I've upgraded to OS X10.8.2 but I can't open power pc files and applications

I've upgraded to OS X10.8.2 but I can't open power pc files and applications

Note that there's no such thing as "PowerPC files." PowerPC applications won't work on OS X 10.7 or higher, but the files created by those apps can still be opened if there is an updated version of that app. For example, if you have MS Office 2004, you cannot open any of those Office apps, and thus cannot open any of your Office documents. However, if you upgrade to Office 2011, or some other substitute (such as Apple's iWork suite or the free OpenOffice or LibreOffice), you will be able to open those documents again just fine.

  • I upgraded to OS X mountain lion, but now can't open any of my office documents - what can i do?

    Can anyone help me here?  I had no idea that my version of office would become inaccessible once I upgraded to Mountain Lion.  What do I need to do to gain access to these important documents?

    Office 2004 Applications Won't Work in Lion
    You must have Office 2004 which is a PPC-only suite and will not work in Lion. You need to upgrade to Office 2011 - Mactopia - or you can try the freeware suite, Libre Office, that is functionally similar to Office 2007 for Windows except it works on Lion.
    You may want to consider as well:
    These two suites are similar to Libre Office but not as current or as well-supported:
    NeoOffice
    Open Office
    And, then there is Apple's iWork suite:
    Pages - word processing and layout
    Keynote - presentation
    Numbers - spreadsheet
    Each can open and save Office compatible files. They may be purchased separately via the Mac App Store for $19.99 each.
    (Access to the Mac App Store requires Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or higher and an Apple ID.)

  • Office 2013 can't open word, excel files from the network after upgrade to 8.1

    Hello,
    Recently, I upgraded all PCs from WIN 8 to Win 8.1. After the upgrade I noticed that I can't open any word documents and excel files. Before the upgraded I have no problem opened any files. All PCs have over 500GB free space on hard drive. Other PCs that
    run Win 7 have no problem open them only the one with Win 8.1. This is what I got:
    I right click--> property and there is no unblocked. All files resided on the network server.
    Please help.
    Jimmy

    Hi Jimmy,
    Did you get any error message when you try to open an Excel file/Word document?
    If so, you can post the error message and  event log here.Also ,if you had antivirus software installed, try to disable them to test this issue.
    In addition, what happens if you add the network server location as a trusted location?

    Don't be afraid to bump this topic. There's also an App Store forum where you might repost this question, but give some of these details in your post.  I'd rephrase the topic to something like "Can't use App Store to upgrade." (Instead of can't "open".) Then give the details.

  • I can't open a .psd file in Illustrator CS4 after upgrading to Yosemite

    I can't open a .psd file in Illustrator CS4 after upgrading to Yosemite.

    Can you open any file, i.e. jpeg, etc.? Have you installed the Apple legacy Java: Java for OS X 2014-001? I'm guessing you have because you wouldn't be able to open PS at all without it. But have to ask.

  • Just upgraded to 10.8.4 and now can't open canon raw files in photoshop cs5 with camera raw plug in 6.7

    i've just upgraded to os 10.8.4 and now i can't open canon raw files in photoshop cs5 with camera raw plug in 6.7 which worked perfectly prior to the upgrade....anyone else encountered this issue?

    Adobe's software is a mess in terms of the fact that it's sprayed all over the place and may not survive an OS upgrade.  Try reinstalling Photoshop CS5.

  • I recently upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard and I noticed that I have more capacity available on the Macintosh HD. I checked my files and applications and they are still on my computer. Can capacity on the HD change after an OS upgrade?

    I recently upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard on my MacBook and I noticed that I have more capacity on the Macintosh HD than before the upgrade. I checked my files and applications and they are still on my computer and nothing appears to be missing. Before the upgrade I had around 111 GB capacity with around 10.50 GB available on the Mac HD but now after the upgrade I have 119 GB capacity and 20.92 GB available. Can capacity on the HD change after an OS upgrade?

