06-11-2006, 09:55 PM #1I am trying to install AIM
Hello! .... first off I got my first mac (mac book) on thursday I am super happy!
But I really am not happy with the ichat. Therefore I am trying to download AIM... and it downloads from the website for a mac and everything is fine, but it downloads as a .bin file... and when I click it , it opens in excel. It dosen't start setting up... What to do?

I would suggest that you just stop trying to download AIM. It is super buggy even if you do get it to download.
Just use iChat. It is MUCH better and you can still use your AIM account with it.
Alternatively, you could use Adium X if you really don't like iChat that much.
If you absolutely must use AIM, then you will need to download Stuffit Expander to open the .bin file to install AIM.__________________________________________________
