I apologise if this is the wrong place to post this question as it's related to 2 issues that I believe are related.
So, for about a year now I have been unable to update my Airport Utility 5.6.1 when doing a software update. I quite simply get the error:
"The update “AirPort Utility” can’t be installed.
An unexpected error occurred."
I've obviously tried downloading it directly from the apple website here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1536
This fails as well with the error:
"The Installer encountered an error that cuased the installtion to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance."
To be honest this has just been an inconvenience not essential so I have just ignored it for the past year.
However I now want to use Time Machine to back-up my HD. So I've gone to Time Machine iand as I don't have an external HD to use as a back-up I've attempted to use Time Capsule.
This doesn't work at all, when I click on the Set Up Time Capsule button; Time Machine just blinks and does nothing else. After some googling I found that when you click this button it should bring up the Airport Utility but this wasn't happening for me. After taking a look at the console the error is:
"AirPort Utility: Unable to load nib file: MainMenu, exiting"
I was wondering if anyone is able to shed any light on this or run through some troubleshooting with me on this? I am pretty sure the problem is down to Airport Utility and I'd love to re-install it but obviously it is not letting me.
Just so you are aware, I am on a MacBook Pro running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.
Also I have tried running Disk Utility - I have rebooted using my Mac OSX installation CD and then ran both the repair disk permissions and repair disk options. There were a number of permissions that it repaired and the repair disk fixed it where I had 1 extra volume than I should have (on the top of my head I had 50,888 and I should've had 50,887 - numbers may not be correct).
Appreciate any assistance on this.