    No, but the upgrade removed unneeded PowerPC code and changed the way free space is determined.

  • Just upgraded to Lion, can't open any pdf file downloaded from internet that was fine with Leopard. How can I overcome this obstacle ?

    Just upgraded to Lion, can't open any pdf file downloaded from the internet that was fine with Leopard before. I just got a black screen when I clicked on a pdf icon on a given internet site, and same happened with several sites that I visited. How can I overcome this obstacle ?

    Try two things with Safari not running:
    1) Launch Adobe Reader, open its preferences, select the Internet category, and check the values under "Display PDF in browser using".  If it's checked, try unchecking it.
    2) Look in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins (at the top-level of your boot volume) for something names AdobePDFViewer.plugin.  If you see such a file, try moving it to a folder named "Disabled Plug-Ins" (if such a folder exists) or onto the Desktop.
    Then see how things work.

  • Since I upgraded to Mavericks X, I don't have "permission" to open my photo files in Time Machine.  Other documents seem to work fine.

    Since I upgraded to Mavericks X, I don't have "permission" to open my photo files in Time Machine.  Other documents seem to work fine, and I am the only "administrator".  

    Is the iPhoto library in your home folder, or have you moved it somewhere else?

  • Windows 8.1 to 8.1 enterprise upgrade; How to keep Keep Windows settings, personal files, and applications?

    Hi,
    I am doing an upgrade for a customer from windows 8.1 to 8.1 enterprise via ISO,
    according to Microsoft TMB, you can save settings, personal files, and applications doing the upgrade, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj203353.aspx#EightOne
    However, when I am trying to upgrade from 8.1 (same language, same architecture),
    I only get two options:
    1. Keep personal files.
    2. Nothing.
    (see screenshot).
    Why is that? what am I doing wrong?

    Yes. Please see:

  • I bought CS5 Design Premium (Student and Teacher Edition) 3 years ago. Now I want to upgrade it but where can I find prices for Students and Teachers for upgrades?

    I bought CS5 Design Premium (Student and Teacher Edition) 3 years ago. Now I want to upgrade it but where can I find prices for Students and Teachers for upgrades?

    There are no upgrades for Student and Teacher Editions. You can continue to use the version you are using, or you can buy CS6 with no special upgrade price, or subscribe to Creative Cloud. However, I believe if you still qualify, you're offered a discount on Creative Cloud.

  • OS 10.8.4 (recent upgrade) and can not open a .dmg file

    I am using an iMac 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 and have recently upgraded to 10.8.4 and can not open any .dng file. It indicats that it is not recognizeable. How can I intall my downloaded software?
    Thanks

    Something else is going on then.  Set up a test/new account.  If the problems appears there too, then it means it's a system wide problem.
    Another thing to try if you have not already done so is to disconnect all devices from your computer, repair permissions and restart your computer.  Or do the following: 
    Mountain Lion Recovery
    Boot up from your computer by holding down the command+r keys.  This will take you to the recovery drive.  
    Select Disk Utility & hit Return.   
    In Disk Utility select the HD on the left & click on Repair Disk (bottom right).

  • I tried to upgrade my Photoshop 11 to 13, but it dosen´t work. I could install the Photoshop 13, but I can`t open it

    I tried to upgrade my Photoshop 11 to 13, but it dosen´t work. I could install the Photoshop 13, but I can`t open it.

    Hi Werner,
    Since you were able to successfully install PS13, can you please suggest what is happening when you are trying to open the Product? Are you getting a splash screen or is it not even giving that? Try to disable the graphics card & Switching back to the On board graphics and try again.

  • I was using Numbers '08 and just upgraded to 3.5.2 but now can't open any of my '08 files.  Message says save to '09 first to open.  Well, I don't have '09 so what do I do?

    Or you may obtain iWork '09 DVD package from Amazon online et al. Sold at very low price now. It is really worth it. Don't forget to apply the iWork 9.0.3 updater after intalling it.
