    so i went out and bought an apc powerchute backup tonight.
    installed some software and when i try to launch it from the preferences, it says

    preferences error
    you cannot open apc powerchute personal edition preferences pane on this computer. contact the developer of this software for newer version.

    so i went on apcc.com and dl'd the newest software and still the issue.

    anyone know what gives?

    I found this on the APC website.

    You might want to contact them for help. They have an online chat you could try.

    APC Powerchute Issue

    I had the same issue - I installed it from disc only to find it didn't work on Intel Imac. There is an uninstall command on the disk though and that seemed to work.

    OK, just to confirm the latest software you downloaded was PowerChute Personal version 1.3.4 right? I'm just trying to help trace this down as I have that version running on one PPC machine with 10.4.11 and two Intel based Macs with 10.5.6 with no issues so wonder what the heck the difference could be if we are running the same APC software....
