Hello everyone. I can't get some applications that open on my OS (10.4.11) to open on my friend's computer (10.3). Is there something that i need to tweak first? I have no idea what would cause this to happen. Can anyone help? Thank you in advance.

For your friend's Panther Mac, check for older versions of software - as an example, OnyX 1.5.3, as opposed to 1.8.5. for Tiger. FB 9 says it works with Panther, but I'd go for an earlier version. I think your friend should also repair permissions (with OnyX).
