Installer says "not enough disc space to install archicad 18" but there should be plenty! Installer doesn't allow to change the install location. Computer gets stuck if i try. But i read somewhere that you can't change the application install location at all with macbook pro..Can someone help?

If you choose the Custom Install option during installation you can specify a new location for the installation.

It doesn't give me a custom install option, and i've tried every way possible like i said earlier, in the same window the installer says not enough disk space, there is a browse button which gives the opportunity to choose installation location, but it jams the computer if click it. So i think i should somehow change the location before installing, but i don't know how, or is it even possible in macbook. My friend has the exactly same laptop, with even less disc space than mine, and there was no problem when i installed the archicad there. And it works fine. I really don't know what's the problem.

Could this be some kind of a permission issue, where a folder on the path to the installation folder does not give you enough permissions?
Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the Mac, so hopefully someone else also has an idea.

I had the same problem. I was running OSX Yosemite 10.10. But when I upgraded to 10.10.5 I got to change the installation folder, but I had no space again. So I installed it on a portable flash drive and relocated the folder to Mac and it works.
What Mac and OS are you using?
