Blender 2.49 broken!

I am running blender 2.49b on my MAC OS X 10.5.8. I downloaded it from and it worked fine until suddenly it started having problems. When I open blender a pink rectangle appears on screen and then blender quits and I get the error message “Blender quit unexpectedly”. I have no idea what caused this and I am wondering if anyone knows how to fix this or if they have had this problem themselves. I have other versions of blender that work properly so I don’t think that it is my computer causing this.

Here’s a quick fix: install Windows :stuck_out_tongue:

In all seriousness though, have you tried re downloading the installation? Also, are there any driver updates for your specific video card? I’m not sure how drivers work for Mac so I can’t say this will work for sure but that’s what it sounds like is causing the issue.
