GP6 MAC - Impossible to use Guitar Pro 6 with Mac OS X Tiger or Leopard

Whether you just purchased GP6 or simply updated your software to its last available version we invite you to follow these few steps if you can not use Guitar Pro 6 with Mac OS X Tiger or Leopard:

  • Open the Finder and go to your Applications folder.
  • Drag and drop the Guitar Pro icon to the trash.
  • Use the Guitar Pro cleaner tool to clean up your computer.
  • Restart your computer
  • Make sure to run your computer as an administrator.
  • Make sure that your antivirus, firewall, proxy or router is well configured to accept Guitar Pro 6 installation.
  • Download and install this previous version of Guitar Pro 6.
  • Launch the installation and activate the program.
  • Do not update GP6 to the last available version.


Please note that you will have to stick to this version 6.1.7 of Guitar Pro 6 in order to use it properly on your computer. As a result do not install any available update from the Updater, other than your RSE soundbanks.

Warning: Do not follow this workaround if you use an other version of Mac OS X and experience some erratic behaviors, but prefer to contact our support instead.
