Woes installing Logic 9 on a clean Lion disk
      #951304 - 04/11/11 04:59 AM
I have a Logic 9 upgrade, purchased on release day of Logic 9. I also have a MacBook Pro with a clean Lion install. Apparently, the installer.pkg won't run in Lion. Can anybody recommend a workaround? I could wipe the drive, install Snow Leopard, install Logic, then upgrade back to Lion, but that seems a little silly. Is there an easier way to launch the installer?

The installer won't run?

I've seen loads of people with Lion that installed Logic from their disks just fine, then ran software update to get the latest Logic version, and it worked fine.

Exactly what happens when you run the installer?

Can you install using Pacifist instead?

When I click on the installer, I get, "You can't open the application LogicStudio.mpkg because PowerPC applications are no longer supported." My understanding is that the installer.app on the disc operates under Rosetta. There must be a way around this, right?

Logic 9?The Logic 8 installer is PPC (and won't run on Lion), but the Logic 9 one should be ok.

If not, you could always use Pacifist, as suggested above, to install the app.

There should be no problem with a logic 9 upgrade on Lion, I did the very thing a month ago, no problems apart from long install!

Is it a straight logic DVD?

The disc is a Logic 9 upgrade, purchased day of release from Apple. It is definitely giving me the PPC error, but I am attempting to use Migration Assistant to move Logic 9.14 from a backup drive to my clean Lion install. The progress bar shows 75% or so. We'll soon see if that worked. If not, I'll try Pacifist. Is it fairly straight forward to use Pacifist?

Well, it looks like I'll need a fresh hard drive to test Pacifist for installation. Migration Assistant brought everything over just fine. I do intend to try the other way, though. I'll let you know how that goes. Thanks for the advice!

You are correct, boxed versions and the upgrades are universal binaries.

To test Lion I updated to Lion on an external drive, that contained a clone of my snow leopard install to get around the PPC issue, with Logic and 3rd party plugs.

Search the net, to see if there is a work around.
