  • " You cannot use the application "iTunes" with this version of MAC OS X."

    I am getting the response " You cannot use the application "iTunes" with this version of MAC OS X." How do i get Itunes on my Mac. I tried to download the newest version but it won't let me do that either.

    What operating system version are you using on your Macbook?  If you are still using Tiger 10.4 the new iTunes requires Leopard (10.5) or higher.

    Firefox 4 requires at least OS X 10.5 and an Intel Mac. You can get the latest version of Firefox 3.6 which works on OS X 10.4 from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

  • You cannot use the application "Mail" with this version of Mac OS X

    I get the above message when clicking on "Mail" on my backup drive. Could that be because I did not specifically upgrade my backup drive from Tiger to Leopard?
    Hope this is an easy one to answer. Thanks

    yes, most probably that is an old version of Mail - i.e. Tiger - and is not compatible with Leopard. You would need to replace it with the newer Leopard version of Mail
    hope this helps

  • Cannot use the application "Safari" with Leopard

    When I try to open Safari in my non-admin account I get an error message reading 'You cannot use the application "Safari" with this version of Mac OS X'.
    Bizarrely, if I logon as the admin account it works perfectly.
    I have repaired permissions, run software update, repaired permissions again, logged in as SU and fscked and still the same thing. I discovered that Omni Outliner would open the plist but I don't have the knowledge to interpret that.
    I think I have used Safari on this laptop since upgrading to Leopard. Most of the time I use Firefox so it hasn't been an issue anyway. The really bizarre thing is it works normally in the admin account.
    All suggestions welcome.

    Thanks for that. Tried it to no avail
    I have found out what has gone wrong but I have no idea how.
    I keep all my browsers in a subfolder of the applications folder. I trashed Safari with the intention of downloading a clean version from the Apple website. When I got there I couldn't find a version for OS X (there may be one, it just isn't obvious). So I thought I'd just try Safari one more time from my admin account. Of course the app wasn't in the browser folder. So I went to put it back in the applications folder with the intention of moving it from there to the browsers subfolder.
    But no. There was already a newer version in the applications folder. How did it get there? I have no idea. But it opens. So I've moved it to the browsers subfolder and it still works.
    So problem solved. I don't understand how it happened. And especially why it worked all along in the admin account.
    Thanks to everyone who suggested solutions.

  • You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version OSX

    I just installed 10.5.8 (9L30) via Software Update and now my Mail doesn't work. Instead, I get a dialog box that says "You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac OS X." When I run it out of Terminal from /Applications/Mail.app/Contents/MacOS/Mail it runs fine, even though it is Version 3.5 (which is what shows up when I do Get Info on the Mail application in the Applications folder). This is really poor, Apple. This is basic stuff -when you upgrade the OS you have to make sure all the Apps work. How are you going to fix this?

    Apple obviously are stupid enough to release an update that broke mail..
    Then how do you explain all the people saying they've had no problems with the update? (Oh, and "Apple are"???)
    Not everyone had the problem. Good for them. More than one person had the problem - and perhaps even more will experience it. That means there is a hole in the update process - i.e. something does not work properly in all situations. Apple is not God - they stuff up sometimes, innit? Stop defending them.
    No matter whether you use a Mac or Windows machine, you need to do some basic maintenance from time to time to keep things working smoothly. Macs, overall, tend to need less, but you still need to check the hard drive from time to time, and you definitely never want to install an OS update if there's a chance you've got hard drive problems.
    So if that's the case, why design an "automatic" Software Update utility that does not do a check of HD integrity if it is so vital to do such a check before installing an OS upgrade? Does that make any sense? Where do Apple recommend such a check prior to installing an OS upgrade? It's not immediately obvious do the average user. Apple have gone out of their way to make claims like "you never have to defrag a Mac". They don't mention anything about HD checks. If it's so fundamental, why not? Is it unreasonable to think that a company that prides itself on good design would think of this?
    Thank you for the link for the consolidated update. That fixed it - except that it should have worked first go from the auto updater.

  • "You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version...

    I recently needed to replace my hard drive and now when I try to open the Mail application I get the following message: "You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac OS X."
    Any help is appreciated.

    ANSWERING MY OWN POST:
    I have tried reinstalling Mail from my Snow Leopard upgrade disk directly and tried it using Pacifist. Neither worked because both simply reinstalled version 4.0. Fortunately, I have a MacBook Pro and it has version 4.1. I copied this directly, which was not ideal (it was quite confused about my mailboxes), but it worked.
    The problem is that +Software Update+ did not detect the old version of Mail and Apple does not provide a direct way (that I could find) of downloading the latest version. Each time I downloaded Mail from Apple, it was version 4.0.

