Thread: Pre-Leopard programs won't open!
04-16-2008, 03:11 PM #1Pre-Leopard programs won't open!
This only started the other day. When I try to open some programs (which all seem to be ones created before Leopard was released) they 'quit unexpectedly'. I have no idea why this is, can anybody help?!
Thanks very much

Have you added any new hardware or software recently?
What are your machine's specs?__________________________________________________

Well it won't open MS Word, Ableton Live, eMusic Download Manager, and a few little apps like AudioExtract
Haven't added any hardware, most recent software was eMusic Download Manager, which worked first. It then wouldn't open and neither do other programs.

YOu havent' by chance run Monolingual to get rid of extra languages have you? If you have, and did not look into the architecture settings, you may have lost the ability to run PPC apps. If that is the case, the fix is to do an archive and install to get that architecture bacek.
If you have not done this, I hope somebody else can help you.Mary

Repair disk permissions by running Disk Utility in the Utilities folder. See if that helps.
And check to see if you have installed on your Mac the latest versions available for those apps.
