    What do I need to launch some apps that when selected just bounce a few times in the dock then disappear.
    Thanks

    Mmmmm... StuffIt doesn't launch Apps, it compacts or un-compacts them

    Exactly what Apps are you trying to launch?
    Maybe that will help with the troubleshooting

    are the apps compatible?

    I run 10.4 and if I try to install an app that is designed to run on 10.5, It will either pop up and close right away, or bounce a few times then close. It just can't run on here.

    same thing will happen if you try to launch an intel only app on a ppc machine.

    Which is why I asked the question... what are the Apps?
