  1. Have a Mac. Downloaded the latest version of ELvUI. Followed the instructions above, just like I do with other add-ons, and did it with the game closed. There is only one version of ELvUI on my computer. Opened the game and checked the in-game add-on list and ELvUI does not appear. I use the bartender add-on and closed that, restarted the game and still no ELvUI in the in-game add-on list.
