Simpler method for running WPMac on Intel - improved (and really final this time
- After some further testing, I've posted another,
and this time I hope really final, version of my
simpler, smaller method of running WPMac on
The improved version has a better installer, and
now includes a one-click script that will run the
system in full-screen mode, and another script
that lets you change the window size without going
to the unfriendly setup program.
As before, the download is here:
To download and run, click on the down arrow at the

learned a lot about AppleScript in the process,
but I hope it may be at least slightly useful to
other people too.
