Logic 8 will not work on a Lion Mac. You will need to upgrade to Logic 9.

Glad to help. I still use Logic 8 on my Snow Leopard MacBook Pro but have upgraded to Logic 9 for my Lion Mac.

Although not offically supported, there is a workaround people have been using to get Logic 8 to work on Lion. All you need to do is highlight the Logic 8 app in finder, right-click, select "Show Package Contents", double click on the "Contents" folder and inside of this folder is a folder that's labled "MacOs." If you double-click on the "Logic Pro" file inside, Logic 8 will open. You might be able to make an alias of this file to cut out the other steps, but I haven't tried it.
This works for people who already had Logic 8 installed and upgraded to Lion.

Logic 8 runs fine in OSX.7.2 without this modification.
The main problem is that the Logic 8 installer will not run in Lion. You could try installing using Pacifist, or maybe running connected up to a second (older OS) Mac.
