I'm brand new her,e so please bear with me if I'm asking stupid questions.
I got IPP 8 working on Windows 7 x64 no problem and with great results.
However, on the Mac I've had no luck installing either IPP 8, or IPP 5.3 (which seems to be the only other version offered on the site for download, unless I'm missing something). I'm on OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Lepoard) and would prefer to stay that way for the time being.
I've taken a peak at the installer scripts for IPP 8 and I see that it wants at least OS X 10.7, so that explains why that won't install. It starts to run the system check app, then crashes for want of _strnlen, which apparently wasn't added to OS X until 10.7. But even if I could get by this crash, I see other scripts in the package checking for >=10.7 -- is there REALLY any reason it can't be installed on 10.6.8? Does anybody know if it's possible to hack the installer to make this work or otherwise manually install IPP 8 on OS X 10.6.8?
And when I try to install IPP 5.3, the "Continue" button remains greyed out and just hangs there until I close the installer. I assume this is because 10.6 is ABOVE the OS versions IPP 5.3 is compatible with.
So I'm stuck in between compatible OSes, and, at least for now, married to OS X 10.6.8 and XCode 3.2.6.
Is there somewhere I can download another version of IPP? Why does it only offer 8 and 5.3? What happened to 6 and 7?
And again, if there's anything I can do to get IPP 8 installed on OS X 10.6.8, that would be ideal. I'd really like to use this product, but cross platform capability is a necessity.
