This is Aldus PageMaker 5.0a re-released as Adobe PageMaker 5.0a. Mainly just the branding elements of the program are changed although the installation media contains both the 68k and PPC versions of the software. Includes both the CD version and the installation floppy disks as well as the included Extensis PageTools 1.0 floppy and Adobe Type on Call 4.0 CD.

Was focusing on the authenticity of the upload when I first uploaded. I thank you for taking the time to put the niceties with it. So I've already found out that if you add the Disk 2 folder into the CD, it will do a regular CD installation without having to have Disk 2 mounted. The original requires it mounted though so that's what I uploaded.

@blackholemac: Much thanks for this upload.

The PageMaker 5 installs nicely for me on Basilisk II & Mini vMac II. - Tho' the Toast copy of the install CD included in the top archive, is not Mini vMac friendly. So, as this will install on Macintosh II's running SSW 6 and 7, I added a Mini vMac compatible CD-ROM copy to the downloads above. It works really well, dragging it into a running SSW 6 vMac II window, hence the screenshots.

Thanks again.
