View Full Version : mach-o, but wrong architecture\cf0 \

this is the cryptic message I get when trying to use SuperDuper! [2.7.1 (91)] to clone my boot drive [OS 10.5.8] to a disk image:

Error loading [...] VirtualPCDiskImagePlugin, no suitable image found.
Did find [...] VirtualPCDiskImagePlugin: mach-o, but wrong architecture\cf0 \

I've checked that feature 3 times, each time with a different storage option - to no avail... same error!

exactly what does the error message mean?
and what does that \cf0 \ (space included) stands for knowing this is not a context where there is a need to escape control chars, nor a twisted M$ Windows path expression?
and, most importantly, how can I get the right architecture?

It means you have an old VPC plugin that isn't compatible with your Intel Mac. You should delete that plugin, emptyyour trash and restart your Mac.

thanks, I'll do just that, even if I fail to understand how this could happen...

This can happen by migrating from a Power PC system to an Intel System with VPC installed (or previously installed).
