My iLife 11.1 disk won't install on my mini running os10.6.8. Is it no longer compatible?

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    iLife 11 is most certainly compatible with 10.6.3 according to Wikipedia.

    I would highly doubt Apple would cut the disk from installing it with a Software update to 10.6.8.



    So that would suggest the disk is bad, dirty (use a bit of rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth to polish) or defective.



    Try using Pacifist from CharlesSoft to extract the programs.

    Did you get any error messages? I'm particularly thinking of expired certificates?

    The disk has been in a sleeve boxed up since I bought it, other than the one time I installed it on 10.4.7

    AFAIK iLife 11 cannot run on Tiger. Snow Leopard is the minimum version of OS X.


    Are you sure it an iLife 11 disk?
