How to debug Aquarius Desktop application installation or authorization issues

Modified on Wed, 27 Sep, 2023 at 2:30 PM

IMPORTANT: If not you provide us the Aquarius Desktop support data file the help-desk agents will not be able to provide you any help.

On Windows operating systems (OS), there is only one installation and authorization phase, which does everything from download to actual installation, but on macOS operating systems (OS), there are two phases.

In phase 1, the Aquarius Desktop application executes download, archive, extraction, and script creation. In phase 2, the Aquarius Desktop application executes script execution and installation.

Actual changes to the file system are applied in phase 2 when the Aquarius Desktop application helper tool runs a script. If the script fails, no changes are applied to the system, and downloaded files are not deleted.

Follow these instructions to provide us with the necessary information:

  1. Before you make any changes to your computer system, we strongly recommend developing and running a contingency plan that integrates a solid and reliable backup system. 
  2. Download and install the latest Aquarius Desktop application, version 2.6.x or superior.
  3. Log-in to the Aquarius Desktop application using your email user-name and password (mandatory).
  4. Purge the Aquarius Desktop stage area. If you would like more information on this topic, you can read and follow the solution in our knowledge base (KB): how to purge the Aquarius Desktop application stage area.
  5. Do a control + click on the Aquarius Desktop application logo in the upper left corner to reveal the pop-up support window.
  6. Enable the Aquarius Desktop LOG and click on OK.
  7. Download again the problematic product on the Aquarius Desktop application from the purchased page, and check that all files are created in the plug-ins destination folder.
  8. Do a control + click on the Aquarius Desktop logo in the upper left corner to reveal the support pop-up windows.
  9. Click on create support data file (SDF).
  10. Go to your computer desktop, and all files necessary are compressed into a single zip file.

If the ZIP file size is too long, upload it to a free cloud service and provide us with the download link.
