I was able to install and run the 2.5.1 Intel version of the Workplace Forms/Pure Edge Viewer on my MBPro, (Intel-based), with OS X 10.6.1 Snow Leopard.

1) You must right click the .pkg file and Show Package Contents.
2) Find and right-click the Contents, Resources, InstallationCheck file and Open With your TextEdit app.
3) Search for the text "10.4" and replace with "10" then save and exit the text editor.
4) You should be able to close up and double-click the modified .pkg file to install the viewer and finish with a restart.

It "sort of" works in that not all buttons function and I cannot "save as" or print... I'm still working on that, but at least you can view .xfdl files.

I have found a solution for anyone on an Intel Mac: OS X 10.5-10.7
Using a wineskin wrapper, and a few wine-tricks it works exactly as it does on windows, but uses the mac ui and i created some new osx compliant icons: PureEdge for Mac:

Once i have finalized the iPhone/iTouch app it will ported to mac to have a native PureEdge.app. Enjoy! Support for PowerPC is not currently available.

The Intel version says it will install on Mac OS X 10.4.6 or later, but it will not install on 10.5.7. Suggestions?

Does not work with Leopard, OS 10.5.
Installer fails and if previously installed, it crashes when almost immediately when used.
I hope Grants.gov switches to PDFs ASAP, or IBM puts out an update even sooner.

Actually, works great (better than the PC version). If you've installed the latest Security Update from Apple, then version 2.51 will not open. IBM has a fix:

For PPC Machines only - http://www.chori.org/Software/PureEdgePPC.dmg

For Intel Machines only - http://www.chori.org/Software/PureEdgeIntel.dmg

The bad: uses an installer, not drag-and-drop. Also requires a restart post-install.

The ugly: Doesn't even open.

I'm running a Core Duo iMac with OS 10.5.7. When I try to install the Intel version (WFViewer_MacIntel_2006SE_Release) it says the program does not support my system setup. What can I do?
