    Hey Everyone,

    I am trying to open a .sea file, and for some reason, its just opening script editor instead of extracting. Any ideas?

    OSX 10.4.8

    Thanks,
    tc

    Extracting? What the hell is a sea file anyway?

    If you have another application that you know it should be opening with, just right click the file and use "open with" to open it.

    Well.. its supposed to be self extracting... there really isn't a program that opens it.

    Ahh, if you want to see what I'm talking about go to epson and see their tiger drivers for all in one printers.

    In 10.3 and 10.2 they open normally...

    EDIT: clickity click

    Their tiger driver is a .DMG, the OOOOooooooold driver is a .sea(wtf) .hqx ... no one's used a .hqx since the 90's :p

    edit: Hmmmmm, my bad, the dmg is for intel only.

    Already dloaded it... still doesn't open - says it's not compressed, so it won't continue the process...

    why don't they give alternatives :(

    Looks like there's a bit of a feck-up with the file...
    Perhaps you can try contacting them?

    If you have the file, just send it across?

    I refuse to install StuffIt, so can't really try opening the file here.

    Well... the driver is as good as installed now.. I just wish this ibook would open that file extension... If you ever stumble across a fix, please let me know.

    thanks -tc

    Hey, I actually figured this one out and figured I should post the answer here in hopes that it helps someone!

    I was having the same problem described by Techno Child: Epson's self-extracting archive wouldn't open on OS X Tiger.

    I changed the .sea filename extension to .app and this caused it to open itself instead of using the Script Editor.

    Problem solved. But it is funny that Epson distributes a .dmg wrapped in a .sea wrapped in a .hqx.
