  • " You cannot use the application "iTunes" with this version of MAC OS X."

    I am getting the response " You cannot use the application "iTunes" with this version of MAC OS X." How do i get Itunes on my Mac. I tried to download the newest version but it won't let me do that either.

    What operating system version are you using on your Macbook?  If you are still using Tiger 10.4 the new iTunes requires Leopard (10.5) or higher.

    Firefox 4 requires at least OS X 10.5 and an Intel Mac. You can get the latest version of Firefox 3.6 which works on OS X 10.4 from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

  • You cannot use the application "Mail" with this version of Mac OS X

    I get the above message when clicking on "Mail" on my backup drive. Could that be because I did not specifically upgrade my backup drive from Tiger to Leopard?
    Hope this is an easy one to answer. Thanks

    yes, most probably that is an old version of Mail - i.e. Tiger - and is not compatible with Leopard. You would need to replace it with the newer Leopard version of Mail
    hope this helps

  • I get the error message: "You cannot use the application "Firefox" with this version of Mac OS X. What now?

    I have Mac OS X 10.4.11.

    Firefox 4 requires at least OS X 10.5. You can get the latest version of Firefox 3.6 from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html
    Mozilla are working to prevent Mac users with non-compatible systems from getting the notification about Firefox 4, and also not displaying the "Download Firefox 4" button on http://www.mozilla.com

  • Cannot use the application "Safari" with Leopard

    When I try to open Safari in my non-admin account I get an error message reading 'You cannot use the application "Safari" with this version of Mac OS X'.
    Bizarrely, if I logon as the admin account it works perfectly.
    I have repaired permissions, run software update, repaired permissions again, logged in as SU and fscked and still the same thing. I discovered that Omni Outliner would open the plist but I don't have the knowledge to interpret that.
    I think I have used Safari on this laptop since upgrading to Leopard. Most of the time I use Firefox so it hasn't been an issue anyway. The really bizarre thing is it works normally in the admin account.
    All suggestions welcome.

    Thanks for that. Tried it to no avail
    I have found out what has gone wrong but I have no idea how.
    I keep all my browsers in a subfolder of the applications folder. I trashed Safari with the intention of downloading a clean version from the Apple website. When I got there I couldn't find a version for OS X (there may be one, it just isn't obvious). So I thought I'd just try Safari one more time from my admin account. Of course the app wasn't in the browser folder. So I went to put it back in the applications folder with the intention of moving it from there to the browsers subfolder.
    But no. There was already a newer version in the applications folder. How did it get there? I have no idea. But it opens. So I've moved it to the browsers subfolder and it still works.
    So problem solved. I don't understand how it happened. And especially why it worked all along in the admin account.
    Thanks to everyone who suggested solutions.

  • "YOU CANNOT USE THIS APPLICATION SAFARI WITH THIS VERSION OF MAC OS X"

    hi, just downloaded the update for mac 10.5.1 - all went well - then tried to open Safari and received this message "YOU CANNOT USE THIS APPLICATION SAFARI WITH THIS VERSION OF MAC OS X" - I have tried downloading Safari again through netscape but that does not seem to work either - ANY IDEAS???? Thanks

    It sounds likely that you have more than one copy of Safari on your hard drive. The one in your Applications folder is the one you should have. The one you're trying to launch is an older version that somehow got moved somewhere else, so that the new version got installed in your Applications folder (where it should be) while the old version is running (or trying to run) from another location.
    First, double-click on the Safari application file that you have in your Applications folder. Does it run properly, without error messages? If so, everything is fine. You just need to get rid of the old version of Safari and set it up so you can easily launch the new version that is in your Applications folder.
    Are you clicking on the Safari icon in your Dock when you see the error message? If so, do this: Control-click on the Safari icon in your Dock and select "Show in Finder" from the contextual menu. A Finder window should open showing the location of that copy of Safari. If that Finder window is any location other than the Applications folder, delete the Safari file that is in that folder. Then drag the Safari icon out of your Dock. Navigate to your Applications folder and drag the Safari file from the Applications folder to your Dock.
    You should be all set, but click on the new Safari icon in your Dock to make sure it is the correct version and runs without problems.

