I have version 7.1.4 but it freezes on start up; I am just assuming its not the right one for Snow Leopard??

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    I have version 8.0.6, part of iLife 09, and it works with SL. The current version is 9, part of iLife 011.

     

    Version 7 was part of iLife 08. I'm not sure whether it's compatible with SL, as it was released during Tiger and Leopard days.

     

    The current version, 9, is available from the App Store for $14.99.

    iLife '09 is no longer available from Apple.

     

    You could try Amazon or the like to purchase the Disc version of iLife '09.

    Version 8 was never available as a download. You'll have to find an old DVD version of iLife 09 somewwhere.

    v9.0.4 works with Snow Leopard. The version in the App Store is 9.0.9 and doesn't.

    That means you need to find either an old DVD of iLife 09 or iLife 11. If the later, don't update it.

    Hiumbug. It runs on my machine. From the About iLife '11 file:

    No: 9.09 specifically requires Lion. I have 9.04 (from the box set disks) and Snow Leopard: 9.09 shows as an update in the App Store but will not update because of requiring Lion (in fact you have to click 'Show incompatible updates' to see it). The box set, of course, doesn't know about this update. It's a bit silly to have an incremental update with revised requirements, they should have made it v10.

    Ah! missed that nuance in the later posts, since I posted before reading them carefully. I don't buy anything from either store, so never made the connection.

    The day will come that you will be forced off of Snow Leopard; are you aware there are currently workarounds to running your PowerPC apps in Lion/Mt. Lion?

    1.  If your Mac is old enough to boot Snow Leopard, you can upgrade to Mt. Lion, but partition your hard disk or add an external hard disk and install Snow Leopard into it.  Then you can "dual-boot" into Snow Leopard when you want to run your PowerPC apps.

     

    2.  If your Mac is too new to boot Snow Leopard, or you want to run your PowerPC apps concurrently with Mt. Lion, you can install Snow Leopard Server into Parallels 8 and run your PowerPC apps there.  Using the Coherence mode in Parallels, these apps can be side by side:
