Software :: Update Safari 4.1.2 To Newer Version?
I tried the new version (or what is supposed to be the new version of Safari for Tiger, but it loads as Safari 4.1 Tiger, and will not install because it says there is a newer version installed already. What is Apple doing? Did they simply rename version 4.1 as 4.1.2 and expect it to install?

Software :: Cannot Download As Newer Version Installed?
I have a MacBook, 2,1 OS X 10.4.11 with all the software updates.

When I try to install X11 it says "cannot download as newer version installed".

I have downloaded Gimp, dragged it over to "Applications" and the installation asks for X11 "where is X11?" and I cannot find it!

What do I have to do?

Software :: When I Download It, It Says There Is Already A Newer Version Installed?
I've been a Mac user for a few years now, and really love the apps on the Mac, and 99% of the time, never need anything thats on Windows. However, the time has come that I need to open a windows app via Darwin. Its asking me to install - which I've tried to do, but when I download it, it says there is already a newer version installed. I've never heard of, let alone installed before, so this confused me a little.

I've come onto these forums, and had a little search, to which I found out that you need to do something with the original OS disks to install via the install disk. I no longer have the install disks - I moved house 6 months ago, and had 3 boxes lost in transit, (Including my PS3, nearly 50 games a DVD player and all CD's / DVD's ) - and have never recovered them.

Is there any other way I can get this app to install?

OS X Tiger :: Difference Between 10.2 Disk Utility And Newer 10.4 Version?
I can't find my installation disks for 10.4. The most recent one I can find is 10.2. I ran verify disk on Onyx and it told me the disk needed repair and that I needed to run disk utility from the cd.

1. is there any difference between the 10.2 disk utility and the newer 10.4 version that might corrupt the system?

2. I ran multiple tests with Tech tool pro and passed everything. Is there something Disk Utility does that tech tool pro isn't doing?

Final Cut Pro :: Studio Install Saying Newer Version On Computer?
I have the OEM version of Final Cut Studio 6. My Imac that I bought used had a bootleg version of FCS 3. I have already opened the Applications folder and dragged the Final Cut Pro to the trash and I have dragged everything else that was related to FCS 3 to the trash.

When I try a clean install of FCS2 the Final Cut Pro 6 is grayed out. When I put the mouse pointer over that it says TT_NEWERALREADYINSTALLED. There must be some remnants of the FCS3 files still there. How can I find them and get rid of them? And yes my system specs exceed the minimum requirement.

Snow Leopard :: Safari Cannot Be Installed On This Disk
When I try to install Safari, at the "Select a Destination" step it says: "Safari can't be installed on this disk. This update requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or newer". I installed Snow Leopard last night. The old Safari browser couldn't be opened at all; I have since disposed of it in the trash. I have plenty of GB's of storage space available.

Snow Leopard :: Safari Cannot Be Installed On This Disk
I installed a plugin for safari and later decided I didn't need it and attempted to uninstall it. Unfortunately the plugin was still active and I couldn't understand what the problem was. I decided to try uninstalling & reinstalling Safari 4. I uninstalled it using AppZapper. When I tried to reinstall it by downloading the DMG from Apple's site I noticed it said "Safari for Leopard" (not snow leopard). I decided to try it anyway but it didn't work. When it asked me to select a destination it says, "Safari can't be installed on this disk. This update requires Mac OS X 5.8 or newer". Is there any simpler way to get Safari back without doing an archive and install?

Mac Safari :: Another Version 5 Install Failure And Startup
I just ran Software Update on my iMac (5,1) and installed Safari 5. After being asked to restart, the machine shut down and began to restart. It ran through a short install period with a status bar and then on to the twirling loading icon. That's where it stops, every time. I've tried clearing the PRAM and starting in Safe Mode but it always results in this same startup scheme. The twirling loading icon ran for over four hours on the first reboot attempt; subsequent attempts were anywhere from a few minutes to an hour with the same failure. Through the miracle of Google, I found a thread, I booted from my Snow Leopard DVD, Ran Disk Utility, verified the disk, then attempted to repair it. The disk passes the SMART check, so I'm assuming that it is at least in good health hardware-wise.

