    I've been trying to install a .pkg file for a while now but every time I try to installer just starts up and quits. I double checked installer.apps in finder and found that
    A) Installer is not supported on my architecture which is the latest version of leopard.
    B) It's not even on my drive, the file takes up 0kb and doesn't even have a real icon anymore.

    Is there anything i can do besides reinstalling leopard, please help.

    Every time I've experienced an issue like that it was a situation where the given installer was made for a newer version of OS X than what I was running. For example I use one machine that is still on Panther and I periodically find installers that bounce once in the dock and then do nothing. It usually means the app is too new for your old OS.

    Does it just happen with iLife '08 or everything that uses installer?
