I just downloaded Xojo 2016r1 OS X version.
I’m getting an error when starting Xojo: PowerPc applications are no longer supported.
It’s not a Xojo application, it’s Xojo IDE itself !
Tried to download again but still get the error when launching Xojo.
Running OS X El Capitan (10.11.4)
Any idea ?
Taken from (2010): http://www.realsoftwareblog.com/2010/08/future-support-for-powerpc.html
Try to download again. Perhaps your download was corrupted. I’ve seen this a couple of times.
If he’s running El Cap he can’t be using PPC, right?
Something else must be going on.
Try a reboot and reinstall, my friend had this problem when I told him about Xojo a few weeks ago.
If you can’t get it working, let me know and I’ll message him to find out if he did anything else to get it working.
How are you launching it?
Do you have an old version lying around and its being launched by you double clicking a project?
Thanks for your answers, but, just to clarify:
- I know pretty well that PowerPC is not supported but it’s the Xojo IDE which is not launching
- I’m not running a PowerPC version of El Capitan !
- I’m not loading an old project, I just launch Xojo from the application folder.
- I tried downloading once yesterday, twice today, all files are coming from the same url and have same size
I’ll try rebooting later today.
Maybe it would be interesting to have a MD5 checksum displayed on Xojo download page …
I’ll keep you posted later on.
I had the same kind of message pop up a couple times along the years with other programs than Xojo. In every instance re-downloading did the trick.
It would be interesting to compress the offending version and send to Xojo for analysis. Maybe they will find out what happened.
Hi @Sascha S,
This did the trick:
Maybe this will help: https://wiki.umms.med.umich.edu/display/UMHSHELPDESK/MAC+-+PowerPC+Applications+Error+Message
Moving to desktop, launching OK, moved back to Application folder, launching OK.
Many thanks !
Solution: Download the Mavericks installer from the App Store, use Disk Utility to create a USB boot drive. Boot from said drive, do a clean install of Mavericks.
While I jest, I wouldn’t actually recommend that you do, there’s a ton of bugs in El Cap and the best way to make sure your software is compatible is to develop on it
