I have Snow Leopard 10.6.3. Yes, I know I am very behind the times . . .


The download starts, but quits after a few seconds and I get a "not recognized" message when I try to open it.

    Are you doing a Software Update or downloading directly from Apple?


    If Software Update, instead download the combo 10.6.8 update from here. Use Disk Utility (on your hard drive in application/utilities)  to repair permissions, then apply the combo update, and when done, repair permissions again. You'll be at 10.6.8 at that point.
