ACC-0202 • AccuRIP Install and Driver Errors


Most Install errors have been resolved by the current AccuRIP version. Verify you are working with a current version AccuRIP Black Pearl. Previous versions are 1.03 and earlier require an upgrade.

Purchase an UPGRADE to Black Pearl, and/or review the information provided below for Mac and Windows resolves.


Mac users can sometimes see an error when you do not have the proper Administrative Rights to add software. You need to switch to a login space with proper Admin Rights and Privileges. Apple resolves most of these issues within the newest OS releases. Stay up to date.

***It is highly advised to run the AccuRIP installer again. The installer tells the OS to allow the addition of drivers.
