Reinstalling Sibelius 6- "unspecified error"

Post by bonesurfer » Wed Sep 21, 2016 1:17 pm

Hi all,

I had to reformat my Mac which was previously running Sibelius 6 totally fine. Once reformatted with the latest OS I tried to open Sibelius 6 and just got an error message saying "unspecified error". I deleted Sibelius then reinstalled it and same result.

What should I do?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sounds like it may be a registration/activation or other technical issue. You should go to the support help desk at and they should be able to help resolve the problem.

If you reinstalled Sibelius from time machine or some other backup, it may not work. Try installing from your Sibelius disc or download it from your Avid account.
