I Have power mac G5 Processor and I have been using TFF for quite a while with no problems. I have been able to update to all of the new versions without problems. However, I am now unable after many attempts to download the new version 24. The new version shows up on my download list, but when I click on it, it begins unzipping and I then receive a box indicating Error 1 "unable to unarchive because operation not permitted" . Any idea as to what I should do? Am I doing something wrong. I really like and appreciate TFF, and I would like to use the new version.

    What are you unzipping it with?

    Thank you for your reply. It appears to be unzipping with something called BOMArchiveHelper.

    I also noticed the name archive utility above the error box.

    Even though the error message is misleading, "Operation not permitted" may indicate that the zip file is damaged, usually when it wasn't downloaded completely. 24.2.0 for G5 is 33.194.415 bytes (right-click on file in download list, "Show in Finder", then "Get Info").

    Thank you for your reply, Chris. I believe you are correct in your analysis. I have attempted to download TFF umpteen times, even using different mirrors. However, the download gets to anywhere between 3 and 14 MB, and the download stops and the unarchiving(unzipping) begins. That is when I get the error message.
    Therefore it appears something is preventing the complete file from being downloaded. Any idea as to what else I might try? Thanks for your assistance.
