Installing Microsoft Office 2008 on Snow Leopard

If you’re having trouble putting Microsoft Office 2008 on your new Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) Mac, it may be because you need to install Rosetta, the PowerPC emulator that allows you to run older software that was not designed to run on Intel Macs.

As it turns out, while Office 2008 is completely universal (that is to say, it will work with both PowerPC and Intel Macs), the installer is written only for PowerPC. If you put the disk in your computer without Rosetta, you will probably receive a message about it not being compliant, or you may not see the disk at all. If this happens, simply insert the Snow Leopard disk, and add Rosetta. Then re-insert the Office disk and it should prompt you to use Rosetta to run the installer.

Internal Error 2739 while installing Adobe Creative Suite 3

[simage=107,320,y,right]I ran into this Windows Installer error today while trying to add Adobe CS3 to our computer lab image. The solution is simple. Launch a command prompt (in Vista, you will need an administrative cmd prompt, which you can get by typing ‘cmd’ into the Start menu box and then right-clicking on the cmd icon and choosing “Run as administrator”). Now enter the following two separate commands:

regsvr32 vbscript.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll

You should be all set.
