And the Lion version is … ?


... Never?


Looks like no lion updates and this has become abandon-ware. No Lion Updates ever!

This is off topic, unless you've a printing problem like I had beginning with snow leopard. My problem with an epson printer came down to apple's installed glutenprint [sp?] driver for the printer as far as I can tell. After installing epson's own driver, the OS still wouldn't recognize it until I used print utility to deactivate the printer and then reactivate it at which time epson's own driver was recognized and printing was back to normal.

The "Requirements" section should be changed to reflect that this version REQUIRES Mac OS X 10.6.x "Snow Leopard".

Um, I got my license within 30 minutes of paying for the upgrade. I am in the same timezone, and also I did put my old vers.6 license in the PayPal notes...

Have a little sympathy for these folks, they may not be in your time zone and we all have to sleep sometime.

The only other issue I have is that PT7 will not run on my 32-bit only Mac Mini Core Duo... but I think the dev can fix that by re-targetting the build for 32 and 64-bit Intel.

The new version DOES work great on my MBP.. It looks to be a great update! Just the 32-bit issue... doh.

Downloads incorrect (version v6.0.7, not 7.0.0) which is incompatible with Snow Leopard.

Sorry about that -- we've fixed the link.

Well I just bought the 6 to 7 upgrade because this program has saved my printing bacon more time then I can count. I am sure glad they went to 64bit for snow Leopard on Version 7. I one thing I disagree with is there antiquated license scheme is SLOW once you pay for it. Why in the world does FixAmac take over 24 hours to email a person the license? No other shareware program I have come across doesn't take that long.

Print Therapy fixed my problem. I use an HP LaserJet P1006. I use it both in OS X and Win XP through VMWare Fusion on my MacBook. Looks like Fusion (or XP...) doesn't "free" the printer when closed. So couldn't print in OS X, though printer was visible in PrefPane. Could print from my wife's iMac though. I ran Print Therapy (after carefully reading online docs). Everthing is OK now. I've registered the software. Thanks to the developer.

When do we get a UNIX tool to run these commands remotely (or schedule via cron/launchd)? :)

Longtime fan and licensed user. No hesitation on upgrading for me as I use this app at least monthly to keep matters in check.
