After loading OSX.6.3 I cannot open PPC progs with Rosetta, how do I get Rosetta to work?

I thought it was included when I installed 10.6.3.

Do I need to re-install?

I use an iMac intel.


iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.3)

    Hi, it's an optional install, but usually offers to install it if launcing a PPC App.

     

    Run the Install Disc again & see if you can find Rosetta under Custom Install.

    In reloading OS 10.6.3 I saw that the Custom Install choices did not have Rosetta checked. So I checked it and reloaded. It did help with some apps but other PPC apps are no longer supported by 10.6.3. So I am out of luck for some apps.

    Very simple, update the apps if updates are available for them. If there are no updates available it's time to move on and look for replacements as you're using EXTREMELY old technology. The app developers have the responsibility to update their apps . Some people think it's Apple (or Microsoft is your a PC user) responsibility but it's just the opposite. One good site is www.macupdate.com or go directly to the developers site to see if they have downloads available directly from them.

    Which apps claim they are unsupported?  Any PowerPC Application should work in Snow Leopard.

     

    Have you tried to update it online (Under Apple Menu -- Software Update) and update Snow Leopard to its final 10.6.8?
