Sounds like this is purely a problem with the installer. It appears PMS is installed just fine, which is why you can run it.
Maybe you can see a helpful error message in the console (Applications > Utilities > Console) after the installation?

Not being able to find the PS3 is an unrelated problem.
See if the FAQ can help you further:

I have the same problem on my mac that runs OS 10.6.8.

During the installation, it hangs on step 6 of 7, but says that the overall installation is 3/3.

When i open PS3 Media player, it will open for a moment, then close itself.

This happens to me too, when I started using ps3 media server it worked fine, than all of a sudden it wouldn't find my ps3 or my xbox. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling to see if that would help and the step 6 out of 7 showed up. I've been looking for a simple solution for this forever because I miss streaming my mac videos and music to my ps3 but i've come to no avail. Every so now and than I try to see if it'll work and every time I'm disappointed. I also see this problem happening for a lot of other mac users and I haven't seen a single person show how to fix it

I experienced a similar issue when installing 1.90.1 on OS X 10.8.5. When the installer reached step 6/7 and stopped I presumed the installation was over so I hit the "quit" button. Then it returned "Failed to write uninstallation information"

The only console message is
Code: Select all

PMS seems to be working ok.


Any chance we could have a mac version that doesn't have an installer (for those of us who know we have JRE 7 installed)? Like the way 1.82.0 was just a stand alone app.
It would save download bandwidth and this issue.

I had a look inside the app bundle (right click "show package contents") and there is an extra empty folder called "Uninstall". I guess that is related to my error.
I suppose there should have been something written to that folder?
Could some one with a good mac installation look inside their app and check the Uninstall folder to see if anything is in there?

The installer claims to be at step 6/7, however there are only 6 panels defined - one of which is skipped (you may have noticed numbers jumping from 2/7 to 4/7).
This is probably a bug in IzPack, although I couldn't find a matching issue.

As a workaround, I have added a finishing panel. Now the count ends at a confusing 7/8, but at least the installer will say that it finished.
Also I disabled writing an uninstaller (just delete the app to uninstall it) and allowed Java 6 for the installer.

Hopefully this helps a bit, try a snapshot build to give it a spin.

I downloaded that snapshot build (c3db01c69 (2014-01-22)) and its much better. The final confirmation message is a good improvement. And there was no error this time.Thanks.
