I have a 2010 Mac mini 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 8 GB DDR3

This answer was rated:

I have a 2010 Mac mini 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 8 GB DDR3 with OSX 10.8.5 and a macbook 2.1 GHz Intel 2.1 GHz Intel core Duo 4 GB SDRAM with OSX 10.7.5 Neither machine will load the software that came with a VGC Time Capsule It is Time Capsule Dual-Band 802.11n Wi-Fi Disc Version 1.1 Apple copyright 2009
When i attempt to load the software in either machine I get the Yellow Caution symbol over the hard drive image, and a Requirement that OSX 10.4.x or Later is needed. The Time Capsule IS working completely wireless to the macBook, and ethernet to the back of my router/ hub as is the mini. Its was empty with one file DATA. Ive loaded 4000+ songs from my iTunes, but I cannot change the password, rename the device, etc. Any Help would be appreciated, Thanks, Bob
It is most likely PowerPC based software which will not run on Machines after Lion 10.7. Is that an Apple Time Capsule not familiar with VGC?

apple time capsule all mac machines. as far as i know this disc is intended to run on mac. at mid install it stops, with alert of Mac OSX V10.4.x or later needed both macs are running OSX 10.8.8 and OSX 10.7.5

Ok it will not run on machines after Lion, but you do not need that software just go to Applications / Utilities and open Airport Utility. That is how you manage your Time Capsule
