R14 Installer crashes - Min sys

R14 Installer crashes right after selecting US English language.
Then I realized im on OSX 10.5.8 and the minimum system requirements are OSX 10.6.8 Bah! I'll have to upgrade the OS before I can try out those nice new sculpting tools.
Still, its strange that the installer crashes isn't it?

The installer is using the same compiler, sharing the same code and requires the same system specs as the main app.

If an older OS version tries to execute an app with newer system requirements, it will at some point fail (either because functionality is different, or because libs/api functions are missing) - and that will result in a crash.

If you wanted to avoid that, you had to write an installer that doesn't share code with the main app (twice the effort...) and uses a different and much, much older compiler that runs on all older OS versions, just to display you the message, that you can't install the main app...

Best regards,

wbj
