Installation Failure


Recommended Posts

Unable to install Malwarebytes with Malwarebytes-Mac-3.1.1.505.pkg on MacBook Pro 13-inch 2016 running macOS Sierra v. 10.12.5.

I've tried under two different user accounts, one a new admin user to test the installation.

The installation fails with this error:

"The Installation Failed

The installer encountered an error that caused the

installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer

for assistance."

Here is the relevant entry from /var/log/install.log
