    Ever since I installed
    -IHMC Cmap Tools
    Appleworks is no longer on my computer. Did one of these programs delete it and how can I get it back

    No, these applications did not delete Appleworks in the normal course of installing.

    The must usual thing that I see is people accidentally click, hold and drop something into another folder as they are sweeping the mouse from one spot to another.

    Have you searched for the filename Appleworks? See if it still on the drive but in an unconventional location.

    If you need to reinstall, you should have Appleworks on one of the OS disks that came with your machine, as long as it was one of the "consuler" models of Mac.

    Are you sure it was there in the first place? I know there were some computers that for some reason did not ship with AppleWorks on them.

    If you end up not being able to get it, I could probably send you AppleWorks. Is that illegal?

    On a backup?

    Silly question, but do you happen to have it on a backup? Even if you had it carried over from an old Mac and it's not on your current install cd's, you've probably backed it up a hundred times. AppleWorks tends to keep to itself, so reinstalling it is a simple matter of dragging it off of a backup and into your Apps folder.

    If it's not on your computer's original install CD and you didn't include your Apps in your regular backups, you can always purchase AW. The good news is that, on one CD, you get AW for Mac and Windows! :)

    I know it was there because i used it a lot. Also I don't keep a backup of apps. (I do back up other stuff)

    Could it be that its a hidden file now or something?
