    Using OS 10.4.6, I can't get the .dmg file to mount and uncompress. It keeps giving me the error, "Broken Pipe". I have tried to download several times, and keep getting the same result. I can download the update on a 10.3 machine and it works fine. Any Ideas???

    Hi,

    Try this:

    * If you're using Safari to download Fetch, choose Empty Cache from the Safari menu.
    * Throw out all the Fetch .dmgs you've downloaded so far. * Restart your Macintosh
    * Re-download and try to open the Fetch dmg.

    Let us know if this does not fix the problem.

    Thanks,

    No. It still gives me the same message. I have downloaded using Safari AND Explorer...no difference in the result. I'm sure it is not your .dmg file, but something in my OS that is causing it...I was hoping it was something you had heard about and knew the "quick & easy fix".

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, clearing the Safari cache, and restarting, are the quick fixes.

    Failing that, I'd check your disk for problems with First Aid in Disk Utility or some other tool, like DiskWarrior.

    In the meanwhile, if you have a way to move files from your 10.3 machine to your 10.4 machine, you could make an archive of the Fetch application on the 10.3 machine, move the archive to the 10.4 machine, unarchive it, and put it in Applications. It should work fine after you do that.

    Running Virtual PC (v7), I get the "Broken Pipe" error all the time. Temporary fix is to drag the file "VirtualPCDiskImagePlugin.bundle" out of the "Library, Plug-ins, Disk Images" folder to the desktop. Temporary fix because VPC recreates the file the next time it's opened.
    Good luck.
