One user tried to install iWork 08 on a Mac Pro running Tiger. After installation, none of the applications worked. The applications crashed right after we tried to open them. Here is part of the crash report.

I found some sources suggesting possible causes for this problem. It could be caused by 3rd party spell checker or corrupted system cache. There’s no spell checker installed, so I downloaded Onyx (free) to delete the system cache. After cleaning up and I rebooted the computer. iWork finally started to work. Yeah!
