Why can't I install the App Store App on my Mac OS X v10.5.8

why can't I install the App Store App on my Mac OS X v10.5.8
Just purchased OS X Mountain Lion but in order to down load I have to have the App Store App on my Mac. Please help.

10.6.6 was the 1st to support the App Store, 10.6.8 is actually needed now as a minimum.
Install it & update to 10.6.8 so you have the App Store to buy & download the huge 10.8 Installer.(10.9/Mavericks is the only download available now without specially calling Apple).
Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...
General requirements
   * Mac computer with an Intel processor
    * 1GB of memory (I say 4GB at least, more if you can afford it)
    * 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)
    * DVD drive for installation
    * Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.
    * Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.
Call Apple Sales...in the US: 1-800-MY-APPLE. Or Support... 1-800-275-2273

  • HT202794 Why can't I download the free Apple apps for my new iPhone 5S? It was set up in store and restored from my iPod Touch 5.

    Why can't I download the free Apple apps for my new iPhone 5S? It was set up in store and restored from my iPod Touch 5.

    Are you logged in with the same account that was used to activate the phone ? If you are, and the apps aren't showing as free, then try logging out of your account by tapping on it at the botto of the Featured tab in the App Store app and then log back in and see if they then show as free.

    Because eight years ago, when Apple developed it, Steve Jobs was adamant that iOS NEVER EVER EVER be compatible with Flash. That... will never change.
    Apple says to use "SkyFire" as your browser if you must view Flash content (which they do not recommend you do with an iPad). It's free in the App Store.

  • Why can't I open the apple store on my iPhone

    First let me say this is a phone I got sent from Apple.
    The issue I have is when using my extension cable once fully charged my phone says charging is not supported with this accessory.
    Next issue I have is I can't log into the App Store on my phone. I click sign in put in my apple id and it does not show me as logged in.
    Last issue I have is I have deleted and installed the Apple Store App and it tells me goto settings and use iTunes & App Store menu.
    Oh and when I update my apps on the phone I still have to click the update apps when I connect phone to iTunes.
    Any help trying to fix these issues would be greatly appreciated.

    Well then it is somewhere on one of your Home pages or in a Folder:
    Do a spotlight search to see if it accidently got moved into a Folder: Swipe down in the center of the screen to bring up the Spotlight search and type in iTunes. If it is in a folder, the folder name will show up to the right.
    If it is not in a folder, but shows up on the Spotlight search, then you need to look at each Home screen to see if you can find where it got moved to.
    Finally, you can go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Home Screen Layout, which will reorganize all of your icons so that the original Apple core apps are on the first Home screen as they were originally. Of course, if you have a lot of app icons that you have set up on specific Home screens you would have to move them all back to where you wanted them. But that should put the iTunes icon back on the first Home screen.

  • Why can't I install the newer version of Flash when I already have the older one?

    My virus software is turned off. I have Flash currently on my computer. In the troubleshooting page I can see the clouds in the picture so I know my current flash is working.  I went into the internet settings for add-ons and the flash is currently enabled.  Why can't I install the newer version of Flash? I tried the run and save option and it still didn't work. I can see the installer in my downloads folder. But, all I get is a black blank box that does nothing. What else can I try to get the installer to actually install the updated version of flash?

    Try the offline installer(s)
    Flash Player for ActiveX (Internet Explorer)
    Flash Player Plug-in (All other browsers)
    Flash Player for Mac OS X

  • Why can't I install the latest version of Flash Player?

    Why can't I install the latest version of Flash Player?  The install button is always gray.

    Don't use the downloader/installer.
    Use the FULL offline installer: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/mac /install_flash_player_12_osx.dmg
    And DON'T run it either. When you mount the dmg
    and it opens the window, right click the installer and "Show Package Contents"
    Double click the Adobe Flash Player.pkg and let it run the COCOA installer.

  • Why can't I install the latest version of Flash Player?  I have all plug-ins allowed.

    Why can't I install the latest version of Flash Player?  I have all plug-ins allowed.

