I have tested the serial without the word "beta" (with anything else) & yep, it doesn't work... I was not sure that version is "carbonized" or not. I didn't test it under Mac OS X. The installer itself don't imply it like many other... This should be tested with Cheetah, Puma or Jaguar. May be it could work. If not, then, a final version should, for sure...

Well I installed it after all, on my eMac with 9.2.2 (haven't run it as yet). It was refusing to accept the serial... Until I figured it out (requires the word "beta" as the user name)... I'm so thick at times Glasses

Say, this might also run native on early Mac OS X's, such as 10.0 maybe? If you get info on the application icon you'll see it's in an application package folder, it's not a typical classic application file.

[Edit] Installed it on 10.3.9... It fails to run on that OS (earliest Mac OS X I have installed to test with). Tho' the app itself is carbon encoded...

Runs nicely under 9.2.2 on the eMac. Thanks.

YW! Don't ask me where I've found this... Smile Although there is a serial, it could be time limited. So, finding a final version would be better, but, well, this could be harder. Wink Also, it was inside a folder originally, so I've created a DC image especially for the picture. Smile

Ah & congratulations for your Mac OS X version of iTunes 2.0.4 too. Wink

Thanks for this upload, Franky. I may not get around to trying it myself, but it's great to see it here. Wink

I do like the look of this beta's simpler UI tho'.
