Little snitch and Onyx don't work. Neither does GrowlMail, but don't really need it since we have notification center.

I could install and run Parallels but couldn't open a VMWare Win XP machine that I have! Always giving me an error at the end when converting!

VMWare don't start at all!

Anyone with luck with any of the VM software out there?

What is the problem with GIMP? Did you try to install Xquartz? I read that X is not included by default anymore, but Xquartz will continue to be supported. Maybe it's just temporarily broken.

I dunno what the problem is. I have xquartz and it just wont launch.

Let me try to get a Console readout

EDIT: What the hell? Its working now :S

Edit 2: Add MonoDevelop to the working list (YAY!)

Here's what works for me
LightRoom
Photoshop 5.1
Bridge
Excel 2011
Word 2011
Coda 1.74
BBedit 9.1

What doesn't work for me is Vmware Fusion and that's a major problem but I have Lion backed up on an external drive so I can boot off that when I need too.

App Store Problem...

Can anyone get ANY Appstore apps installed? Just about everything for me says it's already installed somehow, but it's not. Keynote, the whole iLife suite, Twitterrific, Sparrow, RapidWeaver, Hype, Logic Pro, Growl, Aperture, Pixelmator, ScreenFlow, NoteTaker, somehow there all installed. Does anyone else have the same problem??

I'm just wondering if anyone else has this problem, or is it just me? I'm sure Apple will get the App Store worked out with this if this is really a problem, 'cause I have no problem installing 3rd party apps and running them, like Microsoft Office 2011 runs fine. Just wanted to know. Thanks.

I had the same problem when I installed ML on a partition. I'm doing a fresh install later, deleting Lion 10.7 and am going to see if that fixes it.
