    I have Macromedia Studio 8 and i would like to use it on my 2013 iMac. I was told that I could buy parallels and Install Snow leopard on my new iMac, so I can run Macromedia 8. I'm not sure what to do as parallels wont support Rosetta which I need to run Macromedia Studio 8. I am really frustrated and I was wondering how I can do this?

    When you install Snow Leopard Sever in Parallels, you can use it and Rosetta within Snow Leopard Server to run PowerPC applications on newer Macs.

    It must be Snow Leopard Server. You can purchase it from Apple for $20-$29.

    The license agreement only allows the virtualization of SL server, not the regular version. There's no other technical reason, other then what apple allowed.

    The last time I looked at this, Vmware fusion looked at what version you had and if it wasn't the server flavor it would not work/install. Admittedly that was a while ago.

    VMware fusion will work with a standard snow leopard install, or any version of osx for that matter, if you user VMware unlocker. Unfortunately there is no equivalent of that with parallels.

    Parallels 9 & OSX Snow Leopard Server, no issues using Server edition runs Rosetta, Macromedia Studio8 Pro no problems thank you.

    I am somewhat surprised that you chose to delete my response to this message, so I will repeat it with the purported "offending" information deleted:
