I just downloaded the Mac C++ compiler installer (m_cproc_p_11.1.088). If I mount the disk image, it verifies correctly. If I then double click on the installer, I first get a message, "The package will run a program to determine if the software can be installed" If I then click continue, I get a pop up:
Could not run startup script
Error while executing the startup script. Make sure that you have write permissions to /tmp, /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/ and it's sub folders.
My only option then is to click "Close".
I am running the installer from an admin account.
I have tried a few things.
1) From the command line, I did:
sudo open /Volumes/m_cproc_p_11.1.088/m_cproc_p_11.1.088.mpkg
and I got exactly the same error.
2) I created a completely new admin account, switched to that and tried to install from there...
and got exactly the same result.
3) I tried to reboot the machine, just in case something was screwed up....no change.
Any other suggestions?
I do have xcode installed. I am running 10.6.3 on a MacBook Pro. What is wrong with the installer?
