Final (I hope) version of smaller way to run WPMac on Intel
- I've posted an improved, and I hope final, version of
my "appliance" for running WPMac on Intel machines.
The download is the first one listed on this page:
It has many minor improvements in content and
interface, and unless someone finds something wrong
with it, I think it will be the final version, as it seems
to work quite well.
To download and run, click on the down arrow at the
far right of the line with "WP Appliance Files--New
VersionTest.zip" This will download a ZIP file to your
downloads folder. Double-click on the ZIP file to
extract a folder called "WP Appliance Files" Inside
that folder is an icon "Install WPMac Appliance."
Double-click on that folder and follow the prompts.
If you already have an earlier version you may or may
not want to run the "Remove WPMac Appliance" script
before installing the new one. I think the new version
can simply overwrite the current one without problems.
I've found another advantage of John's SheepShaver
version over this BasiliskII-based version: John's
version can use the Lucida Grande font; this one
can't. Otherwise, my setup is more suitable for
getting an old WPMac file printed or converted to some
other format. John's is the version you want if you
actually want to get work done in WPMac.
