    iLife 06 installation fails in my Mac

    I wanted to install the iLife 06 application in my Mac but it just fails with the error saying “You can’t open the application iLife 06 because PowerPC applications are not long supported”. Why this is happening? What should I do to install without any problem? It will be good if you can provide me the information.

    Hello Friend,

    Just Follow Some Steps Are :

    >> That Error Happens Because Power PC Means The Processor Does Not Support The iLife Apps Which Process You Have Used In The MAC PC
    >> So Once More Time You Have Checked The iLife System Requirement Than :


    Processor : PowerPC G4, PowerPC G5, Or Intel Core Processor
    Processing : 733 MHz
    RAM :1 GHz G4 Or Faster and 512 MB
    Display : 1024 x 768
    Graphics Card : Quartz Extreme-Compatible Graphics Cards

    >> So Firstly See The System Requirement Than Try For Installing
    >> If System Requirement Match Than Restart The PC And Installed The iLife Software In The PC Without Any Issue.

    I Hope That Info Is Usefully

    hiiiiii...my dear friend

    iLife is on a DVD, so it sounds to me like the eMac you are having trouble with does not have a DVD ROM.

    It probably has a CD-RW.

    You can launch the System Profiler application and check that.

    You could try installing via the iBook. Put the DVD in the iBook and turn on file sharing in the Sharing Pane of System Preferences.

    Then connect the iBook and the eMac with an ethernet cable.

    Under the eMac's Finder Go menue select connect to server.

    You may have to manually set different IP numbers on both the machines, but you should be able to mount the iBook hard drive and the DVD on the eMac's desktop.

    You only need to mount the DVD, and then do the install.

    Or... put the DVD in in the iBook.

    Launch Disk Utility. Under File select New ... Disk image from folder and then navigate to and select the DVD.

    This should make an image of the DVD.

    Save the image to any location you choose.

    Then reboot the iBook while pressing the T key.

    This will boot the iBook in target mode, making it a firewire drive you can connect to the eMac with a firewire cable.

    Copy the image from the ibook to the eMac.

    Unmount the iBook by dragging the icon to the trash and press the iBook's power button until it shuts down.

    Double ckick on the image on the eMac to open it and run the installer.

    it might be due to the incompatibility issue

    so check whether your system full fills all the requirements

    if not install the compatible one

    delete all the temporary files, caches, history form your system

    scan your system completely

    restart your system

    then try to re install the app following all the instruction and accepting all the terms and condition

    now you can use this app
