Mac OS X 10.4.7 Special Report: CS2 apps (Photoshop, etc.) not launching -- potential fix

Several readers have reported an issue where they are unable to launch various Creative Suite 2.0 (CS2) applications -- including Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. -- on Intel-based Macs after updating to Mac OS X 10.4.7.

This problem appears to be caused by the presence of Unsanity's Application Enhancer (currently at version 2.0.1) in some cases.

The solution is to remove Application Enhancer via one of the two following methods:

  • Open System Preferences and find, then click the APE Manager Preference Pane. Choose the Uninstall option under the Information tab.
  • Re-download the Application Enhancer installer, then launch it and select the "Uninstall" option.

Mail.app unable to connect to servers -- solution Several users have reported an issue where Mail.app is unable to connect to POP and IMAP mail servers after applying the Mac OS X 10.4.7 update.

  2. Click on the "Network" pane
  3. Select your current connection method (e.g. AirPort, etc.) and click "Configure" (you may already be at the configuration screen)
  4. Click the "Proxies" tab
  5. Uncheck the "SOCKS Proxy" option from the "Select a proxy server to configure:" menu
  6. Click the "Apply Now" button
