Using Shockwave on an "Intel" Macintosh (Update April 2008)
If your Macintosh is an "Intel" computer (how to find out), Shockwave may not work straight away. This is a known issue and easily solved. The instructions below the double line are for users of Shockwave version 10. Shockwave version 11 has now been released and supports Intel Macs. Please check your version (which version do I have?) and read the appropriate instructions:
Shockwave version 11 users
You do not need to "Open using Rosetta" as shown below (in fact you must unset it). If you are still having problems with Shockwave it is almost certainly because you previously set your machine to "Open with Rosetta". You should untick it.
Shockwave version 10 users
You can either upgrade to Shockwave 11 here or follow the instructions to "Open using Rosetta" as shown below.
From the horse's mouth
If you prefer, Adobe (who make Shockwave) have their own explanation here.
