I have an extensive library of movies developed using Director MX 2004. They have been functioning on both Windows and Apple systems up to now. Recently we discovered that our movies are not working on the Snow Leopard Mac OS. When we try to run them we get a message indicating that there is no application associated with the file.
I tried removing all the xtras I could from a sample movie. The only xtras remaining in the projector are
This did not resolve the problem. We still get the same message.
I would consider upgrading to Director 11 if I was convinced it would resolve the problem. However, my research indicates that the MX 2004 version does work on Snow Leopard. Does anyone know whether one or more of these xtras is the problem? I'm open to any suggestions for a solution.
The MX2004 projectors should still work but they require Rosetta which is an optional system installation in Snow Leopard rather than being included in the main installation as in previous versions of OSX.
Thanks, fazstp. This is helpful information.
I have purchased Director 11.5 and it seems to work fine on Snow Leopard without Rosetta so far. I'm continuing to verify that it supports our other software.
