Hi, I've a Macbook Pro running Mac OS X Version 10.6.8 I'm trying to install a piece of software which requires 10.7.3 - so I used the software update function, but my machine thinks all of my software is up to date! How and where can I upgrade to 10.7.3?

Thanks

10.x releases (10.5, 10.6, 10.7, etc.) are paid upgrades. You can get 10.7 from the Mac App Store which should be installed on your machine. If you do decide to go that route, make sure to make a backup first.
