    Been getting an "update error" almost every time I start up. It says: "An error occurred while trying to load Perian's version info. Please try again later."

    What does this mean?

    Does it affect my machine?

    How can I fix it?

    I have a MBP 2.2 running 10.4.11

    thanks kids

    try uninstalling and then a install. perian is relatively easy to uninstall. remove:

    Code:
    /Library/QuickTime/Perian.component
    /Library/QuickTime/AC3MovieImport.component
    /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/A52Codec.component
    /Library/PreferencePanes/Perian.prefPane
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.cod3r.a52codec.plist

    sorry if this is a dead and gone thread, but it is relative to my interests.

    i am also getting this Perian error messege, but of all the code above, i only am seeing the Audio/Plug-Ins....

    and i also only started seeing this after i ran Migration Assistant.

    help?
