  • Apple releases list of incompatible and "restricted" software


    As part of the installation process, Snow Leopard takes unprompted ("automagic!") action to cordon off application programs that have been deemed incompatible with the new OS release.

    There are two categories of offending software: Incompatible and Restricted. "Incompatible" apps are moved to an "Incompatible Software" folder, while "Restricted" programs stay where they are but are prevented from launching.

    Apple has details in a Knowledge Base article. I've excerpted the lists below. More problem apps are sure to follow.

    Incompatible
    • Parallels Desktop 2.5 and below
    • AT&Tís Laptop Connect Card (1.0.4, 1.0.5, and 1.10.0)
    • Norton AntiVirus 11.0
    • launch2net 2.13.0 (for some 3G USB dongles)

    Restricted
    • Aperture 2.1.1 and below
    • Keynote 2.0.2 and below
    • Parallels Desktop 3.0
    • EyeTV 3.0.0 to 3.1.0
    • Ratatouille 1.1

      Um, WTF? I found an updated version in beta. Did I say anything about an Apple conspiracy?

      Anyone else having issues with Safari 4 locking up? Mine locks up every other time I start it, and about 50% of the time while using it.

      I wasn't trying to take a stab at you. It was for other racing people who think that the Apple sky is falling.

      Don't know if anyone has seen this but it's a pretty good list of what does and doesn't work.

      Ok, man. I love the state of denial winblows people are in. People who rip on os x either have never used it or are bitter because they can't afford a mac.

      TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: It's Windows, not "Winblows" (we aren't 8 year olds in a school playground, let's have our letters facing the right way around).

      Fools keep referring to Windows crashing like it's a daily occurence and decide to hop on the "I hate vista bandwagon and therefore I'm cool like everyone else" and "OMFG Windows viruses!!!11one"- if you, <mmi member=""> catch viruses at this day and age where common sense and initiative that's needed to use a computer- why are you here on a computing forum? Why are you jailbreaking? You're most certainly an idiot, so why contradict yourself further by presenting yourself here? Leave.

      Vista had severe shortfalls (when I had it couldn't do what I wanted to do because of the resource issues, made up for in Win 7) the amount of failures have been exaggerated greatly by the media and by Apple's advertising, and the amount of drones who fall for it and come into this thread is shocking (well not really, many of you use the same outdated arguments over and over and over and over and over and over and over again)

      I know!
      Mac Zealots- who's actually used Vista for more than a month and can back up the claims of failure you love to regurgitate from Apple's marketing? Raise your hands.

      Windows Zealots: it's not a massive list, so it isn't that big a deal. Upgrade parts to do what exactly? Game (lol)? The decent thing about macs is that theyre supposed to be sustainable (software wise) for a good bit of time down the line (can't be so sure now, lol). Anyway, the thread has been ruined primarily because of you.</mmi>

      Yes! How dare Apple restrict software with so much legacy code in it that it will crash under the new architecture! How irresponsible of Apple to ensure our computers don't crash.

      They should have let our computers crash uncontrollably, like how Vista first did, and then just blame it on the software developers! Then peons like you and the racer would be happy!

      Really you guys don't know what you're talking about. I'm sure if Apple was to restrict software from running they would certainly put pwnage at the top of the list wouldn't they? They are blocking software that will crash, and probably take the kernel down with it! Tell me, how many Win3.1 programs run in Vista?

      I'm sure Vista runs fine...now. Personally I didn't like it and I stuck with XP. I actually like XP a lot and hope W7 can offer me the peace of mind that XP does. I never really intended this on becoming a MS vs Apple war. I was just trying to illustrate that Snow Leopard has some issues at its introduction just as Vista did. The only difference between the two is that Apple restricted what conflicts with SL so you wouldn't get the crashes that a certain other OS had on its rollout. This has the added bonus of providing an incentive for the software developers to update their software.

      I assure you mgebara that Windows 7 with be well worth it. It's fantastic and I'd dare recommend you try it out. I'm running it on my MacBook and have had zero problems and at least a 30% boost in performance over Vista.

      Has anyone had any freezing problems with Safari in Snow leopard? Cause it's happening to me quite a bit. I installed the beta 3.0 of 1Password and it started freezing but after removing it and reinstalling Safari the issue hasn't gone away. Anyone have any tips on how to fix it?

      I have only used vista SP1 (previous build wouldn't support vista old pc O.O) but then again I use a modified version of vista anyway.

      I have run the win7 beta and I do like it and I already have a key generated for it when it comes out (love my MSDN account )

      No and I think no one has answered you because this is not the place to discuss Safari. Please go to an appropriate forum.

      I really couldn't give a crap what os you decide to use. If you are a masochist and enjoy winblows then have at it.
