Installing BFD ECO on High Sierra and Mojave

Ok - after buying a little to much stuff i do not really use I decided to start my life with BFD buying the ECO version.

Installing the 1.7 on High Sierra and Mojave worked fine. I see and can insert BFD ECO on my Pro Tools systems. Unhappy me - there is no Data. After doing a little research - to be honest: after reading what is written on the download page ;) - I understood that i have to install Data from 1.5.

Unhappy me - the 1.5 installer doesn`t work anymore on High Sierra and Mojave.

I tried to copy what I found in resources of the installer files and folders to my drive. Although BFD seems to accept the paths there still is no data present for the Drums … All icons show a warning sign - they seem to play but there is no audio. All i read when updating the database is that I have unautorized files on my drive. I havent - all I have on the drive is what i bought and the Software is authorized.

Can anyone tell me, where i can find the open, NOT installer-based Data of BFD ECO and a step by step explanation, where exactly to put the files.

Thank You very much.

Do you have a laptop or another computer you can install just the data on?
Maybe a friend?

If you can then I would try that, then move it on to a flash drive and copying it to your computer and pointing BFD Eco to it.

Thank you for answering!

I already thought about recovering a Snow Leo to an old iMac - BUT, to be very honest - I am not the only one having those issues and FXpansion really could move a... and post a download of open files. There is absolutely no reason I see why FXpansion can not do that, in case installing to an old computer and moving the files is a solution.
