Three weeks ago, I purchased Pages 4.3 on the App Store. Apple charged my credit card $19.99 (plus tax). Now when I try to download it from the App Store, I get an error message:  "Pages can't be installed on Macintosh HD because Mac OS X version 10.9 or later is required."

 

I'm not on the bleedng edge - I have an old MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard, and an even older 1st-gen MacBook Air. I still use Rosetta for a couple of critical applications and am unable to migrate to Mavericks at this time.   Does anyone know how I coerce the App Store to download Pages 4.3? Having paid for it, I'd like to be able to use it.

 

Thanks.

    The new versions of iWork apps require Mavericks. Your old version requires Mountain Lion or earlier. If you wish to use it then erase the drive and install Mountain Lion. The new versions' downloads are free, btw.

    I'm sorry. I thought you already had downloaded the older version prior to Mavericks' release. In this case you will have to see about buying an older boxed set of iWork '11 on eBay or Amazon.

    Contact Apple & ask them to send you an install disk for iWork '09.

    Call again & ask for Customer Relations. A number of users have reported they have been able to get Apple to send them a disk for '09 since they had purchased them from the Mac App Store & those versions are no longer available for re-download. You are just asking for a backup of the software you purchased.

    When you've got you DVD and installed iWork you need probably to update to iWork 9.0.4 DL1435

    Because 9.1 doesn't add anything needed for Pages on Snow Leopard. I think it did take away showing which type of document that is opened after the document name. 9.1 add support for Lion.

    You found the iWork 9.0.5? I thought that Apple withdraw for soem reason. I use that update.

     

    Pages 5.0 can't read AW. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5475754?tstart=0

     

    Stay with Pages 4.3!
