Installing the Eve3 Framework
April 4, 2006 5:56 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to install the Eve3 framework on a Powerbook G4 in order to run the Magic Bullet Suite 2.1 plug-in for Adobe After Effects Pro 6.5. I have the downloaded framework file, but when I copy it to the Frameworks folder, the UNIX Eve3 executable file changes into a document, rendering the thing non-functional.

All the other frameworks in the Hard Drive Library have lots of aliases in them, but Eve3 doesn't when I drag it over from the desktop. The installation instructions say copy the framework to /Library/Frameworks/. Does copy mean I can't drag it? Does it have to be done in UNIX/Terminal and if so, what are the commands? Is this the frameworks folder in the System Library or the Hard Drive's Library? I also have another file, the Eve3 Carbon Library. Where does that go?

To fix the executable turning into a document problem
  1. select the file and hit command-C to copy it
  2. open the Terminal and type chmod +x then a space, and then paste. You'll see the path to the file appear -- easier than typing it out huh?
  3. hit Enter
You just changed the document into an executable!

Are you copying the whole Eve3.framework folder or just the document inside?

Response by poster: The whole framework. I've since found the whole framework and copied it to the Frameworks folder of the System Library. I still have the Carbon Library, but am not sure where it goes (I opted for the Eve3.frameworks folder). All said, I'm not even sure what the framework does--it it the dongle driver or a dongle substitute?

Response by poster: I successfully converted the files into executables--thanks for the tip. How to you Force Quit in UNIX?
