Okay, I've looked into this. It's a proper extension, not a
I tried Zotero Word for Mac Integration 3.5.7, which installs
cleanly but doesn't work at all, not even the preferences dialog
comes up, probably because the dlyb it uses is Intel only (??), and
Zotero 188.8.131.52, which works (somehow) but produces the install
error message you mentioned. I use Word 2004 but have never used
Zotero or anything like it. I have no idea what's going on. Maybe
someone with more experience in this field can help.
will work with TenFourFox. The problem is the Word for Mac plugin.
As Chris correctly points out, the dylib that comes with it has no
PowerPC fork, so since it cannot run, the TenFourFox browser addon
cannot talk to it. I don't think there is any way we can solve this
problem. Sorry. :(
One final note: there is a bug here, but it's Zotero's, not ours. Their Word for Mac plugin does not indicate the architecture, so TenFourFox will treat it as universal and try to install it. This, then, fails when it actually tries to initialize itself. If they change their install.rdf to indicate it is Intel only, TenFourFox will properly complain and refuse to install it in the first place.
The Zotero 4.0 extension is platform-agnostic, so it has no such issue.
Many thanks for looking at that so thoroughly. Will you pass this on
to Zotero? I'll do so anyway. It'd be good if they could fix it, as
I'm now fairly heavily committed to Zotero, with a project deadline
coming up fast.
