Can anyone tell me what to try next? I've tried manually removing all applications concerned with Shockwave and then re-installing it while Safari was in Rosetta mode; but no use.

I had tried installing it previously, without putting S into R mode; because I didn't know any better (I am a windows veteran, just switching over to the MAC platform after numerous decades); so perhaps I didn't get all the pieces of the first downloaded plug-in attempt..... (there are a couple of icons in Finder, with the Shockwave heading, that say I can't get rid of them, because I don't have administrator privelages.........but, ahhh, it's my computer, and I am the administrator.........)

What I do seem to have are several pieces of Shockwave, in the Library/Internet plug-ins folder; but alas, like I said, even in Rosetta mode; Safari can't see them (i.e, they aren't bolded, and so, I can't click on them.) I can access info. about them when I go to my hard drive and say "get-info"; but none of it is very useful, although I did notice that they all have "none" checked in the box that says "open with this application". I don't know how to change this, though, since I wouldn't know which application to tell them to use; Safari isn't visible from here...........

Obviously, they simply aren't seeing each other..........what should I do? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers. neye:

P. S. I just switched over to a Windows MacBook Pro; with OSX; Tiger. I see that it has problems running Universal Applications; what's up with this, anyway? What was the point of it, I mean? Is it better for some reason, to have an OS that won't run UA's?

I hate to say it; but I'm becoming a somewhat disgruntled new mac seems as if every time I try to do something, I either need to buy another manual, or download another tweaker application.........egads.
