    Question Popcorn: Need some Installation Help.
    I just bought and down loaded Popcorn from the Roxio site. They had a special and I paid $29.95 so I figured, what the ****?

    Anyway, it downloaded as a .sit file. When I click the icon to install it, it says, "There is no default application specified to open the document "Popcorn_10_ESD.sit"". I'm not sure what that means. Do I need a special installer or something? Or can I open this with anything in my OS?

    I'm running Tiger OSX (10.4.1). I know there are some issues that Popcorn and Tiger are having as of now, but the people that are having these issues can still install and use it, but only to an extent.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    that is a compressed file, use stuffit expander to open it, the installer is inside.
    try selecting it and click File>open with>select stuffit expander. or look in your utilities folder, or select the file, click file>get info>in the infoi window, in the open with tab, select stuffit expander, click change all.

    Is that in the OS? Or do I have to down load that? I know I had it in my previous OS but its not in Tiger. I dont think anyway.

    Nope, no Stuffit on my computer. Would it be on the Tiger disk and could I just choose to install just Stuffit from the disk?

    Thumbs down Well, It Looks Like I Found My Reply...
    This kind of stinks, but whatever. Found this on a website after a Google search..

    Found in this link: http://daringfireball.net/misc/2005/04/tiger_details
    Tiger Details:
    StuffIt Expander No Longer Included ?

    StuffIt Expander is no longer included on a fresh installation of Mac OS X. If you installed as an upgrade, your old copy is left untouched, but if you do a clean installation, it isn’t installed.

    On the plus side, the faceless BOMArchiveHelper application, which in 10.3 only expanded ‘.zip’ files, now expands ‘.gz’, ‘.tar’, ‘.bz2’, and possibly other open archive formats — and it does so much faster than StuffIt Expander. But, StuffIt’s own file formats (‘.sit’ and ‘.sitx’) aren’t open, and so if you want to be able to open them, you’ll need to install StuffIt Expander on your own.

    I just down loaded from Allume Systems. They have the Disk Image of their Stuffit Utility.
