Try creating /opt/nm72 manually before running SETUP72. You may be having a
permissions issue.

Subject: [NMusers] Installation of NM7.2 on OSX lion for dummies.


I am trying to install NM7.2 on my macbook with OSX 10.7 lion installed. I
installed gfortran from this URL

I then tried installing OSX as described in the PDF readme on the
installation cd, but couldn't really figure it out. My NM 7.2 CD is in the
/Volumes/NONMEM_7.2.0 directory. When executing the installation command I
get the error message as pasted from my terminal window below and the
installation halts. Any feedback on what I'm doing wrong and getting NM7.2
installed is appreciated.
