Hour 4. Installing New Applications > Task: Downloading and Installing Software

Task: Downloading and Installing Software

Although there’s no single installation technique for all software that’s available for the Mac OS X, you’ll see in this hour that there are two common methods. Obviously, you should read the documentation that comes with your software if you want to be certain of the results, but for those who are anxious to double-click, this section offers a basic description of what to expect.

If you would rather purchase your software from a mail-order or in-store vendor, just make sure to read the product information to ensure compatibility with Mac OS X, or with Mac OS 9 if you need to run the application in Classic mode, as discussed in Appendix B, “Running Classic Applications.” The installation process for disc images (explained later in the hour) still applies.
