(if there are folders or files from previous installation of GSG Hub please delete them before installation - Folders: "Greyscalegorilla" and "osx_r2024_greyscalegorilla" )

To access that folder you can run Cinema 4D and go to Edit menu > Preferences then click Preferences folder button (after you access the folder please shut down Cinema 4D)
