    Hey all, as the title vaguely suggests I've recently made the upgrade from OsX Leopard to the Snow Leopard. In doing that, I did a clean install (as in I made a backup, and then wiped my HDD and then installed Snow Leopard) and Now, foolishly realised that iLife isn't a "App" but rather a $80 software purchase.

    So, I tried to copy + paste (yes yes, I'm a noob - but this is how I understood it would work) iPhoto (as its the App I wish to use, so I can view my iPhone photos on my Mac) and it's now mentioning I can't open this program as I don't have iLife 09'.

    So, short of repurchasing the software package :( Is there any method for me to have the functionality of iLife again?

    I've tried to locate individual updates from the Apple support site, but the version I tried, 8.1.2 I believe. Was not needed, again due to iLife 09' not being installed. And I don't wish to sit through downloading numerous updates in the hope I may find the correct one.

    Cheers, Chris.

    No, regrettably (with regards to software) I did not due to privacy issues. (Long story)

    You're probably just missing the iLife folders from /Library/Application Support.

    Do you have the original install DVDs that came with your machine?

    I believe you can install iLife from the Application install DVD.

    I shall check those instructions out guys and report back. Thanks again for the time taken to help :)

    Chris.

    - Calderone, cheers for being the fresh clear mind for me. A simple case of inserting and install the applications disk solved the problem. Thanks very much.
