    I just tried to installed a photoshop plug-in KPT6 and I get this error message ...
    "can't open installer because the classic environment is no longer supported"

    Does this mean that I can't use this plugin on Leopard OS etc or can I use SheepShaver or something similar to get around this problem?.... i read something about Sheepshaver on the net but don't really understand.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

    I moved to Mac about 4 weeks ago ............. i'm guessing you had to start your learning curve somewhere too!

    Man, i just bought a classic game Pirates Gold! I never thought it would be a problem running. But i am in the same boat! No classic environment.. :( Does that mean all i can do with this is turn it into a Drink Coaster???

    You could run an emulator like SheepShaver.

    +1 as long as the game doesnt require too much power.

    I'm not a computer expert. So D/L SheepShaver and that's it?

    You'll need a copy of Mac OS 9, and a Mac OS Classic ROM file.

    If you Google, you should be able to find some detailed instructions.
