Emulation
Guides on emulating older applications

Version 4.0 requires Mac OS 8.5 or higher, and a Power Mac G3 or G4 processor. It was available with PC-DOS 2000, Windows 98 (Second Edition) and Windows ME guest operating systems. Includes a new virtual disk format that can dynamically grow up to 127 GB.

To run Windows ME I recommend using OS 9 or higher.
Give Windows at least 96 MB of RAM or more.

The last Mac update was 4.0.2.

4.0 is also the first to have a Windows version. The Windows version requires Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0 SP6, or Windows 2000 Professional as host. (This is not the Windows version)

Virtual PC Serial: VPM4-2108-6328-6285-9319

Windows ME Serial: F4J33-QH26T-RPFDG-36CG6-GR2C3

The Windows ME updater is 3rd party, but it works and contains all the latest and last Windows ME updates released by Microsoft. This is the ONLY known way to update Win ME.

KernelEX is a freeware kernel extension for Win Me that allows running of newer Win XP software (some but not all) such as Firefox 10 etc. It basically extends Win Me's life and usefulness. For those of you who are interested, the kernel extender also works in Windows 98.

Any PowerPC G3 or G4 processor
Mac OS 8.5 or later (Mac OS 9.0 or later to run Windows ME/2000 configurations)

Worked well. Now I have a piece of technological horror installed on my computer. Smile

You are absolutely right....My mistake. Therefore, files changed to .toast.

Recently, I installed Windows 98 within Parallels Desktop, but saw 16 colours only.
Then, I made the Windows ME update, and I got 256 colours as I wanted to see,
to play games within (say Sierra's King's Quest Collection [V, VI] , for example).

So no one please say, Windows ME is intended to be a bad release.

Connectix Virtual PC 4.0 works in mac os 9.2.2 on Power mac G4 1.25 mirror door 2003.
You need to change the files to toast files because mac os 9.2.2 can't open the dmg files.
I open the files in toast program.I saved the image as toast files for mac os 9.2.2. It works in windows me and windows 98.
