Hi!

The earliest computer version of Grolier that I'm aware of from my research is "Grolier's Academic American Encyclopedia", which as you alluded to is from 1983, but the only version I've seen references to in old computing magazines was available in videotex form over the Viewtron service running on old AT&T Sceptre systems. I'm not sure if there was ever a disk version produced for any Apple platforms, though it would be a rare find for sure!

I'd start with trying to hunt down an emulator for Viewtron, though I doubt one exists due to the rarity, age, and highly distributed nature of the service.

Check 3:56 of this video Smile

Hi Carlos

The iso d/l at macgarden is complete and will work - but will need a keygen
as Math generate a license specific and unique to each machine.

So you will have to do this yourself, as anything provided by someone else won't work on your computer.

Need to d/l a keygen ( available on the web in many places) - want the one by "Again" - as it provides 3 entry fields.

- which you require as you are not installing Math on Win but on Mac
(there are also keygens on internet with 2 entry fields - these are of no use to you for mac install).

===================================

1) Run Math Installer get the MathID. (this is generated to be unique to your hard drive)

2) Run the keygen in windows - enter MathID given to you by Mac - press generate. Make a note of the license Lxxx--xxxx and password given to you.

3) Go back to mac enter the license Lxxx--xxxx and password = which is the long number given to you by the keygen.

4) Should be ready to go.....

Been awhile since I've done this - so the above is by memory only - so may be slightly incorrect in places, but broadly speaking that is what you do . Let me know if any problems.

Hope that helps.
Regards

John

Notes -- As I recall the macgarden iso actually had a keygen included - but it is the wrong one - which may be where you are going wrong. It only has 2 entry fields - you want the one with 3.

But this was years ago -- and someone may have updated it with the correct keygen or removed it altogether.

If problem persists- leave me your MathID number here ... and I will return correct License and Password from my own keygen.

============================================================

John, first of all im very very grateful for the lines you wrote trying to help me! thank you so much! Actaully i did the steps but dindt had much luck, I get the MathID is: 6304-40462-88983. Can you give me a hand with the Lic, pass from your own keygen? Many thanks in advnace!
