Not my first post but I seem to have been lost from the old forum -so change of name anyway

I run Simsig on a Mac using Parallels or did
Upgraded to Snow Leopard and guess what Parallels Desktop 3 doesn't run

You need to have version 4 and free upgrade is only available if you bought from parallels direct and not from apple

seems they are learning the MS tricks change the OS and you have to pay for new software!

Am chasing Apple and Parallels to provide a solution for recent purchasers until that time I have to switch the old PC back on !

Hi
I would suggest running SimSig under wine. It works beautifully on Linux, and I believe all modern Macs (intel chips) run wine without a problem.

Grab http://www.SimSig.co.uk/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=56&func=fileinfo&id=108 to prime your wine repository for SimSig installation (mostly just getting the fonts to work).

I am running SimSig on SnowLeopard (OSX 10,6) using Crossover for Mac. http://www.codeweavers.com/products/cxmac/ You can try the fully working demo and install SimSig into it. I did and it worked superb, so I bought the license the same day. Good thing is that it even supports LAN/Internet networking without any hassle. Biggest feature... You don't need to have a copy of Wintendows.
