Applications :: UNIX Executable File Created By ITunes?

Apr 29, 2010

Has anyone else noticed this friendly looking executable file in their iTunes library?

It appears to be created and recreated by iTunes, but it shares it's name with a nasty piece of spyware so I'm really not liking it being there.

Anyone seen this guy or got any insight as to why iTunes would be creating it?

OS X Server :: File Display As Unix Executable Files

Nov 6, 2007

I have a problem with Unix Executable Files. When I access a file on our server using 10.4.x most files display as Unix Executable File. The same file accessed using 10.3.x displays the proper file creator icon and description. This seems to be a Tiger issue and it is causing a lot of grief. Many of the files are Quark and fonts. Adding extensions to the files is not an option.

OS X :: Downloaded MS DOS Executable File

Dec 29, 2009

I was just looking up the songs of the noughties, and I came across what appeared to be a blog, judging on the description google gave me. However on later inspection it appeared to be a kitchen website. Anyway on the website there was what appeared to be a video, and I was asked to do something, although it was in a windows style 'window' rather that the OS X style. I was promoted to download something from [URL] and I clicked ok, as this window would not go away otherwise, however I cannot find it on my mac, and it says it was an ms-dos executable file, does that mean it will not work on my mac? Here is the blog: [URL]

MacBook Pro :: Launch An Executable File On Partitioned Drive In Windows

Mar 23, 2012

I have a program that I must run on Windows as it is not supported on Mac.  I have a MacBook Pro running OS X Lion 10.7.3 with a partioned drive Running Windows 7.  Currently, I am rebooting to access the Windows side, but will eventually use the parallel software that is available, but baby steps first. (I am a new Mac user by the way, trying to get rid of the PC, but have found our accounting software is not supported for mac - inconceiveable I know!).  So, I have an executable file that I need to launch and cant quite figure it out.  I also have Boot Camp, but honestly don't have a clue what it does.

OS X :: Folder Turned Into A UNIX File?

Sep 29, 2009

I'm using Tiger

so I wanted to change my documents icon to a really fancy icon so I found this site called [URL] and followed the steps to change it into a suitcase of some sort. But my documents wouldn't open, and a dialog box popped up and said something about how no application can be run with this and it had the option to choose an application. So I deleted the suitcase, and now the folder has turned into a UNIX file which is not accessible.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Read UNIX File

May 15, 2012

I have a cd from a Dr. with x-ray images on it (supposedly).  The files say  "Unix Executable File".  It seems I have no application with which to open them on my fancy desktop....  Can you recommend a software program to open or translate the files so that they are readable, and perhaps compatible with iPhoto?

Applications :: Trying To Install Unix Telnet / SSH Client

Nov 3, 2010

I'm trying to download PuTTY on OS X 10.5.8

PuTTY info: [URL]

I interpreted the directions as meaning that I unzip the file in my home directory and tried the make command:


jdd:~ jasondancks$ make -f Makefile.gtk

make: Makefile.gtk: No such file or directory

make: *** No rule to make target `Makefile.gtk'. Stop.

Listen fellas I really don't really know whats going on here I just wanted to download this for easy access to the school server. I'm taking a database class and we use the windows version of this to connect. I'm still going through it all I was just wondering if there is a quick way of doing this.

Would the parts referring to 'classic' mac apply to me?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: App Won't Start, But Executable Does

Some Apps, (e.g. VLC Player, but others also) won't start if I open them regularly, they're just bouncing in my Dock until I kill them.

BUT, if I open the App as a folder (Rightclick, Show Package Contents) and find the executable (Contents/MacOS) and start it, it works just fine. Launching the shouldn't do much other than location this executable and running it.

Applications :: New Tab Opened With Safari Top Sites

Sep 9, 2009

Has anybody been having problems with Safari's new Top Sites feature? I've had Safari 4 since the day it came out on public beta, and this feature hasn't seemed to get any better. I seriously dread having to open a new tab, because it automatically opens the awful top sites list. I close my eyes and cross my fingers and pray that I don't get the beachball of death for anywhere from 10-20 seconds. Sometimes it works quickly, especially if I keep testing it over and over. It pretty much just displays a visual of the bookmarks that I already have displayed going across the top of my screen, and I usually just click on the bookmark instead of having to hunt down the page and click on it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Dmg Files Are Not Executable - Need To Reinstall It ( But Will Mount)

Apr 18, 2012

iMac 27, 2.8 Quad Core, 16 GB RAM, 3 TB HD running 10.7.3 lead in > Lately I am having trouble with Aperture 3.2.3 who doesn't let me make some image adjustments "out of the blue". To correct this I usially have to reinstall Aperture from scratch. Trying to do so made me find out that I can't execute the Aperture trial 3.1 dmg file or any other dmg file on my iMac. When i double klick on a dmg file it will flash once and then just sit there doing nothing. The dmg "Get Info" window shows that the file is associated with the as supposed to. I have no glue why it won't execute these files and open the installer. I have tried everything from executing with disk image to repair permissions etc, etc. and I have read all forums and threats I could find but to no avail.  

