have. If it has an Intel processor, you will need to install
Sheepsaver. See the Links section of this list's web page.
If your Mac has a PowerPC processor, you will need to install "Classic."
As regards buying WP, I'm not sure why you did that, as it is freely
downloadable. Again, please see the Files section of the group's web
site. There are links for several sites from which you can download
WP 3.5e, as well as the patch for v3.5ep. If you can return the WP
install disc that you have purchased and get a refund, you might
consider doing that.
