    Upgrading to Snow Leopard
    You must purchase Snow Leopard through the Apple Store: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Apple Store (U.S.). The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will be sent physical media by mail after placing your order.
    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store. Access to the App Store enables you to download Mountain Lion if your computer meets the requirements.
         Snow Leopard General Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel processor
           2. 1GB of memory
           3. 5GB of available disk space
           4. DVD drive for installation
           5. Some features require a compatible Internet service provider;
               fees may apply.
           6. Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and
               terms apply.

  • I have a MacBook pro version 10.6.7 with snow leopard. After an scheduled software upgrade I could not open Quicken (It said it could not open the files). Now I can only open it if I have my external drive on. Can you help?

    I have a MacBook pro version 10.6.7 with snow leopard. After an scheduled software upgrade I could not open Quicken (It said it could not open the files). Now I can only open it if I have my external drive on. Can you help?
    All the information that I had input on Quicken is gone. I have to have the external hard drive that I use to back up to be able to use quicken now. It is as if it was erased from the laptop hardrive

    Try repairing permissions. My favorite way is with a utility called AppleJack. Info and download here. It's free. It only works when you boot in Single User Mode. When restarting or booting, hold down the Command key and S keys.
    You will get a very different startup screen that looks like the Terminal app has hijacked the screen. Just let the lines of text scroll by. When that happens you will get a text entry prompt. Type in "AppleJack" without the quotation marks.
    A DOS looking menu will appear. Choose 1 or d to run Disk Repair. If you get a message that Disk Repair found and corrected errors, run it again. Repeat until you get the "your disk appears to be ok" message. This rarely happens with my experience, though. This does the same thing as as booting from an external drive and running Disk Utility's repair. Only, no external drive is required!
    Next, choose 2 or p to repair disk permissions. This will take a little while. AppleJack warns that it will take up to an half hour to run repair permissions. It'n never taken more than about ten minutes for my MacBook Pro.
    As permissions are repaired, you will see each repair scroll on the screen. When done, the menu returns, choose q to quit. Then at the prompt, enter "exit" without the quotes. Your MacBook Pro should restart into Mac OS normally after this.
    Hope this helps.

  • I have 2 Macbook Pros running 10.6! One was my sales guy and I would like to transfer my contents to his whilst retaining all his information?

    Hi Guy's,
    I have run Mac for the last 10 years! I am sick to the back teeth of them now! I am seriously considering going back to Bill......
    I have two Macbook pro's, they are company Macs and I own them. My sales guy has left tthe company and his Mac was a couple of years younger than
    mine and a larger memory faster processor etc...
    I would like to transfer all of my contents to the younger version, Iphotos, itunes, apps, docs, mail and all? Whilst retaining all of the info still on the newer version. I have backed up onto a 1Tb hard drive (iomega) and thats where the trouble has started.......
    It will not let me transfer across, you know the story......different user, keychain, system already exists etc etc.
    Is there an easy way of having one access (without it keeping the original user hidden away to P*ss you off from time to time) i don't want to see his name appear now or in the future, just my name, on my Macs, that I bought with, my money.........
    Sorry, but really annoyed at the minute....
    PJ

    Well there is Migration Assistant in the Utilities folder and that's designed to migrate user accounts from a same or older machine to a newer one. But that comes later.
    You want to retain the previous owners data but want to delete his name from the machine, so your going to need to have Admin access on that newer machine or access to his account to get the data off the machine first to a external drive by copying the users folders (music, pictures, movies, documents etc.)
    To get the old user off the machine unfortunalty requires wiping the entire drive of all data, including programs installed and the operating system and all accounts, then installing OS X fresh again and setting it up like a brand new machine.
    Apple squirrels the original user name all over the machine, and the only way to get rid of it all is to wipe the drive completely.
    Once OS X is reinstalled, and you go through the setup process, the Setup Assistant will transfer the User account of the older machine to the newer one via Firewire Target Disk Mode, or via a external TimeMachine drive made on the older machine. Then you can transfer the user data from the backup drive you made earlier.

    If this is all too much for you to grasp at this time, just take the machine's to a local Mac software service and they will do it all for you.

  • How to stop an error message that pops up every time I open Safari. It reads...Safari 5.1 (v6534.50) has not been tested with the plugin PithHelmet .As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer.

    How do I stop this error message from popping up every time I start up Safari ?
    Error message reads...
    Safari 5.1 (v6534.50) has not been tested with the plugin Pithhelmet 3.0b6 (v 3006)
    As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer.
    I have removed every trace of Pithhelmet, (via spotlight)
    Trashed the preferences for Safari, restarted computer to no avail.
    It just  keeps keepin on.
    Thanks

    In the past I was able to bypass the message by editing the Info.plist file and updating the MaxBundleVersion variable, but not so this time around. As of today the developer seems to indicate there's no immediate fix becuase of how Safari 5.1 handles multiprocess page rendering. Probably best to stay tuned to Mike's website for now.

