My guess is you have some xvid codec(s) in one of your Library>Quicktime folders. Remove those (use perian instead) and Popcorn should launch. Also, be sure to download the most recent Popcorn 3 update.

I also paid a lot of money...

I have installed it in my applications folder and when I double click it, it does nothing.. it won't open.

I do not have and stuff in my quicktime folder that would affect this from running. I had popcorn 2 running just fine and was happy, I bought 3 and installed it from the original CD and put it in the applications in the Popcorn folder.

 

I deleted the popcorn folder with 2 and 3 in it and had to reinstall from the CD

I think this is a problem. I believe that the software put something into the logic board so that when I deleted 3 and reinstalled it, it now knows that this is the second installation and will not allow me to run it.

 

Other than that I don't know why it won't run, I'm running a 17" Mac Book Pro 3.1 with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz prosser and Lepord 10.5.8

 

And where is the free upgrade, looks like its $15.00... that's ridiculous.

Make certain you have downloaded and installed the latest Popcorn 3 update. Popcorn 3 preceded OS 10.5 so the update is needed for compatibility with your OS.

Try restarting your Mac while holding down the Shift key and then go to Roxio's software updates page and try the download again.

Hhmmm.. I haven't encountered this problem.. I am using MacBook Air, though. But I guess it has no difference to Pro. Popcorn 3 works perfectly on my end until now. I will posts right away if anything unusual happen.