  • You cannot use this version of the application iCa with this version of Mac OS x

    Bought a macbook pro from a friend- running 10.5.8. Could not find iCal in the Apps folder. Researched on line and it sounded like I needed to reinstall it from the disk. I did from the original os x disk and when I tried to open it, received the following message:
    you cannot use this version of the application iCa with this version of Mac OS x
    I have two disk for version 10.2. Neither disk offers "optional installs" but the second has "AdditionalApplications.pkg" but doen not install iCal at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. That brings up a whole new question- can I run 10.6 on my macbook? The specs are below:
    Model Name:
    MacBook Pro 15"
      Model Identifier:
    MacBookPro1,1
      Processor Name:
    Intel Core Duo
      Processor Speed:
    2 GHz
      Number Of Processors:
    1
      Total Number Of Cores:
    2
      L2 Cache:
    2 MB
      Memory:
    2 GB
    Was told at Apple Store that it would run terribly slow.

  • 'You cannot use the application ical.app with this version of Mac OS X'

    When I first upgraded to 10.5 ical and calculator both crashed when starting and now after upgrading to 10.5.1 I get the following message - 'You cannot use the application ical.app with this version of Mac OS X'
    This is only on my G4 powermac. No problem with Intel MacBook.

    Are you, by any chance, one of "those people" that move applications to something other than the default location?
    I know I am.
    When I upgraded, I saw the same problem - I had moved iCal (among others) outside of "applications" to something like "Applications/Business Apps"
    The version in "Business Apps" was the Tiger version, and it wouldn't run. However, the Leopard version (Installed to /Applications) worked fine.
    So, I deleted the "Tiger" version, moved the iCal to where I wanted it, and all was well.
    In a similar note, I put a number of iLive apps in a different folder -- and OS X software update stopped finding updates for those apps. I had to move them back to /Applications in order to get OS X software update to run them.

  • You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version of Ma

    My hardrive died so I got it replaced and since I bought my macbook on ebay I have no Installation discs so got a friend to install leopard - everything so far seems ok but when I click Mail this comes up -'You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac OS X.'. Any ideas? Ive ran software update and its all up to scratch..

    Greetings,
    You seem to have a conflict somewhere, and it looks like you have a prior version of Mail that doesn't work with Leopard, along with the Leopard version of Mail. What version was on the Mac when you bought it, and where did the version of Leopard come from, exactly (was it a retail boxed version, or a version that shipped with another model of laptop)? Be very specific, as it does make a difference.

  • 10.5.2: You cannot use the application "System preferences.app" with...

    Hello
    after (successfully) updating from 10.5.1 to 10.5.2, the System Preferences.app cannot be started. Either the application does not start (a silent error) or there is a message "You cannot use the application "System preferences.app" with this version of MacOS X." The version is 10.5.2, according to "About this Mac", while the application version is 3.5. The same happens when I attempt to open "Time machine preferences" using the new menu/icon on the bar.
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Marinho.

    Thanks, I did that, but it didn't solve the problem.
    By the way, the application version (of System preferences.app) remained the same (old one). Then I removed the application to Trash (meaning to restore it later if required) and applied the update again (and a third time), but then a new System preferences.app was not installed and the older one has disappeared from the trash! What a mess this update turns out to be...

  • You cannot use the application "System Preferences" with this version OS X

    You cannot use the application “System Preferences” with this version of Mac OS X.
    I received this error message when trying to run System Preferences (SP) for the first time after running the 10.5.1 update (from the download, not software update). After the update, I repaired permissions. Did another restart. Same.
    I reinstalled 10.5.1 update. Same message. Logged in as another user. No change.
    I removed the com.apple.systempreferences.plist from ~/library/preferences. No change, and it did not re-create the .plist file.
    Any ideas? No one else seems to be having this problem as far as I can tell.
    dkrockville

    I have had this problem with many applications after updating to 10.5.1, including
    System Preferences, Calculator, Preview. Tried repairing permissions, and other tips from this thread. The strange thing is, the actual Leopard applications seem to have actually vanished? I don't know if this is anything to do with Time Machine; Anyway, My fix was:
    Download Pacifist (if you don't already have it), locate the apps that you're having problems with on the Leopard install DVD, and copy them to the Applications Folder (Click on 'Replace Bundle')
    Problem Solved for Me!
    Hope this Helps!
