Trying to install LOR 4 on using Mac with Parallels and Windows 10 Installed.


Recommended Posts


I am trying to install LOR 4 on a macbook (MacOS using Parallels and Windows 10 virtual machine and can't complete the installation.  The error I am getting is \\Mac\Home\Documents\Light-O-Rama cannot be created.    Then a message that Light-O-Rama has not been correctly installed.

Is there any article or forum entry that would help?

So is this when installing the LOR software on the MAC or the Windows VM ?

Have you tried manually creating that "Folder" first - then run the installation

Yes, I solved the problem by creating a new account and it worked fine.  I don't know why the original account won't let the software create the required folders.

I am trying to install LOR 4.4.16 on a Mac running the latest version of Parallels.

I am getting this same exact error about not being able to create the MAC\Home\Documents\Light-O-Rama directory.


You say that you "created another account" and that fixed the issue.


Can you explain in more detail what this means?

Sounds like a permissions issue.  Does the folder/directory already exist?

Perhaps go ahead and create the directory before you do the install so the installer just drops the files into a path that already exists. 


/runs Parallels on Mac and Win 7 Pro and has run it for LOR for years.  

// ran 4.4.6 for a couple years and just now moved to the highest version that isn't 5.x
