I have Mac OS 10.4.11, and suddenly Photo Mechanic 4.6.9 stopped opening a few hours ago.  Last night it worked and this morning suddenly the shortcut icon disappeared and when I try to open from applications folder I get message saying this application cannot be used with Mac OSX!  I need to use this application for work so I really need to get this working.  Help!

Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    Could be many things, we should start with this...


    "Try Disk Utility


    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.

    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)

    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.

    3. Click the First Aid tab.

    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.

    5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."




    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.


    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)


    Also, could it have possibly auto updated to a later version?
