I upgraded to Leopard with a dl'd build of the final beta, but I can no longer access software update, i get a message that states "The file “index-leopard-seed-1.sucatalog” couldn’t be found on the server “swscan.apple.com”.

So i cannot access the software update. I tried to install a legit copy of leopard but it will only let me do an "ERASE AND INSTALL"

i do not want to nuke my comp. Any suggestions would be helpful

A legit beta copy? Are you a developer? If you are, you're late!

Unfortunately, we can't help you due to your illegal download and install of Leopard.

MHC, if he was a developer, he wouldn't be having this problem.

Well, from the sounds of it, you are running a illegal copy of Leopard. So we can't help you.

So...I'm assuming you downloaded this illegally, since the beta is not available for download anymore. Especially since in the first place it was only available to developers....yea I'll stop here.

Buy leopard like everyone else.

...and you should never use beta software on a production system. Especially not a beta OS...
