Emulation
Guides on emulating older applications

Virtual PC is PC emulation software that provides users with the ability to run various Windows operating systems and software at reduced speed, right on their Macintosh, including DOS, Windows 3.1, 95, ME, and 2000.

Slower PowerPC systems will want to stick with DOS or Windows 3.1. Faster PowerPC systems will perform acceptably with Windows 95 and 98. G3 and G4 upgraded systems will perform acceptably with Windows ME and 2000.

Sys. 7 Today

OK. Here is the next edition of Connectix Virtual PC. No Windows 95 hard disk images included inside the Virtual PC™ 2.0 folder, so you need to use custom install instead or copy the Virtual PC™ 2.0 folder to the hard disk. Just choose everything except the hard disk images (except Extras 2.0 hard disk image).
For Mac OS 8.6 compatibility, you have to update them to 2.1.3.

You can use the serial numbers (all not tested):

1925-3637-6190-7648 or 4498-3570-7552-3920 or 7979-6871-0130-2571 or 0372-6585-9353-1819

or 2.1 serial:
VPC21-1016-747

Added the Virtual PC 2.0 CD image, which includes PC-DOS inside and it's upgradable to Windows.

@SHiNShU

In Classic Mac OS, please use Disk Copy 6.5 to mount such stuff

Windows users and Mac OS X users simply add these CD images to the Macintosh emulator's drives list as usual.

Wrapped stuff (either in .cdr images or .img [Disk Copy 6.3 images]) is the future of this site...
