    Hi Gunnar, thanks for the post and apologies for the lag in moderation time here!

    For anyone who's wondering, Gunnar's issue was resolved in a support request, it had to do with allowing the installation to take place in Preferences > Security and Privacy (it was a permissions-related issue, essentially).

    It's been a while since then and we have released the v4.4.7.34 Beta with Big Sur compatibility. Theoretically, it should also resolve a lot of permissions-related issues due to the changes in the Systemwide app driver format (currently monitoring the Beta testing results). 

    I should mention that Reference is not supported on Hackintosh machines so issues are expected. Thank you!

    Hi Karlis,

    I seem to have the same problem ons startup, I also have a Hackintosh on Catalina. Could you explain what was the problem / fix concerning Preferences > Security & Privacy ? 

    Thank you,

    Michiel

    The issue was resolved in a support request, but for anyone else wondering about the Security & Privacy issue, the installation is sometimes blocked by macOS.

    To resolve this, go to Preferences > Security & Privacy > General and check if the Sonarworks installer isn't being blocked by the system. If Sonarworks shows up there as being blocked, click on the Allow button in order for the installer to proceed. If the Allow button is not available (grayed out), click on the Lock icon and enter your password to make changes:
