Question about Apple MacBook Pro Notebook

1 Answer

A lot of issues.

For one, Aol Instant Messenger (mac version) will not install on the mac. When I double click on the aim.bin, I get this message, "Unable to unarchive "aim.bin" into "Downloads". (Error 45-Operation not supported.)"

Special characters such as ♥ will only show up as a wierd bar, not as the heart.

Any way to fix these problems?

(AOL will not help me since I do not have their internet service. I already tried.)

AOL is a POS. If you have a mac you will already have AIM linked to it via an application called ICHAT. Open that application, and fill your details. It IS AIM for Macs. If you do not have ICHAT you can download it for free.

Good luck

    Once you download firefox it comes up in a little folder after the download. You have to take the firefox logo and drag it to your applications folder. Once in there, close the little file it downloaded in and open applications folder. Double click the logo and it should fire up. Once that is done, restart and see if it is in the applications folder when you return. Once it works in there, drag the logo to your dock as a short cut.



    Job done =)

I just signed up with AOL. It says I need to download something extra to chat, but I'm not sure what that is. Any ideas? Also, when and if I do get there, will there be something I can click to invite a...


You can use the standard alone messanger by going to www.aim.com and download the software. Also, you can use instant messaging if you sign into your mail through the website mail.aol.com From there, look for the yellow running man icon on the right. You can then click on that and sign in AIM (it stands for Aol Instant Messaging).

WANT TO INSTALL AIM NOT SURE HOW TO DO THAT


Hello
Go to the official AIM download website (see Resources) and click on the "Download" link at the top of the page. A pop-up window will open that will display the status of your download.
Install AIM. Once the program has finished downloading, a new icon will appear on your Windows desktop. Double-click on this icon to start the installation process. You will have to click through a few prompts for the install to be successful. If you do not already have an AIM username, you will be able to sign up for it during this phase of the process.
Restart your computer. This will ensure that the program was installed correctly, and is the final step of the installation process.
Launch the program. You should now have a shortcut to AIM on your desktop, and you will also have a link to the program in your Windows system tray and the "Programs" section of the "Start" menu.
Good luck

How do you make an aim


Go to www.aim.com and click the link 'Get a screen name' in green letters on the right side of the screen, near 'Mail'. After you create your screen name, either download the latest AIM (I highly recommend it) or just do AIM express. Have fun! vote for me

On AIM - the video chat option we are only able to see ourselves


I would recommend updating to the newest version of AIM nad making sure you are both on the same version. Then If that fails contactAIM support or the tech forums for help, other AIM users most likely have had this issue

I don't want AIM or Instant Messenger to automatically go on when I turn my machine on. What can I do? Also, can I use the video chat with simply AIM?


Normal 0 Go into the messenger and go CLICK on GENERAL and then CLICK on PREFERENCE.
Then under “When I Start My Computer” and remove the check from “Automatically Start Yahoo Messenger”. Then click OK.
It should be similar in other messengers to keep it from starting when Windows starts.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hello my school has blocked all aim resorces. Do you know any way i can get onto aim?


You can usually use AIM on your mobile phone for free. Most mobile phones come with AIM already installed. If you have GMail you can access your AIM buddy list on there and chat just like you were signed in to AIM. There is also a web access version of AIM on their website.
