If you have a modern (Intel) Mac running Leopard, you can use BootCamp, which is on your computer, to install Windows XP or Vista on your computer in a separate partition and run the software there. Other options that are a little simpler include using Darwine, a program that can run *some* Windows applications on Mac. The easiest solution would be to return the product to the store, because these companies are unlikely to ever produce a Mac client for your product.

My Nancy Drew computer game won't work


Hi longview924,

Unfortunately there is no way to make that game run on your mac. Your mac uses the older powerPC architecture (all G3, G4 and G5 macintosh machines use this architecture) but the game requires that you have a mac using the newer intel architecture.

I found the details of the system requirements here:
http://www.buzz99.com/1167/nancy-drew-trail-of-the-twister-system-requirements/

Intel and PowerPC processors are very different in how they work (Intel chips are CISC chips and powerPC chips are RISC chips), which is why there is no way around it. This is also the reason why apple dropped support for the powerPC architecture in mac OS 10.6 upwards.

Without meaning to sound harsh, it may be time to consider an upgrade - macs are very expensive but the intel macbooks are leaps and bounds faster than the powerPC range :)

I cannot install School house rock 3rd and 4th grade


There are workarounds besides using an older version of Windows (dual boot or a separate machine). This requires a licensed version of the older Windows OS. However, if you have the most common version of Windows 7 - Home Premium x64, you'll have to spend some money.

School House Rock - 3rd and 4th Grade works with Win98-XP. So, you can run a virtual computer with the older version of the Windows OS. Then install the School House Rock program into the virtual version of Windows as if it were the only copy of Windows. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, or upgrade to one of these versions, you can do this for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft (in order). Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. However, with those, you need to buy the program and have a licensed version of the Windows OS.

If you have the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can try the compatibility mode. (To check your version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the title of the OS ends with x64, you have the 64-bit version. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.) If you have the 32-bit, right click on the installer for the School House Rock software. Select Properties and then the Compatibility Tab. Check the Run this program in the compatibility mode and an older version of Windows. Then click Apply and then OK. Right click on the installer again and select Run As Administrator. You may need to repeat this for the program itself.

I hope this helps.

I love that game dude, but it's old and sadly depending on the OS you have, it doesn't run. You're probably using Mac OS X, or even Mac OS X Snow Leopard and BG2SoA doesn't run on Mac unless you have bootcamp.

Unable to load add-on software to Computer Cool School


I have found out more about this program. The Australian version of this product is an old version and the UK version. The Add-ons from the USA are for a different US version of the base software. I am unsure if you are familiar with the concept of the computer registry, the central repository for all your settings, when you install Cool school it creates many entries and lists them under folders called "uk". The US add-ons can't find the "US" folder it expects and hence falsely believes the software is not installed. I accidently fixed this by replacing my base install disk with a US one. Best bet it to by Aussie add-ons (from "Toys r us" etc). If you have invested heavily in the US disks, there might be a solution however, the Aussie addon's, should you purchase them, will then not work.
