Did you get my answer?

Expert:  David replied 4 years ago.

Yes, I need to be notified and type my reply, sorry for the delay.

The minimum system requirements are Mac OS X 10.7.4

You should update using the App Store to Mountain Lion 10.8

App Store should be in your Applications folder.

Please get back to me if you have password XXXXX or any other questions.

Kind regards,
