Kid Works 2 (I have the Windows version) seems to be (at the time) the very best of Davidson's creativity software. I also have a hybrid CD of Kid Works Deluxe running on my Indigo iMac G3 (2000, 350MHz) running Mac OS 9.2.1, but there was no sound. (Actually the only sound that's coming out is Humming-way's voice, and also the synthesized voice that reads the story out loud as far as I can tell!) Both Kid Works 2 and the Deluxe version really stand out in Davidson's creativity software at the time. But It all worked on my Win98/XP machines perfectly! I'm not going to rate it or download another copy now, but I love it!

Try setting 256 colors in the Monitors control panel. If that were the problem, though, you would get that specific error message. Try also increasing the preferred memory using File > Get Info. And finally, when it does run, do not click anything until the intro music stops. Doing so always freezes it for me.

I can not get this to run in Basilisk II, I get a message saying: Error can't find file. Anyone know how to fix this?