The errors I'm getting: Invalid leaf record count (should be 817 instead of 818). Checking catalog file: invalid sibling link. Rebuilding catalog b-tree: Volume repair complete. Updating boot support partitions for the volume as required. Error: Disk utility can't repair this disk. This then leads to the awesomely-helpful, "Disk Utility stopped repairing "Macintosh HD". Disk utility can't repair this disk. Back up as many of your files as possible, reformat the disk, and restore your backed-up files." I am now going to be the world's most dyed-in-the-wool Firefox user by the time this is over. DiskWarrior time? I can't even get it to boot to single-user mode. Before I reformat the disk, if there is a log I can recover from it.

Mac Safari :: Version 5 Install - Computer Freezes At Desktop Picture
I installed Safari 5 from software update and now when it boots up, I don't see an Apple logo and it freezes at the aurora borealis desktop picture. Nothing else seems to load. I can tell by pressing enter, tab, and typing that something is going on, but I can't get beyond that point. I have multiple users so I should be seeing a login screen. I tried a safe boot and it stopped at the grey screen and then my processor started to overwork and the fans went to full blast.

Mac Safari :: Version 5 Crashes Every Time I Try To Launch It (just Updated From Safari 4)
I read many posts and tried many of the work around suggested but unfortunately nothing seems to work.

I created a new log in profile as well and it does not solve the problem.

Since I updated from Safari 4 to Safari 5, every time I try to launch the app, only the top bar loads. When I try to open a window, it crashes.

OS X Leopard :: Hit The Install Button And Installed An Older Version Over The Existing SSW?
Recently I was repairing permissions on the most current version of 10.5 using an older version of OSX (I know, a stupid thing to do). I left the room as the repairs were being made and unfortunately, someone else hit the install button and installed an older version over the existing SSW. I thought I lost everything until I saw the previous system folder. All of the applications I thought were gone are still there. Is there a way to change back to the previous system and retain my apps?

Mac Safari :: Unable To Install / Safari Doesn't Show After Installation
I want to try out the new Safari. So I went to and downloaded the package, ran installation and then rebooted the Mac. As before, when I tried to check out Safari 4, Safari again doesn't show after installation. As it's just the same specifics can be re-read in the thread 'Safari doesn't show after installation' somewhen older. But if someone can help I happily share details again. Only contents on the Mac named 'safari' is the .dmg I used, some metadata and Microsoft Office stuff. And I tried to install more than once.

Many extensions on cannot be installed.However, extensions that I installed before, no problem, such as AdBlock, Bing, Echofon. Others, will not install, it will be stuck at installing. And Safari may lose response after a while. I initially noticed that if I try to install YouTube5 which I downloaded myself, Safari will immediately lose response.

Tried solutions:

- Reset Safari
- Run OnyX
- Repair disk permissions
- Deleting all the extensions; extensions I installed before will install, others won't
- Deleting Clicktoflash and Glims

OS X Leopard :: Must Upgrade To Newer Version Of Application
For a while now, when I startup my MacBook Pro, after startup I get a window with the following message: "You must upgrade to a newer version of this application. The version of the database on the server is newer than the version of the database supported by this application. Please upgrade to a newer version and try again." Then it has a Quit button.

I have reinstalled many apps looking for the culprit but haven't found anything. I have also turned off all of my "start at login" apps. But still, i get this warning immediately after startup, when nothing is running. I downloaded an Antivirus software and ran it but it did not help.

OS X :: FileMaker II Database Convert To Newer Version
I have an important database created on my Mac using an old version of Filemaker II. (Version 1.1v2 1989) Since I have gone to OSX, the old program will not work on my newer Intel Mac. I am trying to find out how to convert the old files to a newer version of FileMaker that will allow me to read and add to the file.

I have a version 6.0 and 9.0 of Filemaker Pro, but neither will allow me to read the old database. Might have to step up from version to version and convert. We are at wits end and desperately need some expert help! Can anyone tell me how to do this. Files are a listing of 20+ years of articles and photos connected with a small magazine my wife and I publish.

OS X Tiger :: Newer Version Of Firefox Compatible?
I still have my older Mac OsXv10.4 Tiger software. I wasn't exactly happy with Safari browser as it would block many sites and were considered incompatible so I downloaded the free Firefox browser (the 2.0 version) of which I still have. I'm aware that there is a much newer version and would like to download that, but I've heard a lot of people saying they have been having severe problems with it, but then they have PCs and not Macs. So my question is for you Mac users that use Firefox, have you had major problems with the newer version? I'm real hesitant to download if I'm going to have the same problem PC users are constantly crashing. Also would my old Tiger software be compatible? I don't want to upgrade to Leopard.
