Hello

 

I have a macbook pro running Mac OS X 10.6.8 and I just updated my macbook software and now pages does not start.  I double click on the icon and it does not start.

 

I have tried to open some pages documents and it open unarchiver.

 

Can someone help?

 

It was working a couple of days ago I am sure.

 

 

Thanks in advance

 

Ozzy

    Suggest you upgrade to the latest possible version of OSX and upgrade Pages 09 to its latest possible version.

     

    With some caveats depending what is the most recent OSX you can install.

    Why update to the latest system version, Peter? Snow Leopard is a well functioning system.  If we could get more information from the OP there might be an esy solution to the problem.

    Did you do any Software update after the installing from the DVD? Do you have iWork 08 or 09?

    Delete iWork using Yvans script from his box.com account

    Install from your DVD and do the update which you can find here http://support.apple.com/downloads/#iwork

    YOu don't need higher version than iWork 9.0.4 for Snow Leopard.

    Ozzy,

     

    Does Pages work in another User Account?
