Why do I get a message 'file not recoqnized' whenever I try to download the mac os 8.6 update? I have tied to download this file from several sources (including the Apple website) with the same result. I have successfully downloaded the file previously, but the zip I stored it on became damaged and I need another copy.

The links for 8.6 on the Apple download page are dead. If you need an 8.6 updater other as the English one, visit this part of the site: http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/

I happily updated my OS 8.5 system by downloading your OS 8.6 and installing on my 7500. Installed it successfully then tried to use my QuarkXpress software - horrors - the program opened momentarily then displayed an error message 'cannot open program - error type 2'. My QuarkXpress manual does not list this 'error type 2' Can anyone help? Is there a quickfix? Desperate!

In reply to the peeeeceee comment, without them we would all still be using mac Lisa's and probably still paying $KKK for them! Yes, people still are using Mac Os 8.6, even 8.5, 8.1, 7.5, 6.x ... Why not. If it ain't broke, why fix it. Mac Os 8.x-9.x is a versatile and stable OS. As a matter of fact, I just purchased a complete 7600 for my 2 year old that dual boots Mac OS 9.1 and YellowDog Linux. The best of both worlds for approx. $US50.00 !

yeah a few who can't afford the hardware to run a *real* OS: OS X. there just isn't anything else worth bothering with, and i started using Apple computers in 1978. never owned a peeeeceeee and never will. that said, i think that someone's been playing around here, like clicking the OS 8.6 updater download link many many times here, some little pinhead thinks it is funny. i've seen it happen before here on MU, a month or two ago some very unimportant and obscure driver was top of the Weekly Popylar list, obviously a silly joke perpetrated by little pinheaded dweebies with nothing better to do.
