Megastar 5 and a Mac computer
      #5739758 - 03/17/13 10:06 PM

Is there an easy way to be able to use my copy of Megastar on my apple laptop? It seems they are not compatible and that Willman Press (sp?) has not and does not provide a way to make them compatible.

Check out Apple's Boot Camp, or a VM solution like Parallels, VMWare,etc.

I've also successfully run it under the Wine environment. That being said, I now run Megastar 5 under Windows 7 on Parallels very effectively.
