    G4 and ProTools help.
    I finally got PTLE 7.3 and the Mbox2, but every time I try to install it on my G4, it says the following...

    "The application Installer quit unexpectedly.
    Mac OS X and other applications are not affected.
    Click "Reopen" to open the application again. Click "Report" to see more details or send a report to Apple."

    I have too much money and time invested in this crap for it to suck and not work. Which by the way, really ticks me off beyond belief. And I only used that word tick because I don't want this thread to get erased. Can anyone help me with this? Please...?

    What G4 do you have? What are your machine specs?
    Look here to see if you match up: Pro Tools LE 7.3 with Power Mac G4

    I have a 1GHz G4 with Mac OS X 10.4.9
    It has 512 MB of ram.
    I don't know what the deal is.

    Ok, there's a change of plans now. Now it says that after ANYTHING I do. Safari, iTunes, msn messenger, quicktime, pages, system profiler, ALL OF THEM. What do I do now? I am actually not even typing this right now. I just copied and pasted because Safari is gonna crash on me here in a second. This must be some kind of virus or SOMETHING. I have no earthly idea. Please somebody help. It will be deeply appreciated. Goodbye now.

    Maybe This is the problem
    total System RAM
    768MB minimum required for Pro Tools LE 7.3 - More Recommended
    More RAM increases overall system and Pro Tools performance

    Backup your data and re-install OSX?

    I'm fairly new to the Mac OS so I'm not sure of how you would run a repair process on the OS.

    Actually, I think you're correct. I suppose I'll get an external hard drive. But why does everything still crash even though I didn't install PT? All I get when I try to open anything is this...

    "The application Installer quit unexpectedly.
    Mac OS X and other applications are not affected.
    Click "Reopen" to open the application again. Click "Report" to see more details or send a report to Apple."

    I suppose I have a virus or something. Maybe I have too many songs. I have 26.35 GB available and I think that has everything to do with it...I don't know what to do.:radioacti

    I tried to re-install 10.4.9, but got the same thing I always do. I suppose I just need to take it to CompUSA and let them clean it because I'm sick of seeing the same thing no matter what application, installation, or download I try to open.

    "The application Installer quit unexpectedly.
