Help, I'm getting a message that says "Could not find the application program that creatted the document ..." then a window comes up giving me choices of applications to use. My second problem is that I get a message saying "xxxx Could not be launched because it could not be found".

I've rebuilt the Desktop and used Norton Utilities 6.x and still haven't solved the problems.

Everthing was working fine until reccently, and no I don't know which new app, extention, or Beta prgram I ran to screw things up.

I've a g4 450 mp, 128MB, 9.1

Thanks in advance

Running Mac OS X since Public Beta.

I'm not an expert but the first problem is not really a problem or you select the program that you wanne use for the file that you open or you open the file from the program that you wanne use it in and the second problem I don't know but I think your file is corupted , I think the solution to that problem is reinstal or download that program again I is possible that I'm wrong but I don't know an other solution.
