Hi Guys! Just upgraded my old MacBook 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo to OSX 10.5.8. After having done this I am having a few issues! When trying to install new software I'm getting this error below!



Pop up box appears stating, the application Installer quit unexpectedly. The problem report states this:

Any ideas?


Thanks, in anticipation!

    Whew, so many zeros!???


    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 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, (not Repair Permissions). 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 & clear caches.)


    If that all works out I'd reinstall the OS.

    Thanks for the prompt response. I don't have the Install Disk but I'll borrow one.


    Will get back to you and try your suggestions!

    If perchance you can't find your install Disc, at least try it from the Safe Boot part onward.


    For now anyway.

    Well, I tried both of the steps above but still had the same problem.


    Ended up backing up, formatting and installing fresh.


    Running nice and smooth now!


    Thanks for your help!

    OK, good work, thanks for the report!
