*I have not tested the above links but seemed like good solutions for those who might be interested.


I encountered the following error when trying to install Final Cut Express 3.5 on Lion.
You can't open the application .mpkg because PowerPc applications are no longer supported.

This problem seems to happen when you are using new version of OSX such a Lion(10.7) and Snow Leopard (10.6).

During my quest to find an answer to resolve this I found many people had the same problem with other applications as well. I assume this should work with other applications but have not tested other than Final Cut Express 3.5.

Because I have a new system on my 2010 iMac as of last night, I can't use e.g. AppleWorks 6, Click'N Design 3D, iMovie HD, etc. I was wondering how my mom and I could somehow get this issue straightened out.

I mean, the game is installed and everything.  I just get the same message you get when I try to run it.  So perhaps this isn't the right tutorial.  Still, what can I do?

Hey MyMarcioTV,

I am trying to install a download but it says no apps can run it...what app do i need?

4 years ago

Don't have Microsoft Windows on my Mac tho I appreciate your comments re pirated software. Don't use them normally, but in the case of Final Cut Pro X, where Apple changed the architecture rendering Final Cut Pro 7 projects illegible, many of us are left between a rock and a hard place. I think the fact that FCP users are either switching to Adobe Premiere or downloading FCP 7 illegally are the natural consequences of a cynical move on Apple's part, as much as I love Apple products. Thankyou.

Hi Maureen unfortunately I don't give support in how to pirate software. However, I will warn you that most of those sites are usually infected with many virus. The fact you are getting such an error means that final cut file was made to fool windows users even though they only develop for mac. Good luck

Hi MyMarcioTV,
I am trying to download a Final Cut Pro 7 from Pirate Bay and I get a message; "Can’t open the application because Microsoft Windows applications are not supported on OS X" - but I have a MacBook Pro OS X 10.8.5 (12F37). What the heck is going on?! I'm stuck because I removed the horrid Final Cut Pro X version that came with my computer..
Thanks! I'm desperate!

You can also just drag the installer into the Terminal window and it will automatically add the path.

4 years ago

Instead of typing "/Volumes/Final\ Cut[…]" etc, drag the installer file to the terminal window. Terminal will fill in the path information for you. Then continue typing the rest of the command.

4 years ago

Use the backslash to escape a following space. For example: My\ Files.

4 years ago

The path to the installer is the location of the installer file which installs the software you want to use. In this case, the installer resides on an installation CD. If this were in a folder, say, the Downloads folder in your home folder, you might use ~/Downloads/Installer\ Name.mpkg.

The tilde is a shortcut for your home folder which is located in /Users on your startup disk. Note that the backslash "\" is used to escape the space in the name of the installer file.
