Default Why can't I get NetBookBootMaker to run? - 11-20-2009, 12:31 AM

I've been trying for days now, I've used two different Macs and both latest versions of NBBM. I download the zip file, unzip to my desktop.
When I click the icon to run, it appears in the dock for a few seconds then closes again.
I'm sure I'm missing something really obvious but I can't work it out.

I had the same problem with my macbook pro...
i'm not sure if you tried yet but rebooting may get it working again... i had to try older copies then reboot for mine to work... not sure if this is an actual fix but it worked for me...
it seemed very strange to me but it kept giving me the error messages when it wouldn't load up.

Thanks David but the reboot trick didn't work. So far I've tryed it on the G5 at work and my G4 at home (running 10.4.11 very slowly) always with the same results. I'm always logged in as the administrator. I don't get any error messages, just the icon in the dock for a few seconds, then nothing.....

Uh..G4 and G5 are PowerPC platforms. You probably need an Intel Mac to make NBM work.
