10.4: Fix PowerPC apps that fail to launch on Intel Macs
Authored by: JELaVallee on Sep 15, '06 08:58:15AM

Steve,

Do this:
1) Open Applications -> Utilities -> Activity Monitor
2) In the toolbar, select "All Processes" on the drop-menu
3) In the toolbar, type in "translated" in the search box
4) In the process list, you should see a process called "translated" owned by the "root" user.
5) Click on the "translated" process
6) In the toolbar, click on the "Quit Process" button

It will prompt you for your password (security and what not).

Once the process is killed, you should be able to open the non-launching PowerPC app (Word, Excel, Photoshop, etc).

Alternatively, I've gotten rid of this problem by removing the 3rd party System Prefs plugin Application Enhancer since I no longer use WindowShades and that fixes the problem for good.

cheers,
Etienne

Unfortunately remove APE improves, but does not fix the problem. See this thread (with a reply from the Unsanity guy): 10.4: Another fix for non-launching PowerPC apps on Intel
