    What are the things you are downloading? If they are applications that end (.exe), they are windows applications and will not run in OSX.

Can't open Skype error 1712


Hi please click on your apple icon top left, click on "Force Quit", then Force Quite Skype if it's in the List.


Open Your Macintosh HD, usually top right, and go to your Applications folder, find and open your "Utilities" folder, now open "Activity Monitor", now you'll see a list of items, scroll through the list, if Skype is in the list, select it then in the top left of the box click on the "Force Quit" button.

Try Skype again, if this doesn't work try option 3


Download AppCleaner open it and then at the same time open your Applications folder where place your pointer over the Skype icon, and drag onto AppCleaner, once the delete button is active, click delete. This will delete all Skype files from your system.

Now go to Download Skype for Desktop and click the "Get Skype For Mac" button, install this new version of Skype and your done.

Happy Skype-ing, I hope this fixes your problem :-)

Installed pro tools 8 on macbook pro. when i try to open pro tools it says the hardware cannot be found. mbox2 is connected but the usb light is not on.

I had this problem as well... If this is a 2011 macbook pro you have os 10.6.7 which is not supported by avid at this time. We actually need to down grade to 10.6.6. You installation cd with your macbook pro is 10.6.6, so you'll need to install that, then go to the avid website and download pro tool le 8.0.5. Everything should work fine just don't upgrade to 10.6.7 until it has been approved by avid. If you need detailed steps look at the avid forum for pro tools. Step to uninstalling and installing the os can be found on Do not have your mbox plugged in when you install pro tools. I hope this helps!!!

Download tata indicom 1*usb modem installer for macbook pro

TATA Indicom's installation was pretty easy as they provide the modem
drives for mac. But the guys from Indicom may try hard to convince you
that Plug2Surf does not work and mac and you need their dialer to
connect to the internet.

1. Download the Mac Drivers for Qualcomm CDMA MSM modem.
2. The zip file you downloaded has to be unzipped. You'll see two
files inside, one for the Newer Intel x86 Macs and other one for the
Older PowerPC Macs. Open the appropriate installation (.pkg) file.
(Note : Unplug the device before opening the file.)
3. Click Continue.
4. In the next window, "Continue" after the reading the license and
then click "Install" .
6. Now open System Preferences > Network. You'll see "Qualcomm CDMA
Technologies MSM" on the left side bar (or it pops up a window, that
it has found it). Click on it.
7. Type Telephone No #777 , Account Name and Password both internet.
8. Click on "Advanced" > Select Vendor : Generic and Modem : Dialup
Device. Click "OK"
9. Your Done! The "Connect" button should be clickable now and will
connect to the Indicom service once clicked.

Let me give you the link to Asus Support downloads.

(Takes a few seconds for the page to come up. It's on the Asus end)

On this page go to the upper left corner, under the heading -> Download
(In white letters)
In the box that states -> Input Model to Search, left-click once, and keep the mouse cursor in the box. Type -> TUV4X
In the Select Category box underneath it, left-click on the blue down arrow to the right of the box. Left-click on Manual.
Now left-click on the small gray box underneath -> Search Info

On the next page scroll down to the blue -> TUV4X, and click on it. A gray opaque window will come up. Be patient, a window will come up soon asking what Operating System. (Select OS ) Click on Win XP, as it doesn't matter what OS you choose. Now click on Search in the box below.

On the next page you should see Manual in the list, and the file 'tree' opened. Only one file will be shown. Version E765
You may want to click on Global (DLM), I chose Global.
