    So far, "Pro Video Formats" version 2.0.1 has installed itself four times on my iMac in the last two days. For some reason, the iMac doesn't seem to know/understand that this software update is already installed.

    Suggestions on how I can tell the Mac this was installed?

    (I've tried rebooting, etc.)

    Thanks,

    - m

    P.S This update issue is sort of like, but not as bad as, my Windows VM where updates routinely fail for no good reason.

    If you have a copy of Pacifist, you can install the package with that and it will stop software update from thinking it's not installed.

    There is no "package" per se as this is being installed directly from the Mac update. I did download Pacifist and did a Search Receipts for "Pro Video Formats", but it didn't find anything.

    How would I use Pacifist to help me?

    Unclear.

    Thanks,

    Download the standalone update from the Apple support website.

    Interesting. Yes it worked!!! Thank you!!!

    I tried to download and just install the DMG without Pacifist, but it didn't work. Pacifist worked perfectly.

    Not sure I need to get a license for Pacifist since this type of thing has never happened in many years, but it's a nice utility to know about just in case.

    What's really alarming is that a "Mac" install failed like Windows installs often do. Yikes! What's going on here Apple?!

    Thanks again!!!

    It's not installed 3 times. The update is just replacing the same files over and over.

    me too

    I'm having exactly the same problem! Glad to hear I'm not the only one. I'm assuming the problem is at Apple's end?

    After reading the posts above, I decided to see if that was the case for me as well and sure enough the update came back

    I have this problem too, updates repeatedly wanting to be reinstalled...brutal. I have the Pro Video Formats 2.0.1 update showing, and also Final Cut Pro X Supplemental Content 1.0 (which sucks because that one is like 800MB, over and over and over)...

    Hope they fix this issue someday.

    There is an updated installer released today which solves it. You'll get one more installation and that will fix it.

    ----------

    See above. This is an updated installer that will update one last time.

    Ok, installed the newest Pro Video Formats update again today...rebooted, and now it finally doesn't show up for installation again.

    The Final Cut Pro X Supplemental Content 1.0 update still shows up...
