    Hello-

    I have a MacPro tower OS 10.7.5 and want to install imovie HD onto it.
    I get and error and it won't let me.
    Is this because the OS is too new?


    I have the imovie HD working fine on my macbook with OS 10.6.8 running on it. Should I downgrade the Lion on my MacPro to Snow Leopard?

    Thanks.

    It'll work, what is the error you're getting?

    I get the iLife 06 Install DVD window and a cancel symbol over the "Read Before You Install iLife"

    Looks like you might have a DVD for Power PC (PPC) systems. Snow Leopard was the last to support Roseta applications. Does the disk say "Universal" or "PPC" on it? (Look for a logo).

    As far as the error goes are you able to double click the installer package and install it? Check for scratches on the disk as a sign of corruption.

    If all else fails, you can always get the latest iLife applications on the Mac App Store.

    That's a simple file, you can skip reading that. Launch the installer by double clocking on the yellow and brown installer package.

    Hi-
    Thanks for the help. It won't let me install. It says:
    You can't open the application iLife 06 because Power PC application
    no longer supported.

    And it does have the universal logo on the box.
