This does not seems to be a snow leopard issue.
Could you please post the exact error message that you are getting.
Also please post the system configuration of your machine.
I am using a new 15 inch MacBookPro -
OS - 10.6.1
3.06 Intel Cure 2 Duo
4gb memory - 250 gb solid state drive
Running in 64 bit mode
I go to the Adobe website - then to the Digital Edition page and click on
the launch icon which downloads the installer which starts the download.
Then a window pops up which says" Adobe Digital Editions can't be installed
on this computer. This installation will only work with intel based macs."
Please try installing Digital editions from the following link:
Download and install the Stand alone installer and let us know if this helped or not.
Tried your suggestion and it still displays the same message.
I am going to stop wasting may time on this product.
Thanks for your help.
I tried one more thing - I booted into 32 bit mode instead of 64 bit mode and I was able to install the software.
So - it seems that if you boot into 64 bit mode, there is some kind of an issue.
I've just dealt with a customer with exactly the same problem - Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard on an iMac which is running in 64-bit mode by default, installing under 32-bit mode works but means that the customer has to reboot in order to read ebooks as they use a number of 64-bit applications. Having a better error message would be a start (ie state that the installer doesn't support 64-bit rather than saying that it requires an Intel processor when the machine does have an Intel processor!), but is there any news on a possible update to support 64-bit installation?
