    Through Erase and Install and some other processes I lost a couple of applications, one of them garageband. I have a Mac OS X Leopard, but I just recently upgraded from my original Panther. So I put in the first Panther disk and chose the "Install Applications and Classic Support." It installed fine, but then when it came time to actually restore the applications I got a message that said "Could not set up necessary connection with helper tool. Make sure the application bundle is intact and try again," and I had to quit the installation. I tried again an the same thing happened.

    What does this mean? what's an application bundle and how do I make sure it's intact? A lot of stuff got moved around lately and perhaps the applications folder isn't where it should be, could this be a problem? Thank you!!

    Pacifist was great! turns out I was missing Appleworks also haha. thanks for the recommendation! :)
    I also installed the garageband application, but the problem is, though, that the entire instrument library is missing. I can't find it anywhere, so i'm downloading something I found in a similar thread...

    ( if anyone is interested

    it's taking a long long time, but hopefully it works! if it doesnt i'll post again to spare anyone else who might try to download it in the future

    Well, unfortunately I couldn't get it to work ): theoretically it should have, I think, but I've seen a lot of other people post the same problem, so i think garageband just needs to get it together!
    great idea, though
