Mac OS X v10.6: About incompatible software
Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard is designed to protect your Mac from certain incompatible software that can quit unexpectedly or cause other issues in Mac OS X v10.6.
When you install Snow Leopard or migrate to Snow Leopard, known-incompatible software is moved to a folder named Incompatible Software on your hard drive.
Snow Leopard also prevents known-incompatible software from opening.Â If you see an "Incompatible software" message, contact the software's vendor or visit their website for a later, compatible version.
Software restricted during installation and migration
During installation, Snow Leopard moves known-incompatible software to a folder named Incompatible Software at the root level of the hard drive. If you see this folder on your Mac, use the table below to check with the software vendor to see if any Mac OSÂ XÂ v10.6 Snow Leopard-compatible updates are available.
After installation if you try to open ("launch") software known to quit unexpectedly, Snow Leopard will prevent the application from opening and you will receive a dialog notifying you of the incompatibility. If you see such a dialog on your Mac, use the table below, then check with the software vendor to see if any Mac OSÂ XÂ v10.6 Snow Leopard-compatible updates are available.
During installation, your printing and scanning software will be upgraded to Snow Leopard-compatible versions if upgrades are available. Incompatible software may be removed during the upgrade.
