Guides on emulating older applications

Version 5 of this multi-track audio/MIDI recorder/editor software.

DL #1 contains an image of the installer CD for v. 5.0. The installer application is a universal binary but DP 5.0 is PPC only. DP 5.0 requires Mac OS X 10.3.7 at least.

DL #2 contains the update for v. 5.01 which is the last PPC-only version. DP 5.01 requires Mac OS X 10.3.7 at least.

DL #3 contains the update to v. 5.11 which is the first universal binary update. It requires DP 5.0 or 5.01 to be installed. Version 5.11 requires Mac OS X 10.4.

DL #4 contains the update to v. 5.12 (universal binary). It requires DP 5.11 to be installed. Version 5.12 requires Mac OS X 10.4.4.

DL #5 contains the update to v. 5.13 (universal binary). It requires DP 5.12 to be installed. Version 5.13 requires Mac OS X 10.4.6 and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5.

DL #6 contains 3rd party key bindings. Place in the DP extras folder.

To authorise version 5.0, you need to either burn a CD from the Install Disc image and mount it, or mount the image with Toast. Toast mounts the image as a virtual CD that is recognised by the application (mounting by double clicking the dmg will not achieve this). You can then successfully apply the serial number DP500-010D8-JV04A

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

500 MHz G4 at least
512 MB RAM at least

When I run DP5 itself it instantly crashes. Looking at the problem report window it says this:
