I need to access apple works 6 docs in lion

Hi there,
I upgraded to lion but backed up my disk using time machine beforehand. Now time machine is not recognised and want to be set up again. I have files in the time machine that I need to see but can not access. I still have the apple works 6 files on my mac but lion will not open them. I really need to see these files so that I can rework them in a format that lion recognises.......HELP

Do you still have the grey disks that came with your G5 iMac? If so, the AppleWorks 6 installer is on the second disk. Otherwise you can purchase AppleWorks 6 from Hardcore Mac, Amazon or eBay. If you decide to go with Amazon or eBay, don't be put off by the "old version" labels. Any version of AppleWorks 6 can be updated to v6.2.9.  Note that AppleWorks has individual updaters for 15 different languages & you must use the one for the version of AppleWorks 6 you have installed. The US English updater is available by clicking the blue Download button of the page I linked. The other updaters are listed on the page.
EDIT: If you are still using OS X 10.6.2, I strongly suggest you update to the latest version of Snow Leopard, OS X 10.6.8. You can download the combo update from this page.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    It depends on which password you are referring to, but generally speaking you can always restore the Apple TV.

  • How do I convert apple works 6 docs to open in 10.7

    I have a MacBook pro running 10.7. I have many docs created in AW 6 that will no longer open. I tried opening the WP with Pages and the spread sheets with Numbers, but I get a message that "This document was created with an unsupported version of Apple works." I can't open any of the drawing docs at all. What should I do short of firing up my old Mac Mini and saving them all as .doc or .xls versions.
    Thanks, Ed

    Another option: Run Appleworks 6 in Snow Leopard (with Rosetta) installed into Parallels in Lion:

    Are you trying to set your email up on the iMac using mail?  If so, you will some information from you IT department.  Or you can try to setup and exchange server in mail and type your email account and password.  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3748  if it's a POP account you will need to get the setup info from IT.  You can use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to your server.

  • How do i email apple works 6.2.9 spreadsheets, how do i email apple works 6.2.9 spreadsheets

    How do i email appleworks 6.2.9 spreadsheets in a PDF tupw format without getting a jumble of text?

    If you have the iWork application Numbers you can open and use AW 6.2.9 spread sheets and save in this format. Or you can export the ss opened in Numbers as PDF, Excel, or CSV. I don't know about Excel or CSV but the PDF is a fixed picture and will not allow functions.
    I have just tested a newly created AW 6.2.9 SS doc with my G4 PowerBook (OS X 10.5.8). I opened and saved the new AW 6.2.9 SS in iWork 09 Numbers native format then emailed this to myself. I opened the email with my MacBook Pro (MId 2010 OS X 10.7.4,) and saved the SS Doc to the desktop. It opened with a double click in  iWork 09 Numbers and was fully functional.
    What I have done with my Claris Works and Apple Works ss docs is convert all to numbers which maintains the ability to alter and copy the data. Getting the Claris Works docs converted required an older version of Apple works that will read them and allow the saves to be read by v6.2.9.

  • I have two apple accounts, but can only access one. I did all the steps to recover the older account's password but nothing worked. I need to access the older account to update apps. Also would there be a way to just combine both accounts?

    I have two apple accounts, but can only access one. I did all the steps to recover the older account's password but nothing worked. I need to access the older account to update apps. Also would there be a way to just combine both accounts?

    Were you able to reset the account's password ? If not then how did you try to get it reset e.g. http://iforgot.apple.com (which would have sent it to the rescue email address if you have one on that account) ? You can also try contacting iTunes Support in your country to get it reset : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699
    And no, accounts can't be merged nor content transferred between accounts.

  • HT201303 How do I set up my iPhone so that I have to enter my password each time I need to access my apple account? Previously my account name was always stored and I only had to enter my password each time but now it never asks for a password

    How can I set up my 4s so that when I need to access my apple account to either download an app, update an app or buy something then I need to just put in my password?  This is how my 3s worked but the 4 s seems to have stored all my details so I don't need to log in. My young son sometimes plays games and I dont want him to accidentally buy stuff. If I log out then each time I need to go back in I have to put in all my account info. Not just my password.
    Any ideas?

    Depending upon what version of iOS that you have on it then you might have a Settings > General > Restrictions > Require Password setting on it - if you do then set it to 'Immediately'

    Downloading (using iOS or computer) past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519 - enabled with iTunes 10.3 and newer; not all media formats are available in all countries (see: iTunes in the Cloud, iTunes Match, and iTunes Radio availability by country - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5085); apps, books (not audiobooks), music, t.v. shows, and movies (some - not all studios have permitted this). Downloading previously purchased movies and TV shows requires iTunes 10.6 or later. Discontinued items not available. For items not included in the iCloud list (e.g., ringtones, audiobooks), or locations or computer systems where iCloud is not (yet?) available, you only get one download per fee paid. Apple recommends, "You always back up your iTunes library in the event that a purchased item is no longer available on the iTunes Store," (http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519).
    You will be using your original AppleID and password.  that works for any computer you own now or in the future.  Do not make a new appleID.

  • Does CC 2014 eliminate the need to have Final Cut Pro and/or Compressor installed to access Apple ProRes 422?

