Spinning wheel on Snow Leopard install
Just got an iMac 21.5 2009. I've dual booted with Snow Leopard and Yosemite. The SL Rosetta offers me use of all my old stuff. I've been using FinderPop since my Pismo and 9.2.2 days (still have it working great.)

I downloaded 2.5.7 to put on my SL partition. It has not mounted in four trys already :-( Tried 2.5.6 and it went into spinning ball mode also. Haven't tried it on Yosemite yet.

PLEASE, any help I love this preference pane.

Ouch. Not sure what could be going on there and I no longer have an SL Mac to try it on. Anyone out there got FP working on SL?

@Joe, did you follow the installation instructions?

Ensure you use Apple's unzipper to unzip the FinderPop zip file as some third-party unzippers do not respect permissions.
Ensure that the System Preferences panel is CLOSED. Quit. Not running. Double-click the FinderPop.prefpane icon. System Preferences will
open and ask if you want to install FinderPop for all users or just you. Choose "All Users" and continue.
On 10.6+, FinderPop "sees" what it was you clicked on in the Finder via the Services subsystem - ensure that you have Folder Actions Setup
enabled: System Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services > Files & Folders > (ensure Folder Actions Setup is checked.)
