    When I download the latest version of Safari from Apple's website and try to install it, I get a message telling me that I cannot install to my hard drive because I don't have some sort of security update.

    It gives me numbers like the x.x.x version but when I search for it in Apple's website it gives me a few different versions for the update for both Tiger and Leopard.

    Is this normal? If so, anyone have a link to the correct security update?

    I have a new Unibody 15" MBP.

    Thanks.

    This one. Or you could just let OS X auto-detect when you run software update. YMMV

    Thanks for the help.

    My computer does auto-detect new updates and alerts me of them.

    Anyone know why it wouldn't have picked this one up?

    Are you up to date on everything else? e.g. 10.5.6?

    Could it be that Safari 4 is not being picked up by software update because it is still in the beta stage?

    He's referring to the Security Update, not Safari.
