I am visiting a friend for a while and trying to install eso on an imac that I left here a couple of years ago. it is on el capitan, the update just before sierra, and is an all in one but not a retina display, it has a 21.5 inch display at 1920x1080 resolution. It's a nice and fairly new imac.
I normally play on my windows pc.
When I download the file from my account page everything seems to be fine and it downloads to the downloads folder. I am in the main administrative account by the way, and the firewall is taken care of and is allowing the game through correctly, and I have great internet here.
When I click on the eso setup icon from the downloads folder though, setup appears in the tray for about a minute, doing nothing and being unclickable, and then it just disappears with no errors. From time to time, three times out of twelve tries, i get the null point error. I have restarted the system and checked the internet settings and everything that the support page says to do for null point but nothing changes. I can't even find any other file, just the single download file from the account page. In other words, it is not unloading itself anywhere.
I could use some help