  • I am trying to install a free app but when I enter my apple ID in the itunes and apps in the settings, it says "this apple id has not been used in the itunes store". And it won't enter my apple id and I can't install the app What can I do about this?

    Why is my iphone does not accept my apple ID when entered in itunes and apps in settings?

    Is this a new Apple iD? If it is, and you have already set it up, then you have two options:
    1.     Temporarily put a Credit Card or Gift Card on the account to download the free app. If you put a credit card, then once you have downloaded the app, you should be able to go into your Account preferences and change the payment option to = None.
    2.     You can download the fee App, and then set up a new Apple ID.

  • My Macbook Pro 5.5 was slow.  I backed up word and  my photos and wiped it clean.  I reinstalled  Snow leopard but my IPHOTO ILIFE is missing.  I transferred word documents over and photo library but can't find IPHOTO anywhere.  How do i get it back?

    Hi All,
    I have a Macbook Pro, 5,5.  It's a few years old and was running slow.  My son backed up my Microsoft Office documents and my photos onto a thumb drive and ran 'wiped my computer clean'...using a disc that came with my computer.  (I am NOT computer savy at all).
    I was able to reinstall the Mac OS X install DVD that came with my Mac, but IPHOTO, ILIFE did not reinstall.  I transferred the word documents successfully, and my photos transferred to an icon on a 'library' on the desktop, but I can't use.  How do i get IPHOTO back?
    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you so much for responding.  I will look for the other disks.
    One more question - I initially decided to do this because my Mac kept opening with the date changed to 2008, and I keep having to re - enter my Web key.  In addition, it was running much slower.  Since I 'cleaned' everything out, I thought all would work perfect.  This morning, the date changed to 2008; again AND it again asks for my Web key.  Does this mean my Mac has reached it's almost end or could I have a 'bug' on it?
    Again, thanks so much for your suggestions.

  • I am trying to find an app or software to burn iMovie slideshow to a dvd.  I have a MacBook Pro with Mavericks.  There are a lot of DVD Creator apps a the App store. Looking for a recommendation of what to use and tips.

    I am trying to find an app or software to burn iMovie 11 slideshow to a dvd.  I have a MacBook Pro with Mavericks.  There are a lot of DVD Creator apps at the App store. Looking for a recommendation of what to use and tips. Thank you.

    I've been using "Burn" for years and it has been the only DVD burning software I have ever used for the mac. I have never needed to look at other apps. Unless you want something that has more bells and whistles such as Roxio's "Toast" : http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/toast/pro/overview.html
    There are thousands of quality free apps out there for the mac that are not part of the App Store. All you have to do is read reviews online, do a little search, the Apple forums are full of recommendations from experienced users that have been here for years...

  • I have a macbook pro with OSX Mavericks 10.9.5 and some keys that are not working. Specifically, the enter/return button, the "p", "0", ";", and all the function keys.  What's really weird is that happens randomly.  I've never spilled anything on it

    I have a macbook pro with OSX Mavericks 10.9.5 and some keys randomly are not working. Specifically, the enter/return button, the "p", "0", ";", and all the function keys.  What's really weird is that happens randomly.  I've never spilled anything on it, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to fix this.  Can anyone help?  of course this happened after my warranty expired.

    **update**
    I don't know if this will help someone but I am posting this for that purpose.  In the past when I first had this problem, I'd read a post somewhere (sorry, long ago, don't have the link) where an individual was having the same problem and they stated that when the MBP got heated, that's when the keys would stop working, and they went into the MBP and jiggle some stuff around (a specific wire, I'm not electronically inclined so I know NOT of what they spake!).  Well I didn't want to do that but it always stuck in the back of my mind.  I had given up, really, and was planning to take my MBP to the apple store.  But by chance one night I left my MBP on the floor where it's cool, and when I turned it on, the problem went - poof! It seems there was some validity to the post that spoke about heat, because my problems started when I would stream foreign dramas on my MBP for hours at night, and I would hear the fan going off all the time, and in the mornings, my "p", "enter", "0", ";", and all the function keys would stop working. 
    So, maybe try keeping the MBP in a cool place when it's off.  Since I've started doing this overnight every night (keeping it on the cool floor, out of reach of any big feet), I have not had a single problem with my keyboard.
    Hopefully this might help someone.

  • HT1199 I have a MacBook Pro  10.7.3  I purchased finalemusic 2011.  When I try installing it, the Terminal on my macbook opens up a box and then does nothing. Is the problem with my mac? what do I do.

    I have a macbook pro 10.7.3.  I purchased finalemusic 2011.  when I try to install it the terminal opens up on my mac and nothing happens.  What do I do
    and is there a problem with my mac.   the program loads on my pc and it is for either windows or mac,

    Yeah the default program for installing Applications somehow got changed from the proper program to Terminal.
    Right click on the App .DMG file and select Open With. It should say DiskImageMounter.App. If it says Terminal then select Other, at the bottom of the list, and then find DiskImageMounter.app.
    Or after you right click on it select Get Info thenn in the Open With area select Other then find DiskImageMounter.app.
    By the way you are in the correct forum. It is a Mac problem.
