  • My apologies to Laura for adding confusion to this, and to the list for adding to this somewhat off topic thread. Indeed, my copy of XP was provided by my employer, and was apparently under some sort of volume license so that it did not require activation. When I switched to a new computer, I installed Windows 7 under Boot Camp and had to activate it. Then when I added Parallels...

  • I would actually prefer using Windows XP if you are using VMWare or Parallels, so you avoid the problem of activating Windows. Also, you might want to check ebay for more recent versions of WP. I purchased a new, unopened copy of WP X4 for next to nothing, and I'm running it under Parallels with no problems. On Apr 4, 2012, at 12:41 PM, em315 wrote: > Windows XP will be fine...

  • Didn't the Japanese Language kit come with some bitmap fonts, two TrueType fonts, and two Postscript fonts? Perhaps changing the font used in the documents to a postscript font would make a difference.

  • Tom, I always liked the way Windows programs had one letter underlined in the menus, too. [Of course, if you were to try MS Word these days, you'd find that the menus have been replaced with the "ribbon."] In WP for Mac, having the keystroke combination appear next to the menu item was almost as good as the underlined letter, but only a few menu items had them. I only discovered...

  • If you want to have the exact same version of WordPerfect you are accustomed to on your Mac, you may want to consider a program like Parallels Desktop or one of the other programs that let you run Windows programs alongside your Mac software. With Parallels, you can install WordPerfect for Windows on your Mac, as well as any other Windows programs that don't have Mac versions, and...

  • Since this off-topic topic is so popular, I'll mention that I alleviated my Flash problems on my PPC Mac by installing a program called Clicktoflash. It was a free download, as I recall. Whenever Flash content appears on a page, it just has a button instead of the content. If you want to see it, you click the button. It sure makes web pages filled with ads load faster, and it cuts...

  • I don't want to diminish the great work done with Sheepshaver recently, but for those who already have Parallels or Fusion, I just happened to notice that WordPerfect Office X4 Standard edition is being sold on eBay for under $20. The description says it can open 60 file formats, including pdf and Word 2007 documents. Since my main desktop Mac is a PPC with Classic mode and my...

  • I imagine the "tech people" are really concerned about emulators that would be running Windows under something like Parallels or VM Ware out of fear that they would not have control of their network and whatever licenses would be needed for software and antivirus programs. If you assure them that the Sheepshaver installation will not have a network connection and that you are only...

  • Ricki, I have Sheepshaver running WordPerfect adequately well but it did take quite a bit of tinkering. I think I have about five different virtual disks from all of the times I tried various sound control panels and different versions of OS9. For me, trying to get it to work is kind of FUN (I'm afraid I'm just too much of a geek), but if it is a chore to you, your other options...
