I'm looking to upgrade to Mountain Lion from Snow Leopard here soon. However, I know Power-PC apps won't work.

However, apparently there are Universal apps that use a Power-PC installer. Therefore, I can't install those apps after I upgrade to Mountain Lion. I have the installers saved my Mac, how can I tell if there Power-PC-based installers?

Thanks in advance.

I noticed that XSlimmer still tries to slim my installers. It will show weather it is PPC or Intel code. I don't know if this helps, but I think you can D/L a trial and see if it will work for you.

I'll go try that. Thanks a lot!
