I have no Pages or Nunbers, even though I have iWork in the Applications folder.  When I click on either Pages or Numbers I get a window telling me that this version cannot be used with this OS andI may need to reistall the app(s) but I cannot find anyplace to reistall them.  Do I ghave to reinatall ML from the rcovery disk?  I started to do that but when it said it would take 16+ hours I canceled the reinstall.

 

I have Mavericks on an external drive and all is fine with that when I satart up but not so in ML on theinternal  HD.

 

Any clues as to what is going on ?

 

Thanks


iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    iWork 08 doesn't work on Mavericks. You didn't say  which iwork version you are supposed to have on the computer.

    I forgot to mention that the iWork insatalled on my iMac is '09 not '08.  Sorry for all the typos on the other reply.  Guess I have big fingers.

    Not true. The only version of iWork that doesn't work in Mavericks as well as Lion & Mountain Lion is iWork '05 because they are PPC apps. Here you can see that I have 4 versions of Pages running & 2 versions of Numbers. I do change icons to make it easier for me to see which is which.

    My iWork 08 doesn't well on Maverick. Maybe I did something wrong.

    I don't use it extensively, just as I don't use iWork '06, but they do work.

    all these discussions are great but it does not alter the fact that I cannot open anyt pages or nymbers docucments on my comnputer running 10.8.5,(iWork '09 instsalled but not working) and this happened all of a sudden about a weekago.  I did install Mavericks on an externalt drive but that really should't have anything to do with it, should it?

     

    I can open all of documents with Preview but of course I cannot edit them and some are resumes that need editing at times.
