Unable to Install Applications on Mac OS X Lion
  

I've been not capable to install more than a few programs on a fresh install of OS X Lion 10.7.2 Rosetta stone, Office for Mac 2011, Final Cut Express 4. I actually require some help. I've checked for all updates.

When you are not capable to install what happens? At what point are you not capable and what dialog do you acquire, if several?

Re: Unable to Install Applications on Mac OS X Lion

As a general reply to your trouble I would note that older versions of programs that are Power PC based are not compatible with Lion. I'm not convinced if this applies to your programs, other than Office for Mac 2011 which is completely well-matched with Lion.

Re: Unable to Install Applications on Mac OS X Lion

Give this a attempt and let us know--
  1. open disk utilities and repair disk permissions then confirm disk permissions
  2. restart and hold command + R
  3. open disk utility that you have booted to your recovery partition
  4. repair disk and verify disk
  5. restart and attempt to install application

Why would I Verify Permissions after repairing them?
Quote:
- repair disk and verify disk
Again, why would I run Repair Disk and then Verify Disk?

Re: Unable to Install Applications on Mac OS X Lion

Hey just annoying to help that has assist me with this trouble on snow leopard and I have been told to repair disk permissions from the user side and then on the system side this has determined issues like this for me previous to just throwing it out there. On the other hand again I could not effort and provide recommendation, I estimate that might be improved?

Re: Unable to Install Applications on Mac OS X Lion

I'm not telling you not to try to help at all. Permissions is a good thought, it may well be a permissions issue. Iím just correcting a couple of inaccuracies, which can be helpful to you in future posts. There is no need to run Repair Permissions more than once. Permissions are either repaired or they're not. Most of the errors in Permissions are not errors but notifications that permissions have been changed. Also there are spurious errors.+

Disk Utility > Repair Disk, on the other hand may take multiple passes to fix a file system error. In either case, Verifying after Repairing will only come up with the same message the repair came up .

Never mind I see it was FCE. Are you installing from DVD?
  1. Go to /Applications/Utilities/Console and launch it.
  2. Copy and paste the output around that installs failure.

If it was mine and I had everything backed up with either Time Machine or a clone, I'd do a clean install and in Setup Assistant choose to port over your apps.

Or, you can do as Console suggests and contact the Application Store because there seems to be an authorization issue.

Re: Unable to Install Applications on Mac OS X Lion

I just did a clean install yesterday of Lion at the instruction of Apple Care. I did have to download Lion as my machine iMac 21" came with Snow Leopard but was eligible for the Lion upgrade free.

So unless the download was corrupt I can't imagine that's the trouble.FYI I can't imagine as I've only had this machine like no more than 4 months.
