Activation Code "G870-9519" works for both v1 in OS9 and v2 in OS9, and if you register v1 and then start using v2 you won't have to reregister. I found this code by trying to guess at remembering the other code M830 .

I can plug the v2 "Prescriptions" database into the v1.3.n program and it still accesses everything. V2 app and database have broken creator codes, they should be same as V1. And V2 app won't show its icon in OS9 because of a bad flag in the resource fork. Use ResEdit File Info to enable the "Has BNDL" flag, fixes it.

The .zip download file is OK for this game entry, because it comes with disk images in it.
