Hello, and thank you for asking your question, with
I am Sr. Mac Tech Support Specialist, Terry, glad to assist you.


• I like you Bill, have been on that elusive search for a virtual pc emulator that will work with the PPC processor macs (outside of the Intel processor Mac family) and I have to admit, I have come up blank.

I have checked other virtual pc emulators like VirtualBox for Mac, CoRD

•both of these emulators are from the Open source community which I thought would be PPC friendly, but like the popular commercial PC emulators, VMWare Fusion and Parallels v5.0 , all of these emulators require Macs with the Intel Processors in order to run their applications with the Windows OS platforms.

So as much as I would like to provide you another alternative to use instead of Virtual PC 7.3 for Mac (which I have for my Mac OS X 10.4.11 PPC Mac as well), this emulator is as they say " the last of the Mohicans" for the PPC processor Macs.

I would love to be proved wrong on this.

If you have any more questions, regarding your technical issue, please feel free to reply to this post as I am always ready to assist. Thank you!
