    fansoftmedia Level 1

      I created a projector in Adobe Director 11.5 for the Mac.

      For some reason PowerPC processors (PPC ) can't open it because they received a message saying the application is "not supported on this architecture."

       

      And idea if there is a way to make projectors compatible for the Mac PPC processors?

       

      Thanks,

          Check your product version by typing "put the productVersion" into the message panel - if you don't get the response "11.5.9" then update the to latest patch by selecting the Update option from Director's Help menu. (I suspect you already are on 11.5.9, though, otherwise you wouldn't get this problem).

           

          Next, go to the Publish Settings page, and under the projector tab you will notice an option to create the Mac projector as either a "Universal Binary" or an "Intel Binary"

           

          Universal Binary will run natively on PPC Macs, and will run under Rosetta on Intel Macs running up-to-and-including OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

           

          Intel Binary will run on all Intel Macs running OSX 10.5 and upwards.

           

          Rosetta is a virtualisation layer built into OSX versions up to 10.6; It allows programs written for PPC to run on Intel Macs. Rosetta was dropped from OSX 10.7 (Lion), so a UB projector won't work on Lion.

           

          Hope that helps
