Intel Mac :: Programs Quitting Unexpectedly Or Will Not Open

Mar 29, 2012

This week I have several programs that are quitting unexpectedly, or will not open all of a sudden. Photoshop CS, office 2004, and even the Appleworks programs. They all refuse to open. I uninstalled PS and the office products, and then tried to reinstall and couldn't even do that from the install disk. I did do a disk repair scan, but it said there was nothing wrong with the disk.And I'm getting some SymSecondary launch(whatever that is) failure as well.

MacBook :: Unable To Open Programs - Programs Are Not Displaying

Mar 25, 2010

I have a question about using my new samsung tv as a monitor for my macbook. I have all the cables and such and my TV reads the computer. It actually shows the desktop background, mouse, and the toolbar on the tv...
BUT....when i try and open a program such as safari or itunes it does not display the program on the monitor but rather on my macbook screen. It shows the program open on the tv monitor but it shoots off the screen and then opens on the macbook screen.

Also the mouse disappears from the tv monitor screen on the left side only, and when it does it becomes visible back on the macbook screen! Any tips or suggestions on how to get the programs to show up on the monitor instead of the macbook screen?

MacBook Air :: How To Stop Start Up Programs From Opening

May 29, 2012

I am getting a little frustrated. Everytime I start my computer Word, Excel and other programs open. I have tried the following which hasn't helped. 

1. I went into system preferences into User/Groups, logins and deleted all items.  

2. Hovered over the word in the menu bar at the bottom of the screen, clicked options, unchecked open at login. (I have been closing down the application before loging off)   

Other than that I am not sure how to stop these from opening.

OS X :: How To Open Programs In The Background

Jul 10, 2010

I have spaces enabled and most apps are set to a specific screen (iTunes in 2, Mail in 3, etc.) but when I'm in space 1 and I want to open itunes, I click the icon and it pulls me into space 2, as opposed to leaving me in space 1.

Is there any way to set the apps to just open in the background without becoming the active app, thus pulling me into a different screen.

Feb 10, 2012

I recently replaced my hard drive and still have the old one with all my Adobe applications. Both hard drives have the same OS and the applications worked on the old one until I replaced it.

I tried to reinstall the Adobe applications and before I can I get the message:

"Adobe Illustrator 13.0.0 [k] (Universal) cannot be opened because of a problem."

without getting the option of installing an update. I also tried to copy the programs from the Old to the New HD with no luck

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Add Programs To Open With Menu

Mar 30, 2012

Is there a way to add programs to the Open With Menu.For example, when you right click on a file you can choose to open it with the default application by selecting Open, or choose other programs to open it with by selecting Open With.Only a few of the programs that can open the files are listed.Is there a way to add programs that I use to list in that list.Right now, everytime I want to open something in a program that is not listed I have to go to Other... and find it in the Application folder. Which is not too convenient.Many programs that I use to open files are not listed for many types of file types, I open them frequently using the Open... window, and I was hoping that Mac would learn to add them, but it did not.

For example, I have VMWare with Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010 in it, my default application for WORD documents is Word for Mac 2011, but occasionally I need to open it in Word 2010 in Windows (Certain features that are missing in Mac Word), and I have to browse to fin the Word 2010 Application from the Application Folder.Another example is a program (from the App Store) called ResizeIt (which resizes photos), I have to browse for it everytime even though it is an application just for images.So, is there a way to edit the Open With Menu for specific file types to include these programs that I use, or do I have to keep browsing to the Application folder and finding it there?

Applications :: Photoshop / Office Programs Do Not Open?

May 17, 2009

I have Photoshop CS and microsoft office for my macbook pro with 10.5.6.

the programs were working fine untill about a week when my computer crashed during an update to 10.5.6. I had to reset the NRAM and PRAM, and then it started up working fine. now when i attempt to open and office program or photoshop, they dont open and it says it has closed unexpectedly.
Also, when i try to reinstal it from the disk, the intallation app closes unexpectedly as well.

Since the crash, safari and firefox open, but i have to reset and relaunch it every time.

This happened to me once before, but i ended up bringing my computer into the mac store and hey fixed it, but i am wondering if there is a way i can do it without having to bring it and not have my computer for a day.

OS X :: After Battery Ran Out/ No Dock Can't Open Programs And Safari

Sep 25, 2009

my macbook (running Tiger) ran out of battery before it was able to shut itself down properly. Upon reboot (and ever since) Safari has been unable to open and there is no dock. I've tried installing firefox but it won't install, and many programs won't launch. I'm assuming something happened when the battery ran out, but I can't seem to fix it. Disk Utility won't work, AppleJack won't install,

I've restarted several times, tried to update.. everything, but nothing seems to work.

I've attached a screenshot of the finder window.. notice how it is missing all the stuff in the left hand column, the dock, and the arrows