The only way to fix this is reinstalling OSX 10.7.3. After reinstalling Lion everything is just fine  - for a while. I am able to reinstall aperture with the trial version dmg file. All other dmg files will also execute. For now I was able to work with my reinstalled system for the last seven days with no glitches, but last night same problem occured as described earlier. I have also checked my harddrive with disk utility and onyx. Both apps say HD is just fine.

Applications :: How To Stop Video Autoplay When Opened In New Tab

Aug 9, 2010

I bought a 2.4Ghz MacBook pro last week. It is my first Mac, and I am slowly getting used to it. I have a couple of questions that I hope you can help me out with (I have searched but found no answers!):

1) In Firefox on my old PC, and Safari on the current Mac, if I open a video in a new tab, the video would not auto-play, until I clicked on the tab. On Firefox on the Mac the video just auto plays. This is pretty annoying when I open 4 or 5 videos in different tabs and they all start playing. I want to click on the tab before it starts playing.

As safari on the Mac does not play the videos automatically, I am hoping there is a way to stop it on Firefox?

2) I know that holding cmd and clicking on a link opens it in a new window, but is it possible to assign for example a 3 finger click to open a link in a new tab?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Use A Java Program To Write An Executable Applescript

Mar 31, 2012

I'm using a PC with Windows XP. I'm a private developer. I've written a project in Java and wish to deploy it to other people using email. I've written an Install program (the Main-Class) and successfully packed this in a jar file with the project class files and some data files all as described in the deployment trail in the Java Tutorials. A recipient with a Mac with OS X downloads the jar file and runs it to install the project class files and some data files. The install program then writes an Applescript file (Vocab.scpt shown below) on the Desktop to make starting my downloaded program easier but it doesn't seem to work and I think it may be because the script file is not "executable". Could this be the case? If so, how could I change my install program to make the script file executable or alternatively use some other system to start the downloaded program?


# Script to start: Vocab Version: 1.0.0

do shell script "cd /Applications/Vocab; Java Vocab"

Unfortunately I don't have a Mac to experiment with this problem and although I have spent some days on and off trying to find an answer in the mass of information available on Apple's website I can only find small clues here and there to answer my problem (which I would have thought was quite a common one). In Windows a batch file (eg. Vocab.bat) is automatically executable.

Applications :: Switching Among Opened Mac Applications

Feb 5, 2010

I've been enjoying the experience of using Mac OSX for at least a year and, regardless to say, find it very pleasant. However I have a small doubt regarding desktop management.

See, in the 'PC world' one is able to switch between opened applications by simply hitting ALT+TAB, similarly, in the 'MAC world' one is able to do something similar by hitting (the button with the Apple)+TAB, but it is not the same thing; I'll explain.

In the PCs ALT+TAB actually switches among all opened windows, not just applications (if one has, for example, two text documents opened, each one is focused sometime by hitting the mentioned keys), while in MACs if one has several windows of the same application opened, one is stuck with only one of the said windows.

Any ideas on how I can make Aperture usable again? It's quite important to me.

OS X :: Automator For The UNIX Binaries?

Feb 25, 2010

I'm planning to use my Mac Mini media center to replace an old Ventrilo/TeamSpeak server (Winblows). Since I do not plan to have keyboard/mouse access to the Mini, I need to find an easy way to launch the TeamSpeak and Vent server binaries on boot.Since the media center is set to auto-login and run an Automator workflow that mounts 3 AFP volumes and opens Plex, I would like to add upon my script to launch TeamSpeak and Ventrilo server. However, this becomes problematic when I add a Shell Script action. The script keeps running because it is looking for Terminal to complete its action and quit so it can move on to the next process. If I terminate the script, it kills the Ventrilo Server application.

OS X :: Mac To UNIX FTP Server - Cannot Upload Files

Oct 7, 2009

Two months ago I switched web hosting providers/services from a Linux server to a UNIX server. For the most part the functionality is fine but the ability to upload files using any FTP client is near impossible. We've tried Fetch (4.x and 5.x) Filezilla, Cyberduck, Dreamweaver, and an old copy of GoLive but it takes 6 minutes or more to upload a 230byte file!. The upload is relatively fast but it hangs up on the exiting handshake, or drops the connection and has to reconnect.

We spoke with Fetch and tested both copies on their UNIX server---no problem. We've tried our other clients on other UNIX, Windows, and Linux servers---no problem. We've had the web host and our service provider look at DNS blocks, etc. and all seems to be fine. Pings and trace routes seem fine. The web host company indicated that they believed that it was an issue with their server but eventually threw up their hands and said that they couldn't figure it out (not Mac friendly I suspect). My questions is two fold:

1) Can anyone give me an idea what IS the problem?
2) Can anyone recommend a good 'Mac-friendly' web hosting service that doesn't have issues with Mac's, will allow installation of a variety of CMS, eCommerce solutions, and of course seamless FTP access with variety of clients.
