ALERT - Tenon XTools 1.0.2, 10.0.1, and the PB Apps
The installer for XTools 1.0.2 erased my Applications folder, /etc, /usr, and root home directories, and much more! Other users had experienced such problems with earlier versions, and Tenon promised to re-release the application only after resolving the issue. I installed on Mac OS X 10.0.1 over XTools beta10 when Mac OS X started to fail during the system optimization step.

The Tenon XTools discussion board at has more information about similar problems suffered previously by other users.

[Editor's note: Please see the comments for a response from Tenon; the install issue is particular to those who installed OS X over the PB and then upgraded to 10.0.1; thanks for the clarification, Tenon!]

Xtools circumvents Apple Installer problems
Authored by: Anita on Apr 17, '01 07:14:02PM

The latest Xtools 1.0.2 does not cause any installation problems on a clean install of OS X. The only people who have had problems (just two that we know of including Wolf) had previous (beta) versions of Mac OS X installed before they updated to OS X Final and then further updated to 10.0.1. In cases where people installed Mac OS X on a reformatted partion, the installation of Xtools is flawless, even over a previous beta of Xtools. We have some guidance on our web site about this "dirty install" problem:

Again, we apologize for the Apple Installer's penchant for deleting major directories. We think this is all behind us now and our customers are begining to talk about Xtools itself and not the previous installer issues.
