This application opens with a string of error messages about support files which cannot be found or opened, then crashes with a kernel access fatal error. Maxon support has not responded.

Computer info: Mac Pro 3,1 dual 2.8 gHz Xeon; 8GB RAM in matched modules; Radeon 5780 and HD2600; dual boot 10.6.8 and 10.7.3. Rock-solid machine - except for this app which won't run. Deleted, redownloaded, and reinstalled - same issues.

None of Adobe's crappy "updaters" ever worked for me either. I was stuck with version 9.3.0 for months.

Fortunately, as of this morning, there is now a "unity" full installer of Reader 9.3.3 available at Download that, drag your old version of Reader to the trash, install, and bang - you won't have to bother with the tedious series of (usually broken) updaters. At least until *more* security issues emerge....

According to, "Picasa 3.6 for Mac" ... "Requires Intel CPU". I dunno, but maybe I'd take the developers' word for it.

Thanks for the amazingly fast (within 20 minutes) response! Yet again, MacUpdate shows what a invaluable resource and great website it is.

It's puzzling that it does identify as a "Universal" application - legacy code hasn't been stripped out of the app yet, maybe.

Note that ALL comments below this one refer to versions of the Office Update PREVIOUS to 11.2.5, and thus may NOT APPLY to this latest update (which presumably addresses some or all of the issues mentioned).

I'm an Apple Product Professional and ADC member with four modern Macs (all with Mac OS X, v.10.4.7, and Office 2004). I applied this patch successfully to all three of the non-Intel machines.

I've never had ANY issue with any version of Office 2004, including this update. It could be noted, however, that I don't use documents in Latvian or Eastern European character encoding, but do extensive work with documents which use multi-byte fonts, primarily Japanese. Also, Entourage is not my primary e-mail client, but I do use it for some non-mission-critical accounts.

Bottom line: I had no hesitation applying this patch on the day it was released (11 July, 2006). Those not experiencing any issues, OR those with existing problems with the software, may wish to postpone this update until more information comes in, and/or do some research into what issues this patch addresses.
