  • Have can't open iphot because power pc apps are no longer supported

    I recently burned up an 8 year old Mac (all in one machine) for lack of better terminology.
    It was replaced with a MacMini so I could connect to an existing monitor.
    Upon launching, I have an error, when I open iPhoto or iDVD, etc that says:  Can't open Iphoto because power pc apps are no longer supported.
    What do I need to do now?
    I'm assuming the software I had originally on my old machine is outdated?  But I also thought it was pre loaded with all the basic stuff.
    AS you can tell I'm not the biggest user............ but I would like to be!

    Sounds like someone restored your programs from you old PowerPC-based system to your new system, probably running OS X 10.7 Lion or 10.8 Mountain Lion. Apple dropped the capability to run PowerPC-based code in these systems. You can go to Launch pad and access the App Store to buy updated versions of the iLife programs. However, iDvd is no longer available from Apple. You can buy iLife in a box from sources like that will have iDvd included, and possibly even by calling the Apple online store at, in the US, 800-MY-APPLE. Ask for the latest version of iLIfe with iDvd off the legacy products list.
    You probably should click on the apple on the left of the menu bar, click about this mac, more info, systems report, and applications (which will take a few moments to display).  Click kind to sort the list. Any programs that say PowerPC won't run under 10.7 Lion or 10.8 Mountain Lion.

  • I am unable to launch Elements 8 on my MAC OS 10.9.3.  Downloaded Licence Recovery App"  Tried to run Licence Recovery Launcher and get message 'can't open app"Licence Recovery Launcher" because Power PC applications are no longer supported"  Don't

    Can anyone advise if I am too far behind in releases and will be unable to  use my Elements 8 on this OS?

    I included a link in my previous response and this is not allowed.  I have attached a screen print of where I got the link for the Licence Recovery App.

  • Since "upgrading" (?) to Lion, my Hewlett Packard scanner has ceased to function. "Power PC products are no longer supported." Is there any way to get my scanjet3570c to work again as it did so well before?

    Since upgrading (?) to Lion my HP 3570c scanner won't operate because "power PC products are no longer supported"
    Is there any way I can get a perfectly serviceable scanner (HP3570c) to work with my iMac?

    Is it just the HP software that's not compatible, rather than the scanner itself?
    A couple of things you could try that may work. Launch Image Capture in the Applications folder and see if that recognises your scanner. If that draws a blank, you could try downloading VueScan from and see if that works. If does, you'll need to buy a licence to make it fully functional.

  • Not able to install Logic on mac with OSX.  10.8.2. Error message: Logic Studio.mpkg cannot be opened as the power pc programs are no longer supported. I have logic studio 8 software purchased in 2007 and upgraded with logic studio 9 (purchased in 2009)

    After an earlier attempt to move Logic from my other mac (OSX 10.6.8) with the migration assistant to my new mac with OSX 10.8.2. I've re-started the whole start up process by erasing the hard drive from the new machine and build it up from scratch. After a new "out of the box" start, I decided to install LOGIC from my disks : starting with my 2007 package Logic Studio 8 and upgrading with my Logic 9 package from 2009. When trying to start to install 2008 I got the error message : Logic Studio.mpkg cannot be opened as the power pc programs are no longer supported.
    What does this mean? HOw do I get this working under 10.8.2 as it works flawlessly under OSX 10.6.8. For sure I didn't buy a new machine to have OSX 10.8.2 but I suspect this is the roadblock to installing my logic package.

    I completely lost the thread (I actually got confused between you and another poster on a another forum that was asking the same basic question) and somehow ended up thinking you were trying to install on a PPC Mac
    My apologies and please ingnore those parts of my last post relating to the PPC Macs...
    You have an Intel Mac and therefore Logic Studio 2 Boxed Upgrade set should install/run on your Mac without issue. As I said earlier.. you do not need to try and install from the original Logic Studio 1 /Logic 8 Boxed set...(It won't work anyhow because you have an Intel Mac and that version had a PPC installer)  but just install from the Logic Studio 2 / Logic Pro 9 Upgrade Boxed setof DVDs instead...
    Have you tried the "Make Disk Image" solution I gave earlier? That normnally works under such circumstances as what you are describing can happen when your DVD drive cannot read the DVDs correctly... I have had this situation myself where one drive read them okay and another failed to do so for whatever reason. Making and then installing from Disk images of those exact same disks resolved the issue for me...
    You can try to reinstall directly from the DVDs of course though under some circumstances it may not allow you to reinstall Logic Pro itself if that part of the original installation attempt was successful... in which case you can also try this... (It's probably the easiest method if Logic 9 was already installed and present in your Apps Folder)
    If the Logic Pro App is in your applications folder..
    Run Software Updates to update Logic Pro to a version that will run under 10.8.2 (The initially installed version of Logic will not)
    Run Logic
    Go to the menu bar in Logic and select Logic Pro/Install Additional Content and select all content in there..
    This content is basically exactly the same as what is stored on the remaining DVDs of the boxed set so you might not need to use the rest of the DVDs to install from but download it all instead from Apple Servers...

  • I can't open the file in word because it is corrupt and cannot be opened, what can i do?

    I can't open the file in word because it is corrupt and cannot be opened, what can i do?

    I had a Word .doc that became corrupted while SpellChecking an entire vintage book that had been OCRed. Crashed every time I opened it in Word. I was able to open, strip off the Word Header & Footer (invisible), spell check and save as a plain text file with TextWrangler - BBEdit's Baby Brother > - no Word-ish formatting, but the data was there in total.

  • IOS 8 lockscreen keyboard does not let me input characters with accent marks. My password has an accent mark. I can't restore the device without unlocking it and turning off find my iPod. What can I even do here?

