A lot of people have been affected by the problem - the change to Lion OSX has left them stranded because Power PC Applications are no longer supported. I don't understand firstly why Apple has done this. There are thousands of software programs in use by their customers and suddenly these don't work.† As these are programs used by students, teachers, employers and employees this seems quite senseless to leave everyone high and dry.
I am trying to download a program for a online course that says it is mac compatable with a Macintosh OSX 10.2.8 or higher, but when i run the application it says that Mac is no longer compatible with PowerPC applications. How can I run this program?
Recently my MacPro has been giving multiple errors that I can't open a particular application because PowerPC application are no longer supported.¬† It references an application that I don't have on my computer and I'm not trying to open.¬† I keeps listing the error over and over.¬† Last night it listed it 88 times before I woke up this morning.¬† They list one on top of the other running down from the middle of the screen to the right lower corner and then pile up there.¬† I don't know what to do other than erase the drive and reformat and I really don't want to do that.¬† I'm attaching a screenshot. ¬†
This shot shows 8 repeats in about 4 hours one day last week.¬† This started about 3 months after I installed Lion, and I haven't installed anything else since I upgraded to Lion.¬† ¬†

I am trying to back-up my computer to my external hard drive and a box is popping up saying "You can't open the application WD Backup.app because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."¬† What does this mean? I have updated my system to Lion since my last back-up. What do I need to do?
Upgraded my MacPro 2 x 3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon to Lion so that I can take advantage of icloud functions that apparently won't work with my present OS. I did a clean install of the Lion OS, and began to selectively reinstall application programs. I inserted the install disc for my Logic Studio Application, an application which was not cheap, and I am met with the above message when I try to install the software. (Actually, "you can't open the application LogicStudio.mpkg because powerpc applications are no longer supported")Under the system requirements, I find my machine within the guidelines. Also, this software worked fine on this mac machine when I was running the Leopard OS. What is "PC" about my Dual Intel processors?
After OS Lion installation pre migration to iCloud, I can't access Word or Excel - greyed out no entry sign and error message when try to open. "You can't open the application Microsoft Word because PowerPC applications are no longer supported". Didn't see any warning of this pre-installation. Didn't see any warning of this pre-installation. I paid for these two softwares and use them daily on my iMac. Need an urgent fix to access previous files. Any solutions to install a fix perhaps, and then re-install the software from my back up? Plus any Apple solutions to no longer having iWeb?
I recently purchased SAT/PSAT/ACT preparation material for my daughter from Kaplan. I could not run the software on OS X Lion that I have. The error message I get is - " PowerPC applications are no longer supported". Does any one know what the solution is?

I just upgraded to OS X Lion 10.7.3 and now it's telling me I can't open the application Quicken anymore, because PowerPC applications are no longer supported!¬† I sincerely hope someone knows how to resolve this.¬† I'm in big trouble!¬†I get the same message when I try to open Excel, Word, and a game called Mah Jong.
After install of OSX Lion (from Snow Leopard). I receive every 10 seconds a message:†"Cannot open program ExpressAccountsAgent, because PowerPC-programs are no longer supported". I deinstalled this program with Mackeeper, without result.†The message shows every 10 seconds.†Is it possible to block this message?
I attempted to install a driver for my external hard drive. It was apparently the wrong thing to do, I keep getting pop ups that it's not supported. I removed the driver but it's still giving me pop ups!
