I had the same problem, and here is the solution. You need to insert the Snow Leopard disc again and load the application "Rosetta" which is included separately on the disc. Once loaded, go to your Revolution application and click on it but don't open it. While it is highlighted, go to top finder menu and select the "Get Information" under "File". On the window that opens you will see the information for the Rev application and then you check the box for "use Rosetta". Once you do that it will open as it once did by double-clicking on any of your Rev. documents.
