Hi,

since Freehand was abandoned by Adobe it no longer runs properly on the latest releases of OS X.

However, if you find you need this application on your iMac there is a workaround to run Freehand 11 in a "Virtual Machine".

You will need Virtual PC software such as Parallels, VMWare or VirtualBox. (The latter is free).

Next, Call 1-800-MYAPPLE and ask them for Snow Leopard Server for $19.99, plus shipping. This disc will allow you to install a version of OS X 10.6 that is compatible with Freehand and will install inside your virtual machine software mentioned above.

Also, the registration process was changed by Adobe and a Universal Serial # ***** issued: FHD110-58402-67227-68568
