How do I Install Reason 3.0 on Mac OsX

Post by gizemsiz » 16 Dec 2009, 18:38

I need help on this: I am trying to install Reason 3.0 on Mac Pro, once I put the first Cd in, mac recognizes it, sees the content but does not give me any option to run the program. I used the same program (Cds) on other PCs and it worked just fine. Any advice would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Reason 3.0 is is not a universal binary, upgrade to 4 ad that will sort it out (4 is far better amyway)

thanks Fatnurse, actually it is a very good idea to upgrade, but does this mean 3.0 will never install on Mac OsX?
thanks.

Universal Binary means an application contains both PowerPC and Intel code. Your Mac Pro is a newer Intel-based machine. Reason 3 is so old that it only contains PowerPC code and nothing that your Intel Mac can use.

So the issue is not Mac OS X, it's the CPU. On the plus side, the Mac Pro is insanely fast, so it's worth upgrading Reason to accommodate.
