computer to the Apple store for issues that appear major, but in fact are minor.
Windows Error Code 5 or Error Code 2 Windows .dll Error or Error 26 can be related to the Windows UAC (User Account Control) feature that blocked the building of the AccuRIP print drivers. Usually seen at the point of trying to add the driver or complete the install wizard.
