10.5: Run Spore in OS X 10.5.2
Authored by: ejensen on Sep 10, '08 02:21:50PM

I did something similar by copying the installer from the DVD to my Desktop, and then opening it up ("Show Contents") to find the appropriate .plist and change the version number. I also had to mess with the file permissions to let me make the changes. I then just ran the modified installer from the Desktop. I had to do similar changes on the application post-install. I have the Developer Tools installed, so I just used the plist editor to make the changes.

Does anyone know how to run Spore on a non-admin account? I can only get it working on my admin account. When I try on a non-admin account, I get an error "Cannot contact the license server". I would rather not have the kids on my account.
