OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Get Any Newly-installed Application To Launch

Apr 20, 2012

So everything installed on my Lion iMac works absolutely fine. However, I recently tried to re-install Appfresh (an application updater), so I used Appcleaner to uninstall it, grabbed a new download, dragged it to Applications as normal, double-clicked it.. nothing. The icon sits in my dock, and the indicator pulses, continuously, but the application never appears. It's not in the Force Quit menu, and Activity Monitor has no trace of it either. 

I thought, okay, something up with Appfresh. But I've since tried a couple of other apps, and a game (Botanicula), and the exact same thing happens. I've done nothing new in the way I've installed them, opened their .dmg files, and dragged the application into Applications, completely normally, but they all do the "sit in the dock and nothing else" thing. If I left-click them once in the dock, they vanish, and that's all I hear of them. I've tried Disk Utility to do both verify and repair permissions to both the disk and the partition, but that hasn't solved the problem. I'm running the latest 10.7.3 with all patches to remove Flashback, etc.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Newly Installed Apps Not Launching

Mar 23, 2012

I notice that any new apps I try and install aren't launching.I tried to install the 30 day trial of Textmate and when clicking on App in Applications folder the icon just bounces on the dock permenantly.Clicking it again makes it disapear form the dock. I then tried to install BetterTouchTool and when I click on that absolutely nothing happens.Any apps installed prior open up fine.I did a Repair Disk and Disk Permissions, but nothing.I know it may be a loaded question potentially based on other apps I have installed, but hoping someone else has encountered and can at least point me on the right track.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Stop It From Opening Old Docs When Launch An Application?

Apr 16, 2012

How the heck to I stop Lion from launching old docs when I open a new doc in MS Word, Excel, Preview, etc? I HATE this feature. Twice now I've edited the wrong document because when I click on a new Word doc, one that I worked on last automatic pops up on top of it. This is a ridiculous feature! Also, I don't need photos that I looked at yesterday magically opening when I open a new photo in Preview. That can be embarrassing if is someone is looking over my shoulder, if you know what I mean. Do I need to make sure I close all old docs instead of just quitting. Is there a way to just turn this frustrating auto open feature off?

Hardware :: How To Access Newly Installed HD

Nov 15, 2008

The 160GB HD on my 2x2GB G5 has only got 7.9GB left due to memory intensive software: FCP, Logic 8 etc. I therefore installed a 2nd drive, a 500GB HD, bought from an Apple store. Its icon sits on the desktop, so everything is fine.

I am self-taught with everything computer and usually find answers in my computer books, but not this time.
How can I now utilize the new 500GB disk as my working disc?/Startup disc? I believe, the OS + other software must be installed on the new drive, or can it be transferred from the nearly depleted 160GB drive. I do not have much content in photos or other files on this drive, its mainly software.

I edit FCP on external LaCie drives (300+500GB)The newly installed disc does not show up on in preferences/startup disc panel, probably because it does not contain the OS.

Mac Pro :: Using Newly Installed Radeon 4870

Jun 10, 2009

I bought the PC version of the ATI Radeon HD 4870 and flashed it with the mac ROM. Everything went fine. I then moved the original card to slot 2 and put the new ATI card into slot one. I connected the monitor to the new ATI card and booted up. I get the apple logo, but after that, my monitor loses signal. If i plug the monitor into the original card (which is now in slot 2), it works fine. The desktop shows up. Any ideas on what is going on here? Is there anyway to check what hardware is installed in the computer? Any utilities?

MacBook :: Newly Installed HDD Not Recognized

Aug 5, 2009

I have the 13" MacBook Unibody with the 250 GB HDD. I wanted to replace that with my Seagate Freeagent Go 500 GB external HDD. I took off the enclosure and replaced the 250 gb with the 500 gb but the computer won't recognize the new 500gb HDD. All I get is a blinking question mark during start up which I know stands for HDD issues. The 500 gb HDD is working fine btw, I tested it after I took it out of the enclosure.It is a Serial ATA 2,5" and works just fine. Is the Macbook 13" Unibody not supporting 500 gb HDDs maybe? I checked the specs for the MacBook Pro 13" which is supposed to be the same as the one I have and it does say that it supports 500gb HDD.

Software :: Where Is Newly Installed MS Messenger Hiding?

Feb 22, 2006

I just installed Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac on an iBook with a G3, 500 Mz processor and 384 MB RAM running OS 10.3.9. One of the components was MSN Messenger version 4. When I opened it, it said a newer version was available so I downloaded and installed version 5 for Mac. But the icon in the dock continued to be for version 4 and each time I clicked on it I was prompted to once more download the newer version.

I did this several times, then deleted the version four from the applications and from the dock before reinstalling the version five. This time the messenger is on the computer but is not in the applications nor in the dock. Where is it so I can drag its icon to the dock? I know it is on the computer because when I clicked on recent items it opened, and also when I reinstalled again it opened, but I can't find where it is hiding.

Windows On Mac :: Newly Installed 7 Taking Up Too Much Space?

Nov 12, 2010

So I just installed windows 7 x64 (bootcamp) on my iMac 27" mid 2010.

It seems to be taking up 11 GB more than there really is on the partition.

Partition size: 33 GB
Used space: 22 GB (in reality 11 GB)
Free space: 11 GB (in reality 22 GB)

I know for a fact that a newly installed windows 7 is not this huge.