    If you're sure you've installed the latest version of Flash, take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. After each step, relaunch Safari and test. For a "missing plug-in" error, start with Step 8. Back up all data before making any changes.
    Step 1
    You might have to log out or restart the computer before a Flash update takes effect.
    Step 2
    From the Safari menu bar, select
              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data...
    and confirm. Close the window. Then select
               ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Delete All. Close the preference pane.
    Step 3
    If you're only having trouble with YouTube videos, log in to YouTube and load this page. You may see a link with the text "Leave the HTML5 Trial." If so, click that link.
    Step 4
    a. If you get a warning of a "blocked" or "outdated" plug-in, then select the Security tab in the Safari preferences window. In the list of plugins on the left, there should be one—and only one—entry for "Adobe Flash Player," showing the same version number that you installed. Select that entry. On the right there will be a list of websites for which you have specifically allowed Flash, if any. It's normal for the list to be empty. Below that is a menu labeled
              When visiting other websites
    From that menu, select either Allow or Ask.
    b. If you still get the alerts, then go back to the Flash Player preference pane and select the Advanced tab. Click Check Now. Quit and relaunch the browser.
    c. If the alerts still persist, triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select
              Services ▹ Open
    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open. Inside it, there should be a file named "XProtect.meta.plist". If that file is missing and you know why it's missing, restore it from a backup or copy it from another Mac running the same version of OS X. Otherwise, reinstall OS X.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. In the Finder, select
              Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens by pressing command-V. You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.
    Step 5
    In the Safari preferences window, select the Advanced tab and uncheck the box marked
              Stop plug-ins to save power
    Step 6
    Open this folder as in Step 4:
    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    Delete the following item, or anything with a similar name, if present:
              Flash Player (failing).plugin 
    You may be prompted for your login password.
    Step 7
    Re-download and reinstall Flash. Download it from the domain "get.adobe.com". Don't click a link from any other website, including this one, because you can't trust links. They may be an attempt to trick you into installing malware masquerading as Flash. Type the address into the browser window. Never download a Flash update from anywhere else.
    Step 8
    If you get a "missing plug-in" error, select
              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
    from the Safari menu bar and check the box marked  
              Allow (or Enable) plug-ins
    Then click the button marked
              Manage Website Settings...
    if present and make sure that the website is not blocked for Flash.
    Step 9
    Select
              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.

  • Why can't I install the latest update?

    Why can't I install the latest update? There is an update available. I'm asked to agree to the terms. I do and nothing happens.

    There are two common reasons why an iPad can't be updated to the latest version of the operating system.
    The most common reason is storage space. You can try to free up space of your iPad.
    The second most common reason is the original iPad. For example, for iPhone, only iPhone 4s and the later can upgrade to iOS 8 and the higher.
    Update the iOS software on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - Apple Support

  • HT1338 Why can't I install Leopard for PowerPC on my old Mac Mini?

    Why can't I install Leopard for PowerPC on my old Mac Mini? The massage "This can not be installed on this computer" appears.

    My thoughts are that your difficulties could be one of these:
    your non-retail DVD may only work on a very limited range of Mac minis
    the installer may not like your new RAM
    the installer may not like the language change especially if the disk has not been erased first
    I have seen a little evidence for 3 in the code of other Leopard install DVDs - they appear to have less stringent language checks for erased volumes. Whilst I have never modified model specific installers I have modified retail installers to ignore speed and RAM checks.
    My advice:
    back up your whole mini hard disk to an external disk - see notes
    erase the hard disk and partition into 2 volumes with Leopard install DVD
    try to install Leopard on one volume
    put original OS on the other volume
    Notes:
    Carbon Copy Cloner can be used to backup the whole hard disk
    ensure the mini can be booted from the external disk before you erase the internal disk

  • Why can't I install the netflix app to my iPhone

    I can't install any apps to my iPhone

    Can you find the App Store app on the phone ? If not then that implies that the store is hidden by restrictions, and if it is then it will also stop you installing apps from your computer.
    If she can't remember her restrictions code then was it on the phone when it was last backed up ? If it wasn't then you can restore to that backup and it should be removed.
    If it was on the phone when it was last backed up then the only way to remove the code is to reset the phone back to factory defaults (e.g. your mum could log into her account on http://www.icloud.com and send a remote wipe message to it) and you can then re-sync content back to the phone - you won't be able to restore to the backup as that will restore/keep the restrictions code in place. Prior to resetting the phone copy any purchases over to your computer's iTunes library via the File > Devices > Transfer Purchases menu option, and copy any important documents, photos off it.

  • What is a "browser redirect" ? Why can't I access the music store?

    Hi,
    I just posted a message about not being able to access the music store. I said reconnect when I mean redirect.
    Does anyone know what's going on and why I can't I access the music store? I was able to get on 3 days ago. Thanks to all who can tell me something.
    This is REALLY starting to irritate me.
    Saradonna

    I am also becoming very frustrated. I am new to this forum but after spending the better part of my day off trying to figure out how to make this work I have hit the wall. It strikes me that this should be much easier to access considering that we are looking to spend money. Does apple not want my money? I have tried everything that was recommended in all the sites I have been directed to, to no avail. I am not a computer whiz, so I need specific and simple answers as to how to fix this. I have never been able to access the music store, and each time I try I get the white screen, and a perpetual connection bar. I then have to close iTunes, and reboot my computer to be able to access it again. HELP ME PLEASE!!!
