    Hi all, I'm new to this forum as of a couple of minutes ago. I downloaded some new icons for my mac and saw a program called CandyBar. Does it only work on Leopard? When I try to run it, it says "You cannot use the application 'CandyBar' with this version of Mac OS X."

    I have the most updated version of Tiger: 10.4.11

    That is a little bit weird. To take a leaf out of Apple's book:

    "Have you checked the permissions?"

    Seriously though, 10.4.11 sometimes makes apps think it's 10.4.1, which is a significant problem. It's probably that.

    CandyBar 3 (the one you probably downloaded) is Leopard only; you'll need CandyBar 2 which works on Tiger. No idea where to get it from though, you may have to Google it :).

    Thanks for the link, and the program works. Unfortunately, I had already begun manually replacing alot of the icons, and the program won't replace those.

    The manual "copy & paste" method works, but with out the transparency; so the icon is always on a black background. The icons replaced by CandyBar are great. I don't know how to un-do the ones I replaced and let the program do it's thing.

    Any suggestions?

    Select the application in the Finder.
    Press Command-I or choose Get Info from the menu.
    Click on the icon in the Get Info window.
    Press Delete.

    They didn't upgrade CandyBar for the later versions of Tiger, and it wouldn't work for me. I'm not buying an upgrade for Leopard.
