Installation Guidelines for Macs
The Magical Worlds of Joseph Cornell on DVD-ROM program must be installed on to your hard disc before it can be run. However, the data files which the program uses always reside on the DVD-ROM.
To install The Magical Worlds of Joseph Cornell:
2. Running under OS X
The Magical Worlds of Joseph Cornell is designed to run under Mac OS 8.6+, 9 or OS X in Classic mode (which is an emulated version of OS 9). If you have problems running Cornell in Classic mode we have also provided a OS X version of the main application. Please note that this version has not been thoroughly tested and it is run at the user's risk.
It has been brought to our attention that some people have been experiencing problems running the DVD-ROM in the latest versions of Mac OSX. We have good news - it still works if you take the following simple steps to work around the problem.
When the DVD-ROM was published, most Mac users were running OS9, and for those with OSX the program would open in "Classic" mode. However, Classic is not supported on Intel-based Macs or in Mac OS X v10.5 "Leopard" and later.
The DVD-ROM has a Mac OSX version on it. This worked fine until Leopard but now it throws up a couple of dialog boxes. Here's what to do.
Install the OSX version
Insert the DVD-ROM and open the "Cornell" folder.
If you run "Install Cornell for Macintosh" on an intel or Leopard+ Mac you will see this dialog:
If you see this, dismiss the dialog (click "OK") and locate "Cornell for OSX" in the "Mac extras" folder on the DVD-ROM (see the folder list image above).
Drag this file to your desktop, or wherever you wish to keep it. The file will copy over.
Double-click the newly-installed "Cornell for OSX".
After a few seconds you will see this dialog:
Cancel this dialog.
You will then see this dialog:
Dismiss this dialog. (Click "OK" or, if you can't see the cursor, tap the return key on your keyboard.)
The DVD-ROM should now play normally.
You only need to install the OSX engine once. To run the DVD-ROM in future you just need to dismiss the two dialogs as seen above.
