10.4: Avoid a possible Installer crash Install
Tiger only hintInstaller.app will crash if you tab to the Agree button in the license agreement, then hit the Space Bar to press the button -- it crashes when you get to the last step (after selecting the destination). Also, the text Click install to perform a basic installation of this software package on the volume "VolumeYouSelected." is up and to the left of where it should be.

This assumes you have the "All controls" radio button selected in the Keyboard Shortcuts tab of the Keyboard & Mouse System Preferences panel. You can toggle this setting from anywhere by hitting Control-F7.

To work around this bug, click the button with the mouse and avoid using full keyboard access in this particular spot. I've only confirmed this on Mac OS X.4.3.

Amazing!

I've been running into this for quite some time now and haven't been able to pin it down. This sounds exactly like the same crasher.

Thanks.

I have allways had the "all buttons" selected in Full Keyboard Access and I have allways used the TAB-TAB…TAB-SPACE sequence when installing SW - but I have never had a problem with it, especially a crash has never occured for me…(!)

This only started happening for me about a week and a half ago. I'm not sure what triggered it, but thanks!

I just tested this again with X.4.4, and the text gets pushed up and to the left, but it doesn't crash and instead does the install.

Nevermind. It can still crash with X.4.4.
