Your Mac is an Intel-based computer (see About this Mac in Apple menu), but the software to setup the printer was produced a long time ago for Macs that had PowerPC processors. Apple hasn't support PowerPC Macs since OS X 10.4 (Tiger). If you really need supporting utilities for the printer, search for "Lexmark X5100 for Intel Mac" on the web.
Does anything happen at all when you try to open it? For instance, are there any error messages? Have you tired reinstalling it? Would also help to know what Operating System you're running...Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8)? Mac (Lion, Snow Leopard)? Linux?
If you're running the install program from the install disk CD, it may be attempting to create a work folder on the CD instead of your hard drive. I would drag a copy of the install program onto your hard drive first and then launch the copy on your hard drive. Let me know if that solves your install woes... best of luck on this. K
Have you tried taking the files off of the drive and repartitioning and reformatting the drive? How is the drive formatted? Fat? Fat32 or HPFS? What version of Mac OS are you running? It is possible, depending on the version of the OS and the driver for the OS that it can have problems with drives that have partitions larger than 128 GB. It is also a bios limitation with older systems. Look to see if there is an updated driver for the OS X version you are running. Also check in the Disk Utility to see how the drive is partitioned and formatted. If it is going to be a Mac only drive, partition and format it as HPFS. If it is a drive that you will use in Windows as well, use Fat 32 and limit the partitions to 128 GB or less.
You could also try a newer version of OS X like Tiger or Leopard. They are both more stable than older versions and have better support for devices.
What you need to do is, right click your file so you bring up the
options menu of solutions such as Delete, Rename, etc. If you’re
running Vista you should have the option to click “Run as
Administrator” simply click this (ensure you have administrator
priveledges, else wise this may not work) and it’ll pop up asking you
if you’re sure, click yes.
This should launch the installer and fix it! Hope my info fixes your problem..... Thanx.........Dont forget to vote me......
What version of Windows are you installing this on, or is it on a Mac?
Regardless, you can download an updated version of the software here:
It's possible you have an outdated version that won't work with your OS, that's especially likely if you're running Vista. Or you could just have a corrupt version. Either way, the first thing to try is downloading the newest version for your OS and installing that. Let me know if you still get an error message when trying this (and what that error message is).