    I do have a third party keyboard installed (fleksy), and I removed english and emoji from the keyboards list in settings before rebooting the ipod. When it booted up, it asked for my device password with the default keyboard, but I can't type any letters with accent marks, so I can't enter the password. I figured I could fix this by restoring a backup and changing my password, but I can't restore a backup without turning off Find My iPod - which of course requires me to unlock the device with the device password, which I can't do. Am I stuck here? Is there anything at all that I can do?

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.

    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.

  • I have updated OSX  10.7 Lion. to find Power PC Apps are no longer supported. I can no longer access my Word documents nor can I access my Entourage Emal files. Any suggestions?

    I am not at all smart when it comes iMac App's.
    Having upgraded to 10.7 Lion, find that I cannot open any word documents , nor can I gain access to my Entourage email folders. I am now left feeling thatthis is really not my era.
    I am an old guy attempting to keep up the young guy's technology and no longer have  idea what I am  doing.
    I have managed to start anew with Mail.
    But have no idea how to find or proceed without the  now unsupported Microsoft Word application.
    Where can I find  a replacement for Word, and how may I ever be able to get into my old Word Documents?
    Since upgrading from Snow leopard I find that I am unable to get  my Seagate hard drive selected  as a location for  Time Machine back-upswhen running through  System Preferences.
    Any help on these issues would be greatly appreciated
    Please excuse any lack of ettiquitte in this submission, I am new to this culture.

    Thanks Barney, I am now using pages to open exisiting Word documents. and then saving in the new format. I then trash the old incompatable (.doc) file.
    This works OK, but it will be a time consuming operation to be repearted on each file that I use.
    Is there any shortcut to enable sync all of the .doc files to Page?
    I have not managed to recover Entourage email files . But now use Mail application, which is fine.
    Encountered problems are ongoing.
    I have an Epson Epson Stylus Photo Rx430 printer.
    Since upgrading to OSX10.7 print files do not load to the printer. The Epson job box shows data is being sent to printer but it the task is never completed.
    I take this to be a Printer  Driver issue.
    Today, I have been in contact  with Epson Printer support, enquiring if they have any driver updates for RX430 that would be compatable with OSX10.7 Lion.
    I was notified by Epson that they do not have any drivers for any of their printers for the new OSX 10.7.
    How may I  continue using my now unsupported Epson printer? 

  • HT2476 Can't open Word documents. Get error "You can't open the application MS Word because Power PC applications are no longer supported.

    What do I do to fix this error? Can't I use MS anymore?

    You have many choices, the least attractive in my opinion is to upgrade M$ Office to the newest version.
    Look into Pages ($20 from Apple), NeoOffice, or OpenOffice (both free). All open and save MS Word formats.

    DOWNLOAD SAFARI AND RE-INSTALL to fix maps in IPhoto Places '09  8.1.2
    I too lost my IPhoto Places maps on June 2nd.  Initially I used Best Buy's Geek Squad tech support.  The second tech was able to fix the problem.  He said there was a corrupt file in Safari, not IPhoto. However, I didn't know what he did to fix the problem.
    A week later, the maps were gone again.  I tried to contact the same Geek Squad tech, but no luck.  I talked to several other techs, but they could not find a solution, even though I told them about Safari.  The last tech directed me to this web page.
    It was here I learned about turning the WiFi off and on.  That restored the maps to the pictures, but not the Big map.
    Today, at the Apple Store Genuis Bar, I was told they were unaware of this problem.  When I mentioned that Safari was where the problem was, he suggested I download Safari from the Apple Web page and re-install.
    So far this is working!    So happy all of the maps after two plus weeks.
    I hope this helps others too,

  • I can't get the PPS sent to me, only sound if anything, no pictures..what can I do to fix that?

    When I am sent an attachment....usually PPS, the sound if anything comes up otherwise it a notice pops up saying it can't open up the file , it may not be support by installed converters or it might be corrupt...can't remember the exact wording. A friend suggested that I go to TOOLS and security, that the setting might be set too high but when I got to that it doesn't give me an option to change the security level. I use to be able to get everything but my computer was worked on and the person changed a lot of things. I don't know enough on how to look into this without some help.
    Many thanks.

    What security type are you using on your router? WEP, WPA, WPA2?

    Connect in recovery mode iOS: Unable to update or restore
    and follow this article: iPhone and iPod touch: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen
    If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. Refer to Updating and restoring iPhone, iPad and iPod touch software.

  • HT1725 I bought an album but the last track only plays for 4 seconds when the actual track should be 3 minutes. itunes states that all available downloads are complete and when I check the file in finder it is also only 4 seconds long.  What can I do???

    Can anyone help with the above?

    Depending upon what country that you are in (music can't be re-downloaded in all countries) then try deleting that incomplete track from your iTunes library and redownload it via the Purchased link under Quick Links on the right-hand side of the iTunes store home page on your computer's iTunes : re-downloading.
    If you aren't in a country where you can re-download music or if it re-downloads in the same state then try the 'report a problem' link from your purchase history : log into your account on your computer's iTunes via Store > View My Account (Store > View My Apple ID on iTunes 11) and you should then see a Purchase History section with a 'see all' link to the right of it ; click on that and you should see a list of your purchases ; find that album and click the arrow to the left of it, and then use the 'Report a Problem' link and fill in details about the problem (iTunes support should reply within, I think, about 24 hours).
    Some people have had a problem with the 'report a problem' link (it's been taking people to this site on a browser instead of showing a form in iTunes) - if it does that to you then try contacting iTunes support via this page : click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page.
