No matter what I've tried, I constantly get a message to close all of my open browsers. I have no browsers opened. I have tried installing on my mac pro as well as my macbook pro. It does install fine under Leopard (10.5.x). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry that got stuck on your machine.
Here are some things to try, if you haven't already:
- try looking in the Force Quit dialog (Apple > Force Quit) to make sure nothing else is running, other than the Finder
- check your account's Login Items (Preferences > Accounts >Login Items), to see if there are any web-related programs auto-running, such as iTunes Helper, etc.
- restart Snow Leopard, to make sure no other programs are held open
Let me know whether one of those works for your config.
I have rebooted as well as tried force quitting the itunes helper and still no luck. The only things I have starting at login are some mounted shares. I installed Leopard (10.5) on a separate drive and it installed without any problem there. I'm thinking that something in the installer is wigging out.
*Updated: I have figured out the problem. I started killing more items in the activity monitor until I found the right one. I should have known this, but it turned out to be the Xmarks plugin for safari running in the background. As soon as I stopped that, I was able to install properly.