    Just today, I was working on a Mac system that does not have any of the applications that I would have expected to need to have installed in order to do more than just decompress movie files compressed with Apple ProRes 422.
    I was expecting to have to install Final Cut Studio 3, Final Cut Pro X, Compressor 4, and/or QuickTime 7 with the QuickTime Pro key; however, none of those applications are installed and I am able to create custom QuickTime Apple Pro Res422 Sequences in Premiere Pro as well as export using Apple ProRes 422.  After Effects and Adobe Media Encoder also show all the Apple ProRes variations.
    Does CC 2014 eliminate the need to have Final Cut Pro and/or Compressor installed to access Apple ProRes 422?  Is it something happening on the OS or QuickTime level that would affect CC or CS6 in the same way?
    I've done a web search, but haven't really come up with anything other than older articles about needing to have FCP installed (and I typically work on systems with Final Cut Studio 3 installed as well as CS6, CC, or CC 2014).  If more detailed information is available, it would be great to be able to read up on it.
    The system is a 21.5-inch iMac running Mac OS X 10.8.5, QuickTime Player 10.2, and Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014 (8.0.0 - I know an update is available for PrPro, but it's not my system to make that change).
    Thanks in advance,
    Warren Heaton

    Hi Emil:
    I use ProRes all the time as well, but I have Final Cut Studio on my workstations.
    I had not come across MindPower009's YouTube video.  That explains how ProRes could be showing up without FCP or Compressor.
    So, the answer to my question would be, "No, CC 2014 does not eliminate the need to have Final Cut Pro and/or Compressor installed to access Apple ProRes 422; however, if you are willing to be in violation Apple's terms of use, you can install the ProRes codecs anyway."
    Even though MindPower009's YouTube video comments claim "FREE and LEGAL", it's clear from both the Apple download page and the ProRes codecs installer that Apple expects you to own at least one of their applications.
    Thanks again for the link!

  • Double click on .doc file opens Apple Works not Word 98

    I'm using Tiger on a 14" iBook. I have Office 98 installed which works OK running under the classic environment.
    Only thing is, I can't get it to start when I double click on a .doc file.
    I've been thru all the recommended stuff, select the file, "get info", change the application etc... Whatever I try, it just reverts to Apple Works. When I double click the .doc file, I get Apple Works instead of MS Word.
    Has any one got any ideas? Is this because Word 98 runs under Classic?
    Also, I can open a word (.doc) document by dragging it onto the dock icon for MS Word 98. But if I try the same with an Excel spreadsheet,(dragging it onto the excel icon) it doesn't work. Tiger doesn't seem to like the .xls extension. Was this extension used for something else?

    This document talks about applications which may use XLS:
    If it was used as a Microsoft Works document, you may need to convert it to Excel first.
    Not sure if Excel handles Works documents, but Appleworks does to a limited extent, and Maclinkplus by http://www.dataviz.com/ will better allow you to be able to handle files of unknown type that are spreadsheets.
    To change the application a document opens under control-mouse click a document with that extension and select Open With. Select the Other... and find the application in the dialog to open with, and check "Always Open With" if you want to open all documents with that extension with a specific application.

  • Apple Works doc printing on HP Printer

    I am working with a Mac OS X 10.5.7 and I am having trouble printing a document created in Apple Works 6 on an HP printer. The doc works fine but the bottom margin is far too high and a line at the bottom gets cut off. I have changed the "document" set up to reduce the lower margin to 0 but no help. Do I need to upgrade my printer (HP PSC 1510 All-in-One)? Any other ideas?

    Welcome to Apple Discussions
    Most ink jet printers, especially HP, have a minimum of 0.56 inches for the bottom margin. There is nothing you can do about it. You'll have to set your margins to accommodate this.
    Although I don't think it's related, HP printers have a long history of not "playing nice" with AppleWorks & Pages. The most important thing to do is check HP's web site to make sure you have the latest printer driver for your model.

  • Can't open Apple Works docs in Pages

    Strange, but: The 1st day I used Pages I could open Apple Works and Word docs
    just fine. The 2nd day trying to open Apple Works docs resulted in
    the message: "Import Error- the Apple Works document has an unsupported file type"
    Word docs still open OK. Anyone?

    To save as a "newer" AppleWorks file (i.e. AppleWorks 6 file format), you'll need to have AppleWorks 6, which will open older file formats from version 5 and then give you the option to save the as version 6 files.
    However, your friend will not be able to open these AppleWorks files with Pages: as Peggy and others have pointed out on numerous occasions, Pages can only open AppleWorks word processing files (and even in this case, there are restrictions; as far as I can remember, it will only open documents with floating graphics. Or was it the other way round, and it cannot open files with floating graphics? If I'm wrong, please feel free to correct me, Peggy); it can't open spreadsheet files as iWork '05 doesn't have a spreadsheet program which could handle the data. I'd suggest finding someone who has AppleWorks 6 (anyone with a Mac mini, iMac or eMac), opening the files and saving them in a format which Excel can read.

  • HI my network connections is working fine but it doesnt allow me to update software or access apple store. Any suggestions?

    HI my network connections is working fine but it doesnt allow me to update software or access apple store. Any suggestions?

    Then it simply was NOT Brand New. Doesn't matter what the box looked like when you got it or if you went through the setup pages when you first turned it on. If it is registered to some other Apple ID then someone else had originally registered it and locked it to there ID.
    Type in the serial number of the system into this page.
    And see when it was originally registered.
    Then send it back to Amazon as Used.

Please logon with that I.D. to install the software."  I'm a bit baffled by this as it is a brand new mac and so I don't know why anyone else's I.D. would be logged into this mac.  I'm not really worried about it though, as I don't really need to update my pages, etc, as I like what I have, but I'd love for this stupid "updates availble" popup to stop popping up every freaking day!!!
    Anyone have any suggestions on finding out how to either gain access to update, or get rid of that "other" i.d. that is somehow associated with my brand new macbook?
    I'm running OSX 10.9 if that is of any consequence.
