Apps will not install on OSX Lion. What do I do?
on May 20, 2012 at 3:39:42 pm

I just purchased an IMAC 27" with an i7 intel. I am now finding that
I cannot install my Final cut Pro Studio because Lion does not support
Power PC. What do I do now and can I downgrade to Snow Leopard?
Thanks

I'm assuming you are trying to load a pretty old version of final cut (because it's built for PPC). Why not get a used copy of FCP7? It'll work better with Lion anyhow.

Thanks for the reply. I was in understanding that FCP7 would not work with Lion either.
Do you say that FCP studio3 will work with lion? Can the imac be downgraded to Snow leopard?

I'm running FCP 7 on my laptop running Lion right now.

In general, downgrading a mac (when it's a new piece of hardware) is a bad idea. Apple routinely releases new firmware that won't work with the older OSs. So it won't boot or whatever. In fact, Zelin just posted something like this a couple weeks ago.

I'd move up to FCP 7. You'll have better luck
