Hi,

I tried to update to the latest release on my PPC iMac running 10.4 but found that TaskCoach 1.3.28 reports an error on application launch. I backed off to something like 1.3.14 which runs fine. Please let me know if you need more information or if there's something I can do to resolve this myself.

TIA,
jwq.

  • Starting with 1.3.23 (IIRC), OS X 10.4 is not supported any more. I think PPC will follow some day; I can't test on hardware I don't have...

    That 1.3.28 is not "supported" would be consistent with the error message I receive. I'm not sure why you're not compiling against 10.4 :-(

    The download page http://www.taskcoach.org/download_for_mac.html still states
    "Platforms supported: Mac OS X Tiger/10.4 (Universal) and newer." That's why I expected it to run. So if this is no longer true then the page needs to be updated.

     
  • Yes, I'll update the page. Task Coach working on 10.4 was out of pure luck. I don't have any (working) PPC Mac to run 10.4 on; I build the bundle on a 10.5 Mac Mini and when this one dies I'll have to build it on 10.7 on my Air, which is not feeling well itself...
