So, I got Lion at work and was going through the process of installing all my work programs including Adobe Creative Suite 3 (CS3). The install finished without any problems. However, when I tried to update it the Adobe Updater returned immediately saying that there weren't any updates.
Now, I know this isn't true because the last time I installed CS3 it had about 500MB of updates! It turns out that CS3 has reached end-of-life and you can't run the installer anymore. That is, unless you set your clock back to a time before July of 2011.
Problem 1 Solved: set my clock back to January of 2011 and the updater found all the updates it needed.
Near the end of the updates installing I got the message that you see in the image above, "You can't open the application bspatch because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."
To make a long story short, follow these instructions posted by Sergio-PL
1) Open terminal (as user)
2) Type: whereis bspatch
3) Note the location of file (ie. /usr/bin/bspatch )
4) Create directory temp somewhere in your system
5) Download 13.0.1 (and next updates) from Adobe website
6) Mount DMG file
7) In terminal – go to your temp directory (ie. cd /Users/username/temp )
8) Copy AdobePatcher.app to the temp directory ( cp -R /Volumes/PatcherApplication/AdobePatcher.app . ) <– dot at the end is _important_
9) Go to the Adobe's bspatch file location (cd AdobePatcher.app/Contents/Resources/PatcherApplication.app/Contents/Resources )
10) Delete bspatch file ( rm -f bspatch )
11) Create symbolic link to the OS X version ( ln -s /usr/bin/bspatch bspatch )
12) Type ls -l to list files. There should be one line looking like this: lrwxr-xr-x 1 sergio staff 16 21 sie 01:17 bspatch -> /usr/bin/bspatch )
13) Go back to Finder, enter your Temp directory and run AdobePatcher.app. Illustrator should update without any problems
14) Repeat those steps for all futher Illustrator updates
Problem 2 solved: make symbolic links to bspatch in the Illustrator patch app.
