Help! I am currently installing WP Mac on my new iBook. Have used it previously on several
Macs. The installation went off without a hitch except for the splash screen. Everytime I
click on the installer (WP4 Splash Screen 1.0.2) it takes me to the Script Editor and if I then
click run it gives me the message "<<script>> doesn't understand the <<event>
AkuaAkuS>>". I found a similar message from J Busch in the archives. The response from J
Busch says to set the script to run in OS 9 by going to Get Info and checking the run in OS
9 box. I don't see any such box on my Get Info screen associated with the splash screen
installer. What am I doing wrong?
I got around the problem by copying the English (USA) file on my desktop G4 and placing
it in the WordPerfect folder on my iBook. Works fine now but I really want to know why I
cannot get it to work following the steps outlined in the WP4 Splash Screen 1.0.2 ReadMe.
I'm running OS 10.4.3 on a current model 14 inch iBook (purchased in August 2005).
