    Nope, no problems here. I remember the installation being a bit shaky in Panther though.
    But, it's still a resources hog. :(

    The stand-alone app crashes every time, but web-page embedded WMP stuff plays just fine. :confused:

    It's working fine for me. Have you tried ditching the preferences? Maybe ditch the whole thing and reinstall it?

    Click on the Apple (upper left hand corner) > About This Mac > Click on Version 10.4 once and it will change to the build you have.

    Thanks for that.

    Build number 8A428.

    I assume all current retail versions of Tiger (like mine) have this same build number, right?
