“This application only runs on a SanDisk flash drive”

 But the application does run on the SanDisk flash drive!

it is not possible to run the App! 

Does somebody know what I didn’t recognice ot did wrong?

Thanks for any help


 I am having the same dilemma as well. Anyone knows what to do? thanks!

I changed the “NO Name” of the SANDISK flash drive to a simple three letter name for the flash drive with no spaces and it worked for me. Since the Mac OS is a  Unix  variant I deceided to remove all spaces in the name. I got it working, so I did not try any other combinations. I hope this helps. 

Changing the disk name did not work for me. What did work was downloading the latest version of the app and installing that on my drive.

All works properly now.

Changing the name worked for me. Make sure you don’t leave any spaces or punctuations in the sandisk drive name. It should be one word. Don’t do San disk. Do SanDisk or Sandisk. One word. It works. It will detect the drive for installation. Make sure the pkg is on your desktop.
