MagiC PC is an emulator of the Atari ST/TT computer line running the MagiC multitasking TOS-compatible operating system, allowing Atari users to run their software on top of Microsoft Windows.

Several hardware components typical for the Atari ST/TT computers, as blitter and sound chip, are simulated, thus giving MagiC PC a high compatibility with existing Atari ST programs. It support besides the traditional screen resolutions of 640x400 in monochrome mode, 640x200 in 4-color mode and 320x200 in 16-color mode, arbitrarily chosen b/w and color resolutions up to 16 colors.

Additional features:
• Printing using the Centronics and RS-232 interface of the PC is supported.
• use of online and terminal programs through the serial interface of the PC is suported (including over a connected modem).
• file access to disk image container files or to Windows file system (including floppy disk access) is supported.
• optional NVDI system extension supporting 8-, 16-, and 24-bit color screen modes and use of TrueType fonts in Atari programs, accelerated through Windows GDI.

There is also a version for Mac OS named MagiC Mac and Mac OS X named MagiC Mac X.

Only the latest version 6.2, that was originally released in 2001, is still sold (link).

This page only has the version 6.0 full version, the last one which supported Windows 98 and is no longer runnable under anything newer than Windows 2000.
The other two downloads are the version 6.1 demo and the updater from 6.1 to 6.2 which are downable at the linked MagiC PC homepage for free.
