Via Software Update, I just downloaded & installed the latest version 6.1 of Airport Utility. When I tried to use it I discovered it recognizes but doesn't support my Airport Expresses (odd in itself).

 

I was told to install version 5.6 to manage these older devices. So I obediently tried to install it (actually it's v. 5.6.1).

 

But it won't install! The Installer tells me:

 

"AirPort Utility can't be installed on this disk. The version of Mac OS X on this volume is not supported."

 

The system requirements are listed as "AirPort Utility requires Mac OS X v10.5.7, v10.5.8, v10.6 or later." I have 10.7.4.

 

What the heck is going on here????

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 4GB, 256GB SSD
