I installed it in my user library too, OS 10.4.11, Intel, and it works. 
But when I installed it in my user library on a G4 Powerbook running 
10.3.9, it didn't work there. Since you have the same OS I have on my 
Intel, that leaves the G4 in common. It might be an incompatibility with 
that.

One difference though is that TextEdit on my Powerbook does not dim PDF 
files, I can choose them. However, none of them will open and TextEdit 
throws an error about incompatible files.
