app doesn't run on all OS X macs - Mac Programming

I wrote an app that runs fine on my new powerbook. It also runs fine on some other new powerbooks and the silver G4 towers. However it does not run on two of the older powerbooks that we have. The app just doesn't run. When you double click it you see an outline of a window spread out from it but nothing happens. Does anyone know anything that could cause this? I am new to OS X.

    Default app doesn't run on all OS X macs

    I wrote an app that runs fine on my new powerbook. It also runs fine
    on some other new powerbooks and the silver G4 towers. However it
    does not run on two of the older powerbooks that we have. The app
    just doesn't run. When you double click it you see an outline of a
    window spread out from it but nothing happens. Does anyone know
    anything that could cause this? I am new to OS X. I come from a
    windows and linux background. After figuring out the bundle structure
    and now this, linux seems more like windows than OS X in the way
    programs are run. Thanks for any help.

    Perhaps you've linked against a library or used a feature that requires
    a newer system; the older powerbooks have an older system and don't
    support those features.

    But that's just a guess. Just look at the Console and the crash log
    report; you'll see immediately what the problem was. m.
