    Odd, and it does this even after a restart? Try simply copying the .app files over from your Power Mac, I do this occasionally with iLife apps since I don't have an install disk but some of my PPCs came with it installed.

    I have found this issue to occur in a rare situation if the latest iLife support files are installed before installing the iLife software package.

    Well, I grabbed iLife 09 off of a Leopard MacBook Pro restore disk and I couldn't install it on my G5, so I extracted the .apps and Library files and put them in the correct places and it worked fine.

    I just the program jbarley recommended. After I figured out how to use it, I simply "extracted" the files and they appeared in the Applications folder. I ran Software Update and updated the iLife programs to their latest versions (however it didn't find any updates on the MDD after install). I already had iPhoto and iMovie 6 installed on both macs brior to the iLife '06 install. I believe iLife support was one of the 1st updates the system installed (after the combo update). That makes sense though. I think I have to do a fresh install of Leopard on my MDD (To fix a problem with QTE) So i'll makes sure I don't install iLife support until AFTER I install iLife.

    I have done that with software in the past, However, the retail iLife '06 and '09 discs have all the files in packages (.pkg) no .app. does anyone have a AppleWorks 6 app file they can provide me that came Panther grey discs?

    I just noticed this now, lol. Anyway, I used The Unarchiver (Free download for PPC, Free on App Store) to open the .pkg files, and it all worked out.

    I have The Unarchiver already, In fact I have deleted the OS X Archive Utility renamed the Unarchiver to the same name as the OS X one and placed it into the CoreServices folder.

    I use it for everything, but .zip files, since OS X handles them fine. I absolutely love The Unarchiver, I should really tell Gavin to add it to the software archive if he can get permission for it.
