Install fails because it does not find required files on my computer. Hope developer updates to fix the trouble.

Hi Fletchbiz,

Could you give me more information (Mac OS X version, language used, installation option chosen, etc. ) in order to reproduce the error? It installs nicely for me.

Thanks a lot,

Jaime Fdez. Vera


I'm using an iMac core duo 2 GB/2 GHz with Mac OS X 10.5.4. I am using English, and I chose the default installation.

Almost like my computer (same CPU, SDRAM, and Language, but different model, mine is a MacBook).

Does the installer specified the missing resources?

Perhaps it would be better to follow this conversation by e-mail or iChat and just give the solution, if we catch it, in the end. My e-mail is: eludens at mac dot com

I have left a new installer version with less options. I have tested in different computers and It works fine. I hope It will work properly for you as well.
