Toast 5 Fail Open In Os10.4.11

Question

I have an old imac (800MHz G4 running 10.4.11) but my toast 5 titanium will not open - gets an unexpectedly quit message instantly.

 

Have tried reinstalling toast. Anyone have a solution? Spin doctor will open.

Don't know if this is the reason, but the presence of any xvid codecs in a Library>QuickTime folder will prevent Toast from launching.

Don't find any such xvid codecs. Still at a loss to understand the problem. Thanks for the idea.

It may be that Toast 5 just doesn't run on OS 10.4. You need version 5.1.2 or later (I believe) to run in any version of OS X. I believe 5.2.3 was that last update to Toast 5. Also, Toast 5's installer didn't work in OS X. As a bit of history Toast 5 was released before the first OS X was available. Roxio enabled OS X support about mid-way through Toast 5's life. But those were very early days and a lot has changed since then.

Well, the box (Toast 5 Titanium) says it was "built for OS-X" and it did work but now does not. Beats me.

OK. Presuming you have one of the later versions of Toast 5 that is supposed to work in the early versions of OSX it does make sense that it should at least launch in OS 10.4. Which version of Toast 5 do you have? Maybe something is corrupted. Try trashing the Toast plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder and then try relaunching Toast. Are you able to reinstall it or drag over a copy from a backup?

 

What are you wanting to use Toast for? Apple's disc burning tools can do most of what Toast 5 can do.
