Performing a custom install when no host is detected

Starting with Exposure 5, if no host application is detected, the installer will automatically install the standalone version of the product. This can happen even if you have a compatible host installed, but we are unable to detect it. 

The main reason why we cannot detect a valid host, is due to a corrupted host file on a Mac, or missing registry entries on a PC. If you have this problem on a PC, the only way to correct it, is to run the Photoshop installer again. This will replace the missing registry entries. If this happens on a Mac, the problem is easily resolved by repairing the Photoshop Paths file

 

Performing the above custom install on a Mac

1. Start the installer by double clicking on it. 

2. Once you are at the License Agreement screen, click the Exposure Installer menu and choose Allow Custom Install.

3. Once you click the Allow Custom Install option, click Continue. Then you will be able to tell the installer into which folder you want to install your plug-in. If you are not sure where, just check out our custom install article. The paths are listed at the bottom of that article.

If this option is not present, just click Continue, and it will default to the custom installation screen.
