Currently Being ModeratedMar 7, 2007 2:23 PM (in response to kestrel7)Hi all,
TurboTax works fine on Tiger with all the updates. I installed it today on my
Tiger drive after having no luck on my Panther drive. There is good information about this on http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/
Check it out if you get a chance.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 7, 2007 2:34 PM (in response to kestrel7)Seems pretty obvious that it's an Apple problem. Good job by Intuit to get working on a fix. I hope the Full Tilt Poker people are as quick about it.
However, COME ON APPLE. You introduced this bug about 48 hours ago, there is zero excuse for not having a fix or at the VERY least some announcement that a fix is coming.Powerbook 12 1GHz, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 8, 2007 12:34 PM (in response to kestrel7)We've been seeing this problem with Shake as well on our systems. I've opened a bug with Apple (http://bugreport.apple.com), I recommend everyone open their own report and refer to the one I opened (#5049925) so that Apple will hopefully treat this with a higher priorityXserve G5, Mac OS X (10.3.9)

but you will also need to download the 7.1.3 updater from here
It has successfully replaced my 7.1.5, which was causing ArchiCad 10 to crash. Lets hope that Apple can fix this for all us 10.3 users. Apparently, the issue does not exist for ArchiCad on 10.4, but I don't know about Full Tilt Poker, Turbo Tax, Shake or any of the other programs that have been reported to have problems.PowerBook G4, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 8, 2007 3:29 PM (in response to MWDonovan)In case there are any others like me using OS 10.3.9 that eFiled their taxes right before doing the software update a few days ago but before the IRS & state accepted your return and need a way to finalize your return within the required 48 hours after being accepted. I put my finished 2006 Tax File on a CD and installed it and the TT CD program on my wife's Windows PC. The file and program ran just fine transfering from a Mac to a PC. At least I got to finalize my tax return on time. This is the first time I have ever solved a problem on a Mac by using a PC. If anyone is wondering: your 2006 tax file is still OK, you just cannot open it on your Mac using OS 10.3.9 until the fix comes through. sae44.iMac G4, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 8, 2007 5:19 PM (in response to kestrel7)Hi again,
Today I noticed that the Quicktime update is no longer included in the software updates so I guess Apple has finally gotten the message that they screwed up.
TT might fix their end on Monday, but what about all the other applications that are affected by this "bug"?
I have certainly learned a lesson about being too quick to update anything that Apple puts out.
Let's hope and pray that this mess is corrected soon.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 12, 2007 4:37 PM (in response to MWDonovan)It's now the evening of March 12th. Still no patch from Intuit to work around the obvious bug in QT 7.1.5. Still no acknowledgement from Apple that a bug exists - notwithstanding that the existence of the bug, and a substantial bit of discussion about what it seems to be, is all over the web.
I've been planning to upgrade my hardware (it's time!), but debating whether to jump now, or wait until Leopard is out. I'm now thinking...wait, until it's out and until it's obvious that it doesn't have serious problems.
Kudoes to Intuit - they're trying hard to get a patch out, so that users of their program, at least, can get back to work. Users of other programs impacted by the QT bug don't appear to be so fortunate...Imac G4, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 12, 2007 4:54 PM (in response to MWDonovan)I just spent almost an hour on the apple site trying to fing a way to post the bug with the QT 7.1.5 update. I can not find a way to tell apple they created a problem. Anyone know how I can post a bug report to apple?iMac, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
