After installing Mountain Lion 10.8, I couldn't install Final Cut studio 2.0.1-the same software that I had bought and used with Snow Leopard. Please advise.
I recently postulated that Rosetta has nothing to do with this problem and that use of an installation instruction in Terminal should be able to install this program, here:
Not having the program, Final Cut Studio, myself, I am unable to confirm this theory and I am looking for confirmation that it works for the OP here.
Thanks Michael and Nick for the quick reply. I use the application programs to do my things but computer- science-wise, i am an idiot. Names and terminology like you guys used confuse me more. I'd like to try Terminal, if I could get more detailed instructions from you. I did find Terminal on my Mac and I would let you know if Terminal would solve the issue with FCS, but I just didn't know what to do with it. More help, please.
Terminal is located in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder.
Try your quoted instruction in Terminal with the installer disc in the optical drive and let me know what happens.
If it works, it may take a few hours of time that seemingly nothing is happening, so maybe try it and then go to sleep!
As I mentioned earlier, there will be an hours long period of "apparently" nothing happening after you hit RETURN in Terminal after typing (or better yet, copying and pasting) the instruction line into it.
I had suggested you attempt this at a time when you could then go to sleep and see what appears in the morning when you rise.
Try it again tonight...
