got a tip about this list when trying to make an irreplaceable old term bank from 1992 work (DOS and old Mac, around System 7 I guess, only) on Mac OS X.

Have any of you successfully tried or used Codeweaver's CrossOver for Mac? Or are there other, better ways to get WP to work on a Mac?

Have you looked in the CodeWeavers compatibility center?:
WP Office 12, Silver
WP Office X3, Gold
Make sure to check in the Tips & Tricks and Forum tabs.
While I didn't manage to make "my" apps work as I wanted to, joining as an advocate helped me get a lot closer to the goal with the foras.
Gudmund, hoping to decipher an easy way to make Termdok work in Mac OS X, preferably with all the CD data on HD.
