Xplane 9 Install Problem - Cannot change destination folder

asked May 28, 2016 by Registered user 5 (15 points)
I am installing X-Plane 9 from an external DVD drive onto my mac (OSX10.10.5).  When I click "DESTINATION" on the installer GUI, the installer crashes with the error "Installer 900 quit unexpectedly."  I would appreciate assistance.  I must change the destination, as the program will not load into the default location (I believe it is the DVD location by default).

Hello.  You should NOT use the V9.00 installer as that is very out of date.  Please use this updated installer:
