    I've just now tried installing QuickBooks Pro '07 for Mac which I purchased in an Apple retail store last month. It won't install. My box meets all requirements, running 10.4.8, 22 Gb of HD space, etc, etc.

    I've checked all the Troubleshooting, gone online to Support, no answers, other than calling their 888 number to see what's up. Has anyone else had difficulty with QuickBooks? (double clicking on app icon installed from CD in Applications folder, and nothing opens.) First time for everything.

    I'm bumping this just once since I've had a recent development with the application. I verified at an Apple Store that the Application Install Disc is not faulty. So, I tried a Safe Boot installation and, it loaded and opened, all the way through Registration.

    After repairing permissions, I rebooted to see if I'd solved the problem. No joy. It still will not open in normal boot mode. If anyone has run in to this or has a suggestion, thanks.

    I've searched through the QuickBooks Pro Forum with no help, as yet.

    Yet another proof Intuit is made up of Orangutans.

    Intuit is the WORST

    I rushed to my keyboard when I saw this thread. When I saw the subject, my mind started re-enacting the hours and hours of wasted time and drama that Intuit and Quickbooks have caused me over the years.
    In my experience as a Mac user (23 years!), this company ranks LAST in both quality of software and most of all, customer support.
    Add on needless updates that don't work, and the fact that you can't reliably transfer files to the Windows version (that most accountants use), and you have an expensive, unwieldy program that doesn't even have features that Quicken has!
    Mac users built this company, then Intuit abandoned them in the late 90's. Now they are back and they say they are sorry and seem to be trying.
    Bottom line, here's my advice:
    If there is ANY WAY to avoid using this software, GET SOMETHING ELSE.

    Maybe Vonage can buy them and they can both rot away together.
