Question about Block Financial H&R Block Kiplinger's WILLPower for PC, Mac

1 Answer

My WillPower is dated 1999, and refuses to run on my MacBook correctly, saying "it no longer supports Classic Environment". Is there any way I can encourage it to operate on my Intel 10.6.4 Mac?

Unfortunetely, no. Apple is not as obsessed with backwards compatibility as the folks in Redmond and they do not support the old enviroments. This leads to far less security holes that have to be patched every couple of days, a more stable OS and more revenue from new software sales ;-)

Hi this problem is apparent with many older applications-drivers and programs that are written for older mac operating systems. There are numerous ways to try and solve these problems including installing emulators to run the software. Here is is a link to an official Apple mac support page that specifically deals with printer and scanner drivers. There is too much detail for me to explain in an email so i hope this link will help you with what you need to know.
Best of luck

Hi, I'm receiving this message when I try to install Numbers undercover on our Mac... You can't open the application Numbers Undercover Installer because the Classic environment is no longer supported.


You must be running OS X as opposed to OS 9. Unfortunately later version of OS X do not support classic applications. According to the Sunburst website they do not support OS X which is strange as OS 9 was discontinued in Macs probably for the last 7 years. Sorry.

Backyard 2001 wont work for my mac it keeps saying the classic environment is no longer supported. can i get it to work?


In short, no. Apple has completely dropped support for the classic environment. It's a simple case of out with the old and in with the new.
So another words any applications that requires the classic environment will not work anymore, within the new operating system.

Loading into a Mac, says "Classic environment no longer supported"


The program you are trying to load was designed for System 9. The new MAC's will not run both systems. If you can get an upgrade for the product make sure you check the System Requirements. The only other way is to run the software on an older MAC that supports System 9

According to a tech support person at Belkin, this device is compatible with OS8x and OS9x, so it is not going to work with OS10 unless new drivers are released.

The drivers available so far are listed here:

Wont install on Mac i use leopard and it states it needs classic envinroment


"In any case, you will not be able to use the Classic Environment in any OS with your MacBook Pro. The Classic Environment functions only on PowerPC-based Macs, of which the MacBook Pro (and all other currently sold Macs) is not. Mac OS 9 was never designed for Intel Macs, and cannot run on them without full PowerPC hardware emulation."

Hope it helps

Unable to install the Print Shop for Mac


Hi Penny Ray,

Print Shop Installer is part of the old OS9 operating system. "Classic Environment" was a form of OS-9-Lite that ran on-top of earlier versions of OS-X. It is not supported in Intel-based Macs, (and doesn't appear to be supported in OS 10.5, which is the current version).

What model Mac laptop and version of OS are you running? And more specifically, can you provide more detail about what are you hoping to print?

Please let me know when you can - thanks in-advance.

Photo Loader


You shouldn't have to install Photo Loader. A Mac would just use IPhoto.
