Ive got a copy of vectorworks 2008 that ive installed on my mac running osx 10.8.2. The installer for vectorworks 2008 is a power pc application (but the actual vectorworks software isnt) so it can run but cant be installed.
So as a work around i installed it onto an old machine, and then copied across the application folder from user/name/applications and put it on the new machine.
This all worked fine and the program runs, but it needs an update to the latest service pack to add a couple of features, i downloaded it but of course the service pack installer is a power pc app
What i was wandering is would the same technique (ie. installing it on an old machine and copying it across) work for the service pack ?
Are the service packs installed to the application folder or are they installed to the system files ?
