Error Creating a Directory When Trying to Install Mediascounter’s DL Tool:Mac

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi. I’m using Mac but it’s running on XP via VMware’s Fusion 3.1. and I am trying to install Mediascounter’s Download Tool but I am always receiving an error message telling me that there is an “Error creating a directory”.

I want to know if anybody here has this kind of software running on Mac via emulation because I need to know how you install the software so that I can use it on my computer.

Thank you.
