Security Update 2012-001 v1.1 for Snow Leopard

Apple has released an updated version of Security Update 2012-001 to v1.1, which resolves the Rosetta issues in the first release that caused many PPC based applications to either crash or not run at all. If you have been experiencing problems with apps like Microsoft Office, Photoshop, Quicken, crashing after installing the security update, downloading version 1.1 will fix those problems.

Security Update 2012-001 v1.1 is now available for Mac OS X v10.6.8 systems to address a compatibility issue. Version 1.1 of this update removes the ImageIO security fixes released in Security Update 2012-001.

The revised update is recommended for all Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard users, even if you haven’t encountered problems with PowerPC application compatibility.

You can download the new version of Security Update 2012-001 from Software Update, or directly from Apple as a standalone installer.

    Thank you…..This worked for me. You will need a second PC or Mac machine with a USB or an external HD drive in order to download in this second device the dmg file. Then run it on your Mac computer.
