in OSX86, insert your JAS DVD. Open it, and browse to System -> Installation -> Packages. Right click iCal.pkg and select "show package contents." Open the Contents folder then double click Archive.pax.gz. When this is done, there will be on your desktop an archive.pax and a folder called Archive. Open the Archive folder. Open the Applications folder. copy the iCal in there to your Applications folder, replacing the broken one already there. Answer yes if it asks about replacing newer files.

Anyone else having this problem? I followed these directions and still have the same problem. I also tried trashing the iCal in applications as well as the package in the receipts folder (as was suggested somewhere else on google). I have not been able to run iCal since I installed 10.4.8 on my SSE2 AMD machine, so there are no preferences files to delete. I also tried logging on as another user and it doesn't work there either. I saw a reference to problems with iCal after installing MS office 2004, which I have installed. Any ideas? Thanks.

Actually the trick by Bill worked for me. Thanks Bill! I can't believe it was so simple.

 

 

I gave up trying to get iCal to run and used a copy I had from tubgirl's release instead.

PM me if you are interested in getting a copy. It works 100%.

... or the easier solution is:

 

highlight iCal, cmd-I (Get Info), select "Open using Rosetta", close Get Info, start iCal :P

 

 

Thanks for this solution bro, works fine :)
