    "Discontinued SoftWindows, RealPC, work in Classic. February 19, 2004 -- In response to some of the problems with Virtual PC, a couple of readers recommending turning to some old, discontinued emulators from FWB Software (and Insignia Solutions before that). SoftWindows and Real PC are pre-OS X applications, but do run in Classic.


    Gary Sammons was frustrated with Virtual PC's inability to run on G5 Macs:


    If G5 owners want PC capability on their computers before Virtual PC 7.0 they can achieve it via SoftWindows 98 Version 5.1 from FWB. I bought a copy for $50 on Ebay. It is usually available every few weeks.

    It takes a little work and you need an external hard drive that will boot off another Mac, preferably a G4 of some sort. What I did was boot my G4 off a Smartdisk Firelite 60gig (in OS 9.2) and installed SoftWindows on the Firelite. Then I hooked up the Firelite to my G5 (discontinued 1.8 single processor) and changed the boot partition on the G5 (Classic boot up) to the FIrelite and it works.




    I am an appraiser and need to transfer pictures between the Mac and PC; SoftWindows or Virtual PC handles the conversion between PICT and JPG automatically during the copy and paste.




    Internet also works .I didn't do any further testing. I use Microsoft's RDC (remote desktop control) to take care of the rest of my PC to Mac needs...(on the G5) I also use Virtual PC 6.0 on my G4, running in OS 9.2.


    A. V. Pawlowski overcomes the VPC/Panther slowdown problem by running RealPC in Classic:

    I wonder why my old RealPC/Win98, running under OS X 10.3.2 Classic, runs so much faster than VPC 6.1.1/Win98 on the same machine; it seems like twice as fast, at least. I may go back to it (as long as it runs), even though it has a few less features and has been discontinued."
