Welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand.
Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.

Is it that OR the BGEE:Siege of the Dragonspear ? If it's the later, you need to setup the modmerger before you can modify the install at all... well technically it's just install that to the game, but as it needs to be done before any other mods, I wwould call it setup.

It is BGEE:Siege of Dragonspear. I'm not using Steam or GoG, I got it off the Beamdog website. So I didn't think mod merger was needed?

So it's the solo SoD without the original BG1 portion. That will explain parts of the failure, as there's no definitions for it, so to speak. CamDawq needs to look into this further, and deside where to place items if there's need. For now, you won't be getting anything out of installing the component to your SoD game.

I can get version 3 to install just fine. So perhaps I will go back to that.

I am using OS X 10.12.5. Also I'm using the Beamdog client version 2.1.3. Clean install on everything.

You will need to use Modmerge with BGEE:SoD no matter where you got it from.  SoD is distributed in a format that WeiDU does not understand.

so this line: "ERROR: COPY ~./inlined-macro/cd_extend_bg_area_script.tpa~ ~./inlined-macro/cd_extend_bg_area_script.tpa~ FAILED: cannot open target" is probably OSX related.

That's not true. SoD from Beamdog store has different files and it dosen't require installing modmerge at all.

This is rather odd. It's objecting to copying an inlined file, defined right above this step, which I'm not sure I've ever seen before.

Maybe try a COPY - instead of COPY?

So going with the COPY - suggestion, I changed the line in the g3_cpmvars_master.tpa file to COPY - ~./inlined-macro/cd_extend_bg_area_script.tpa~ and it appears to have installed ok now. If something seems strange after I start playing I'll let you know. Thanks for all the help.
