Steinberg Application Installer Tool for Yosemite

November 6th, 2015

The Steinberg Application Installer Tool is a small software tool that enables a seamless installation of some of our software not compatible with the Mac OS X Yosemite (v10.10) operating system.

Please note that current Steinberg software installed before the Yosemite update is not affected!

Pay close attention to the fact that currently some of our products are not compatible with Mac OS X Yosemite (v10.10). The only purpose of this tool is to allow the installation on Mac OS X Yosemite. Please be aware that running these products on Mac OS X Yosemite may cause other issues. It is entirely at your own risk, and Steinberg cannot be held responsible for any consequences that arise from this.


Using the Steinberg Application Installer Tool for Yosemite

  • Installation from DVD: Insert the DVD. It will be automatically mounted by Mac OS X, which means being made accessible in a new window.
  • Installation using a downloaded medium (*.dmg or *.iso): Double-click the downloaded image file to mount it, which means opening it as a virtual drive in a new window.
  • Leave the window as it is. Do not start the installation!
  • Instead, download the Steinberg Application Installer Tool for Yosemite
  • After the download has been completed, double-click on the downloaded file Steinberg_Application_Installer_Tool_For_Yosemite.dmg.
  • A new window opens. Inside, double-click on the 'Steinberg Application Installer Tool For' to start the utility.
  • If the tool recognises the already mounted installer, the installation will be suggested within a newly opened dialog box.
    Click on [OK] to start the installation.

    If no compatible installer can be found, an error message pops up. In case an installer is not being recognised even though it is listed below, please contact our support team via your MySteinberg account.
