    When I try to install the latest fetch (5.3) on my new imac (10.5.4), the error message I see is that I don't have permission to replace all the items needed. I have reset the permissions on the old fetch so everyone has read & write. What am I missing?

    Help please,

    Hi Carla,

    Please try doing the following:

    * Make sure you have quit the old version of Fetch so that no copies of Fetch are running.
    * Open your Applications folder.
    * Drag the old copy of Fetch to the Trash.
    * Then drag the new copy of Fetch to the Applications folder.

    Please let us know if you are still having a problem installing the latest Fetch after trying this.