  • You cannot use this version of the application iCa with this version of Mac OS x

    Bought a macbook pro from a friend- running 10.5.8. Could not find iCal in the Apps folder. Researched on line and it sounded like I needed to reinstall it from the disk. I did from the original os x disk and when I tried to open it, received the following message:
    you cannot use this version of the application iCa with this version of Mac OS x
    I have two disk for version 10.2. Neither disk offers "optional installs" but the second has "AdditionalApplications.pkg" but doen not install iCal at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. That brings up a whole new question- can I run 10.6 on my macbook? The specs are below:
    Model Name:
    MacBook Pro 15"
      Model Identifier:
    MacBookPro1,1
      Processor Name:
    Intel Core Duo
      Processor Speed:
    2 GHz
      Number Of Processors:
    1
      Total Number Of Cores:
    2
      L2 Cache:
    2 MB
      Memory:
    2 GB
    Was told at Apple Store that it would run terribly slow.

  • You can't use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac

    I just installed 10.6 and all seemed well until I tried to load Mail. I got this response
    "You can't use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac You have Mail 3.5".
    I successfully reinstalled 10.6 and I also reloaded the apps that were contained in another folder on the CD. I get the same message every time I try to load the Mail program. I deleted the "mail plist" file and that did not work. So I recovered my old one from Time Machine. Still dead!
    My poor wife is so frustrated that she is now using my machine!!! HELP PLEASE!

    I successfully reinstalled 10.6 and I also reloaded the apps that were contained in another folder on the CD.
    Why would you "reload" any apps? They should have been installed when you installed 10.6. Where exactly did you reload them from?
    So I recovered my old one from Time Machine.
    ...which undoubtedly still contained the old copy of Mail from your last Leopard backup, and not the current version of Mail that should have been installed with 10.6.
    What you need to do is reinstall the appropriate version of Mail from your Snow Leopard install disk. You can install one specific program from the install disk using [Pacifist|http://www.charlessoft.com> - though, check carefully to make sure it's been cleared for use with the Snow Leopard install disk!
    Whether that will fix your problem or not, I don't know, as I don't know what exactly you've done. It sounds like you've done a lot of things you should not have done, mixing components of your older system into your newer system. It is entirely possible you will need to reinstall the entire system.

  • TS1572 you can use this version of the application mail with this version of mac osx

    Cannot use this version" alert appears when opening application mail with this version of mac OS X, we seem to have lost our mail and now we get this message.

    Make sure the 4.5 only is in the /Applications folder alone and not inside any enclosing folder, then run the update again. /Applications is inside the main Macintosh HD folder, not in your Home Folder, if you even have one there. Move the other Mail to the Trash for now, but don't empty it yet.
    Link for the update.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1586
    If that doesn't work, move both Mails to the Trash (don't empty yet) and run both updates, the 10.6.8 Combo update (the link for that is in the Apple article) and then the Security update again.

  • HT1338 When I click on the iPhoto icon, this message pops up; "You can't use this version of the application iPhoto with this version of Mac OS X." This started happening after I applied the update for iPhoto. How do I fix this?

    I installed the update for iPhoto and now iPhoto won't open. Help!

    Have you tried deleting the plist from the Library folder?
    If this doesn't work, you could import the old version of iPhoto version of iPhoto from Time Machine and try the update again.

  • Upadated iphoto and result is i can't open it, it says "you can't use this version of the application iphoto with this version of Mac OS X. You have mac os x 10.7.3. the application requires mac os x 10.7.5 or later.

    after upadting iphoto it is asking me to get the latest version of mac os x, but can i get back to the older version of iphoto? or is there a way to solve it without upgrading to mac os x 10.7.5 or later.

    If you have 10.7.3 then updating to 10.7.5 is free.

  • Can't use this version of the application Mail with this Version of Mac OS X

    I have update to Lion but am receiving this error message when I try to open Mail from the Applications folder. I am told that I have Mail 4.2. I have tried to update softwareand am receive the message that there is no updates. I have tried to repair disk permissions (as some forums have suggested). That has not helped and I am now stuck on how to go forward.
    In olden days, I would probably have tried to resinstall the programme. But I have no idea how to do this with Lion since I do not have an install disk.

    Run Mail from your Applications folder instead of the Dock. You may have copy of Mail 4.2 that was moved out of the Applications folder but is still tied to the Dock icon.
