Each of these links goes directly to a DMG file on Apple’s download servers:

The size of the file varies on which version you choose, the combo updates are obviously larger than the standard updates. If you have any troubles downloading the files, try right-clicking the links to “Save As” or “Download Linked File As” – this is particularly important if you are attempting to download these files from a Windows machine for installation on a Mac OS X machine later.

The Mac App Store is included in the Mac OS X 10.6.6 Update, after installation you will find the blue icon in your Dock.

    What’s the difference between combo pack and the one I installed via my mac’s software update?

    • Manish says:

      Shawn,

      The combo updater will work on all versions of Mac OS X 10.6.

      For example, if you are still using Mac OS X 10.6.3 you can use the combo updater to go directly to 10.6.6 rather than install the updates in between.

      The standard version relies on having the proper subsequent version of Mac OS X installed, in this case 10.6.5.

    I just installed, and now Finder won’t run. But hey, at least I have the App Store. Thanks Steve Ballmer, I mean Jobs. It also killed by boot sector so Linux and Win 7 won’t load either. I’m going to have to yank the hard drive hopefully recover my data and install Linux by itself, which appears to be the only OS worth a doo.

    Mac App Store (10.6.6) is spyware!

    In reality it is a trojan. They tells that it is a system upgrade, but it did not upgrade nothing in the system…
    It just install the Mac App Store on your Mac, and some components that will “call home”.
    The second you launch the Mac App Store it calls home to send back all your personal info and the installed receipts it finds.
    So… Bye bye Apple!!

    I’m using an older version of Mac OS X which is

    System Version: Mac OS X 10.5.8

    How can I update my software to be able to download Mac App Store?

  10. Gary says:

    @ozge

    Your Mac is still running Leopard, you need to purchase Snow Leopard from Software Update. It’s $29

  11. JW says:

    I have the original Snow Leopard install DVD (10.6.0) but need to do a clean install of my MacBook Pro (I’m selling the machine and wish to completely wipe my hard drive). Is it possible to use the combo-update 10.6.6 and do a direct install of the latest version of Snow Leopard, or should I first install the original version and then update to 10.6.6 afterwards?
    If possible, how do I go about such a clean install?
