Debugging

Note: Here if needed, the debugging steps at the end of this document will help you determine if there are files created properly before the next step.
 

Troubleshooting:

  1. If you launch Painter and your requested to sign-in.

Possible reason:

Previous installs of Painter 2022 causing registration/sign-in prompts:

If Painter was previously installed on a system without following the above process, please uninstall it, then clear these two folders. Failing to do so will cause Painter to prompt for registration.

Debugging:
The user folder should be cleared for all users who launched Painter on the machine:
~/Library/Preferences/com.corel.Painter2022
/Library/Preferences/com.corel.Painter2022

Possible reasons:

  1. The CorporateDeploy.plist file is not saved with the proper information or formatted incorrectly. Use the example in this document to make sure there are no errors in where the information is placed.
  2. Verify the serial number and ProfileID are correct.
  3. When you try to install Corel Painter 2022.pkg it fails.

Possible Reasons:

  1. The folder where you keep the Pkg files is run from a folder that does not have the access rights.
  2. If move all the files to the /Users/ Shared/ and run it from there it may help
  3. If you use Terminal to deploy the files, make sure Terminal has access to the folder where the required files are located. In System Preferences, click Security & Privacy. In the Security & Privacy dialog box, click the Privacy tab, and choose Files and Folders in the left pane. In the right pane, scroll to Terminal, and enable the check box for the folder where the files are located.
  4. Use the debugging information to make sure the files are created by the Corporate_XXXX.pkg

Debugging:
After running the CorporatePainter2022.pkg, you should see the following, these files are hidden. Look for instructions online if you are not familiar how to see this on your mac. Don’t modify these files before the next step

/Library/Preferences/com.corel.Painter 2022/com.Corel.Registry_USERS.plist

contains the PROFILEID listed in CorporateDeploy.plist

Location of the *.DTA files must in this folder

/tmp/DM23C.dta
