Hi mrdav. Sadly, no joy so far. I've made a fuller response in the thread you've linked to.

Mike, I think there could be some joy with that IA disc image you mentioned in the forums:

And now almost three years on, an item claiming to be the CD for Mac/Win filled that above Buy Link: spot, & I thought; "Yes!"... It turned out to be for Mac only Sad

I purchased it anyway, and archived it here (see CWks 3 Mac page).

Unfortunately, after almost two years the Amazon Buy link is still a dead-end.

Thank you for uploading this, IIGS_User. I'm hoping the (English language) Mac/Windows hybrid CD will surface one day and find its way here.

Sad to say, the Amazon link is dead, showing the notice; "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock". I would have purchased it otherwise.
