    Gone back to good old Snow Leopard after a brief but frustrating flirtation with Lion.

    However, restoring iWork 09 from Time Machine back up is giving an error when trying to load the programs.

    I had previously come across a free utility install software that helps with these issues but can't remember or find the name of it now. Any ideas please...

    What exactly did this utility do? Pacifist is one thing that comes to mind, but that has little to do with TM restores.

    Thanks, that was it but you're right, that didn't help!

    This is part of the error message I get when trying to load Keynote:

    Dyld Error Message:
    Library not loaded: @rpath/SFCompatibility.framework/Versions/A/SFCompatibility
    Referenced from: /Applications/iWork '09/Keynote.app/Contents/MacOS/Keynote
    Reason: image not found

    I would reinstall iWork. I'm sure reinstalling would put back the missing file.

    Thanks but don't have the original discs as I bought the MB used :(

    It's weird that it worked on SL before and worked on Lion but not now...

    At this point, you are faced with a lot of debugging or simply buy the iWork app(s) you need in the app store for $20 each and never have to worry about digging for disks again.

    When you bought the mac, did the seller give you the iWork license key? If so, you can download the trial version from apple (www.apple.com/iwork), then enter your license key.
