If you haven't downloaded it before, you can purchase OS X Lion (10.7) for $19.99 (USD) and use the redeem code to download it. It can be installed in VMware Fusion, Parallels or VirtualBox.

Lion works fine as virtual machine - as well as all Mac OS X' since Snow Leopard* - in all of the mentioned apps. VMware/Parallels usually offer a better system integration and better performance though - with the downside that they aren't available for free. To get the OS X Lion installer, check your purchases in your App Store account. If you have ...

I have the same problem - in finder folders that had files in them earlier show as empty later on. I find that a reboot always corrects the finder views, until something causes them to disappear again several hours or even days later. If I force quit finder and relaunch then finder never relaunches so the reboot is the only option.

I noticed Chrome got mentioned. Chrome too give me memory trouble. Especially when I open Google Drive, it just go crazy and eat all the RAM, and subsequently all the swap it can get. Switch to Safari and regularly restart memory leaking applications. There's no other way round.

I know EXACTLY what you are referring too... I actually found the answer and it was simple! I didn't like when I opened my finder, that all of my recent documents were listed there...especially since my work computer is not facing in a favorable position to people walking behind me. I didn't need a long list of my resumes and cover letters showing for ...

I've been having the same issue today and I believe I've resolved this (Yosemite). I've got my local user (user.name) and my domain user (domain.local\user.name). I've added to OD auth correctly without issue. When I attempt to log in with my domain user (domain.local\user.name) it rejects me for an invalid password. I tried out the password for my local ...

You should be able to login to Downloads for Apple Developers with your Apple ID. From there, search for "Xcode 4." You should see "Xcode 4.6.3" at the top of the list. It includes the iOS 6.1 SDK and OS X 10.8 SDK. This is the last version of Xcode supported by OS X Lion (10.7.x) and was released on June 13, 2013.

This is not a permission problem at all! Nothing you do with permissions will fix it because the permissions are already set to read/write, which is as permissive as they can be. It’s an owner problem; the system is confused about who owns the file, and cannot resolve the quandary. Add yourself as a new owner, give yourself read/write permissions, and ...

Why not use ⌘+fn+F12? It works on for me.

After downloading the Xcode.dmg, double-click the image to mount it (if it's not already mounted automatically). You will find a pkg file inside. .pkg is the file extension for software packages in OS X (and iOS). If you double-click the package the related app "Installer" will open it and you may install it. Later Xcode images (e.g. Xcode 4.6.3 - also for ...

Yes, you can install it in /Applications.

I had the problem that only the shell itself (zsh in my case) failed to show the correct computer name. Simply restarting the shell solved it: exec /bin/zsh

Yes, the migration assistant can migrate from an older version. However it cannot migrate from a newer version. Backup of 10.9 --> System on 10.10 works Backup of 10.10 --> System on 10.9 does not work

From your link… can you upgrade from osx 10.5.8 to OS X Lion Not by using this method. You must be running 10.6.6 Snow Leopard to be able to run Lion by using this method. This method is a redeemable code for the Mac App Store to where the OS will begin to download immediately. To get Snow Leopard, you must purchase it the DVD (search "OS X ...

You don't need to put anything in there if you're working locally, just click 'Open Directory Utility' [which you did, based on your second pic] Then… Edit menu - Enable root user [only available once you unlock Directory Utility, which it looks like you did] ...I would wonder why you need root unlocked - you really don't need it in OS X, you can sudo ...

Yes, indeed, the "Log out after 60 min" had a check mark. That was the problem. I was just lucky that the OS was unable to Quit certain applications that do not use the built-in Autosave feature, but many times I found myself at the Login screen when coming back to the puter.

You should be able to boot to your external Lion disk by holding option/alt at startup to bring up the boot selector, and then selecting your external disk. Once booted, I would then proceed to erase the internal disk with Disk Utility and create a single partition, selecting GPT as the partition type and Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as the format type. If ...

Use a different browser. Apollo seems to work.

Based on your "diskutil list" it looks like your partition map is gone. This will most likely warrant data recovery options. You could try using Data Rescue (http://www.prosofteng.com/datarescue4/ or something like it) and Target Disk mode to scan it yourself - if you have a second Mac. But if the disk is physically failing (which it appears to be), the ...

disk0 - visible in the pic and the output - is the recovery system you booted to in Internet Recovery Mode and it's no real disk in the sense of a HDD or SSD. All other disks (disk2 - disk11) are related to this recovery system. Essentially your HDD, the SATA-controller or the SATA-cable is dead. You may open your MacBook Pro with this guide or another one ...

If you happen to have a thunderbolt cable and a spare mac you can try your luck with target disk mode. Target Disk Mode is a feature that allows a Mac to act as an external hard drive. Connect the two computers with a FireWire or Thunderbolt cable. Start up the computer to be used as a disk in target disk mode: If the computer is off, start it up ...

I did chflags -R nohidden name_of my directory and it did not work. Then I clicked on the apple icon on the top left left, went to "Force to quit", selected Finder, confirm clicking on the "relaunch" icon and it works.

I'm running CS5 on Yosemite right now, (Photoshop is running right now, in fact,) and have had CS5 run on OS Xs all the way back to Snow Leopard or earlier:

See adobe.com for details: Adobe Photoshop CS5, CS4, and CS3 were also tested with Mac OS X Mavericks and there are currently no known major issues. So it's probably safe to assume that CS5 will work with 10.7.x as well. To be on the safe side, you should make a full system backup before upgrading and test CS5 afterwards (before you start to use it for ...

If you don't have them in your Purchases in the Mac App store, you can order Lion and Mountain Lion directly from Apple for USD $19.99 each. http://store.apple.com/us/product/D6106Z/A/os-x-lion http://store.apple.com/us/product/D6377Z/A/os-x-mountain-lion

I was also sick of mackeeper but it was not uninstalling itself from my mac. I saw a review recommending Adwaremedic software. http://www.adwaremedic.com/index.php I downloaded it and all the mess is gone from my mac. Clean, no pop ups, no mackeeper, the stupid is gone from my computer. It is free, no registration, and donation supported.

The ics file has an organizer line. Per the rfc2445 standard, Section 3.5 - Security Considerations, non event owners are NOT allowed to modified the event... hence the reason for getting the CalDAVWriteEntityQueueableOperation error. Removing the entire ORGANIZER line from the ics file before importing fixes the issue. Per the standard, if the event is ...

Without - no, not unless your cam manufacturer makes something Mac-specific [but then again, that wouldn't truly be without, just free]. With - I'd recommend Webcam Settings 8 bucks from the App Store. It's what turned my Logitech from a barely functional lump balanced on my monitor into something actually useful.

In 10.10 I use the following series of actions attached to a keyboard shortcut using BetterTouchTool (although it should work for older versions on OS X): Send Ctrl+Cmd+F to Mail (tells Mail.app to exit fullscreen) Wait 3 seconds (waits for app to properly exit fullscreen - adjust to your system's speed) Send Cmd+O to Mail (opens selected message in new ...

There is a very easy way to do this: Set a shortcut for Spotlight and use it. I set my spotlight shortcut to Control + Spacebar (so it doesn't interfere with other apps — especially the Adobe CC app pan & zoom tools). When I'm in some app and type that key combo I get a Finder window in the same Space I'm already in (not Finder Space) and the cursor ...

That DL article works for me on 10.10 - Do you have another browser or computer to do the download? If not, you might have to go to a friend's or Apple Store and get help directly from the genius bar. There is no charge for in-store help and you probably can resolve this with a USB stick and a different browser/OS combination. Also, I've put a link to the ...
