Here we go again with Apple messing up an AirPort Utility update. It's times like this that I want to reach through the Internet and THROTTLE whoever causes these entirely unnecessary problems at Apple.
1) Today's rendition of the AirPort Utility v5.6.1 installer will NOT install on Mac OS X 10.7.4.
2) It DOES install into Mac OS X 10.6.8.
3) It is possible in install AirPort Utility v5.6.1 onto a 10.6.8 system volume then copy it over to 10.7.4, where it works perfectly. Yes, perfectly. I just successfully used it to change settings on my Airport Extreme Base Station.
4) There is NO REASON for the installer to not work on 10.7.4, except some [expletive deleted] human at Apple messed up the installer.
Doesn't this chaos remind you of the LAST time Apple updated AirPort Utility? What is Apple's problem?
And of course, AirPort Utility v6.1 is dumbed down and INADEQUATE for intermediate or advanced users. It is designed ONLY for novice users. Fine. I don't comprehend the point of splitting the full and dumbed down versions. But if you're going to do that Apple, at least let the intermediate and advanced users INSTALL the full version! Why did I have to do a song and dance routine on my Mac today to get AirPort Utility v5.6.1 installed onto Mac OS X 10.7.4. Tell me! I'm intensely sick of this blundering!
