Try a drag and drop of the offending icon with Shrinkwrap - it has less trouble with identifying content (imho)

Well, you did not say it was a screenshot... it is in PICT format; you can open it in Photoshop on OS 9 and save it as a JPG or convert it, all you need is here:

TDM means that it needs to be run on a pro tools TDM system - if you dont have a pro tools TDM system the plugins not going to work because it runs on the hardware. thats probably why you are having problems with it

not sure if u are aware - just throwing that out there ;) good luck

You most likely had this stuff zipped up on a non-mac at one point in time and the file is missing some info (the creator app) so it shows it as a PC file, we have discussed this many times here, you can fix it with the following utility:

But you still need to know the correct info. which you can find from a working plugin

Also, you can read all this to explain the world of mac files

rather simply an uncomplete file download ;)
