Emulation
Guides on emulating older applications

1st download Toast4/MacZip image of the Mac OS 9 volume on the Norton Utilities 8 CD. I don't believe anything requires a serial code. The file name has "9" to indicate the OS volume. The disc installs NU version 6.0.5 for Mac OS 8.1-9.x (See also Norton Utilities 6)

2nd download German version for Mac OS 9. The disc mounts as Norton Utilities CD 9 but installs NU version 6.0.3 for Mac OS 8.1-9.x (See also Norton Utilities 6)

3rd download German version of the Norton Utilities 8 CD for Mac OS X 10.1.5-10.2. This is version 8 of Norton Utilities. To avoid potential file system corruption DO NOT USE this OS X version. It is here for historical purposes.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC

* Mac OS 8.1 or higher.
* PowerPC processor.
* 24 MB RAM
* 25 MB disk space.

I have added OS X to the OS list. Unfortunately it appears on all downloads, including the OS 9 downloads.

Although the first two downloads are part of the Norton Utilities version 8 distribution, these only install versions 6.x of Norton Utilities

All symatec products for os x. They don't work in mac os x 10.4.11 or greater.
They will all work up to mac os x 10.3.9 only.

I only uploaded the OS 9 volume from the disc. There is an OS X volume, but you should not run it on OS X disks.

I guess I could still upload that volume for historical purposes.

Do NOT use Norton on OSX disks. It will corrupt anything past Jaguar.
I think that's why they got out of the Mac end of the business.
Use an appropriate version of TechTool Pro instead.

Are you sure the norton Utilities 8 only works in mac os 8.1 to 9. It should work in os x too.
But the CD said To boot from this CD, hold down the C key when starting your macintosh. Please allow 5-7 minutes for os x software to load. To switch to the os 9 partition, hold down the option key.