Also I selected all the folders and checked the size and it simply doesn't match what the Drive Properties tells me.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Prevent Previously Open Windows From Automatically Opening On Application Launch (e.g. Pages, Safari)?

Jun 8, 2012

Whenever I launch Pages, the application opens pretty much all the documents I've worked on.  I take care to close all the windows, hoping that they won't launch again next time I start the application, yet they do.  I can't find a setting in the preferences or Settings to disable this behavior.

OS X :: Moved Installed Programs In Newly Created Folders?

Jan 17, 2010

Newbie from windows to Mac SL. I download two programs for my Cannon scanner and found them installed in Applications. I created a new folder called Cannon and moved both programs into it. In the folder, there is now a file called "Open in Finder" as well which I did not add.

1. Is it ok to move files into a new folder this way?
2. Is it normal to have "Open in Finder" also inserted in the folder?

Reason I am asking is, when I initially run the scanner program I get this multiple colour ball momentarily. It is almost as if the OS is looking for the location of the scanner program - similar to an hour glass in windows. Therefore, should I delete the folder I created and reinstall the scanner programs? If so, should I delete the programs first, then the folder, or go ahead and delete the folder with the programs in it?

Software :: Selecting Newly Installed Print Driver?

Nov 19, 2009

First, I'm a noob on MACs so forgive the nooby nature of the question.

I'm setting up a printer on a Macbook to use a printer shared from Windows 7. Followed the tutorials I found for the network side of things and that seems to be fine (Mac send unprintable files to the Windows print queue).

The problem is the print driver on the Mac. The printer is a HP PSC 1315. It's not on the list when you Select Drivers during printer setup and even after loading the HP 111 updated, still no joy.

I downloaded the 1315-specific driver package and ran the installation but I have no idea how to find the driver to use during printer setup.

MacBook :: Unable To Recognize Newly Installed Optical Drive

Jun 24, 2009

So, I have a 13" white MacBook that is about three years old. Recently, the Combo Drive stopped reading CD-Rs (possibly all discs in general, but I only ever use it to burn CDs, so I wouldn't have ever known), so I decided to try to install a new Super Drive myself.

Following a guide on [URL], I installed the new drive, but when I turned my computer back on, it was not recognizing the drive at all. System Profiler was saying "This system does not contain any ATA devices. If you have any ATA devices installed, check that they are connected and powered on." I was then able to reinstall my old Combo Drive, which my computer recognized immediately. Thinking that I may have just not connected something tightly the first time, I tried a second time. Same thing happened.

So, my question is, is there anything I may be missing or does this definitely mean the drive is defective? I just want to make sure I'm not sending back a functional drive before I go ahead and do so.

I have also reinsalled the VirtualBox but it didn't work.

Intel Mac :: Unable To Install Office 2011 On Newly Installed HD

I had to replace a dead hard drive on my old 2007 iMac. Now I am unable to install Office 2011 on an iMac that had this version of office before the old HD died. I know there are restrictions on the number of installations. Must I purchase Office 2011 again or is there another legal option?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Populate Newly Installed ITunes And IPhoto With The Imported Data Stored Under The 'old' Username?

Jun 9, 2012

My MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8) was going slow. I decided to reinstall OSX. All my data was backed up to my compatible external HD. I then erased my MacBook HD, and reinstalled OSX off the install disc and bundled applications disc.  I went through the steps to set up the administrator account, and did all the other things in the instal process.  I then did all necessary software updates. When all that was complete, I connected my external HS and opened migration assistant, and imported all the data from the latest backup.  I now find that all my backed up data from before is under a different user account - named as in the old OSX set up. How do I populate my newly installed iTunes and iPhoto with the imported data stored under the 'old' username? Shouldn't this have happened automatically?

Windows On Mac :: Vista Installation On Newly Installed Drive - Need Step By Step Guide

May 23, 2009

I am about to install a new (blank) hard drive to my existing 2009 Mac Pro. The Drive will then be used solely for windows (won't be a partition, but a stand alone drive, separate from my other drives which are Raid).

On the apple web site, it says that the OSX software installed will provide drivers etc. Does that mean that I should:

1) connect the drive
2) format the drive under OSX
3) run the bootcamp assist...

OS X :: Open A New Window On Application Launch?

Nov 27, 2007

For example, (when Safari or Terminal application is already launched) pressing the dock icon or launching from quicksilver brings the window to the front (or moves to a specific space where the window is in).

Is it possible to modify this behavior to opening a new window? By clicking the dock icon (or some sequence of keyboard shortcuts) I want to open a new window of safari or terminal. Furthermore, it would be great if
this can be done to the current 'space'.

Is there a simple way of doing this?

Software :: Using Keyboard Shortcut To Launch Application?

Feb 20, 2006

I'm OS X 10.4.4. G4 15". I wanna launch applications just by pressing a function key. Used to do this with system 9. Mac help seems to imply I can't. Note: You can create keyboard shortcuts only for existing menu commands. You cannot define keyboard shortcuts for general purpose tasks such as opening an application or switching between applications. Am I slow, or is this saying I can't "quick launch" an app with a press of one button? Is this really true? Is there no "one touch" way to launch stuff? (And not on startup - I've got that figured out.)
