True, but I use both the current version 6 of Libre Office on my Windows10 box right along with version 4 on my MDD in OSX with no troubles. Version 4 is considered by many in the Linux community to be the PERFECT Office Suite. It here on the garden too
( https://macintoshgarden.org/apps/libre-office-4062-ppc ). Just avoid old version of OpenOffice and NeoOffice. They are buggy and very poorly optimized for PPC.

You mean LibreOffice? I wish an OS 9 version existed. Sad Even OS X PPC has been abandoned for a while.

If you are printing your own pamphlet, flyers or other paper-good, you could certainly to worse, but I realized years ago, when this first came out it was a terrible option if you needed to share / work with PC users. The very poor support for MS Office, just makes it too hard to use. Honestly Office 2001 is every bit as peppy, runs in both OS9 and OSX and even has plugins for .docx.

I feel that the modern choice and inheritor of the Word Perfect / Apple Works style of office suites is honestly Libre. None of the labyrinthine top-menus, good contextual control of most common things and really good compatibility (honestly, for editing pdfs, it does much better than all but the most recent versions of Acrobat Pro). And IT'S FREE (donationware).

Just had to write a letter. I did it in Apple Works 6 on my OS9 machine and printed it via ethernet on my postscript-compatible Kyocera printer. Such a joy to still being able to use Apple Works in 2019! It's swift, it's small, it's non-bloated. After all those years I know the program and where all the functions are. It's a pity that whenever we got to know an office package and know where all the needed functions are, we have to move on to another program or version. Just from an efficiency standpoint it doesn't make any sense.

Apple Works is everything an office package should be like. (hear that, Microsoft?)

Do you REALLY need version 6.2.2

Mistyping, me. Mean 6.2, since the higher updaters complained about not to found the 6.x version already installed, but:

Solution:
When AppleWorks 6 is not installed on the boot volume, the installer complains, version 6.2.8 seems already to be installed, even if it is 6.0.4 really.

When I moved the AppleWorks 6 folder onto the boot drive volume, the 6.2.8/6.2.9 installer worked as expected and updated the pre 6.2 version fine.

@ IIGS_User - 2018, December 10 - 6:42am

Do you REALLY need version 6.2.2? Otherwise, there is updater for version 6.2.8 still available on the Apple website:

3rd download: "AppleWorks 6.2.9 (Deutsch)"
https://support.apple.com/kb/DL617?locale=fr_CA

And minimum requirement seems to be only Appleworks 6.0:

"This update replaces any version of AppleWorks for Macintosh 6.0 or later with AppleWorks 6.2.9 for Mac OS X 10.1 or later and AppleWorks 6.2.8 for Mac OS 8.1"

When re-installing a PowerBook Pismo recently, I realized that my custom-made Updaters CD (5th d/l from above) comes with an 6.2 US updater only, it won't update other language versions.

The other updater files for newer versions require any newer AppleWorks 6 version than installed from original media, so:
Anyone, knows a link to 6.2.2 German updater?

SkyCapt's picture
by SkyCapt - 2017, November 29 - 8:43am

I've heard things that v6.2.9 the Last introduces some problems such that it's better to hang back to maybe 6.2.3/6.2.4 - anybody know specifics? So how is the v6.2.7 ?

wazeem, try Software Update (in the Control Panels), it should get you the right Carbon Lib Update (probably 1.6).

Some .app files do work in OS 9 if Carbon Lib is installed

by wazeem - 2011, October 16 - 9:04am

yeh but it could be me not taking the time to read things properly, seems like I need to download and install that Carbon update thing from Apple. My PPC OS9.1 is running Carbon 1.1.1 - but I don't know how to run an ".app" file in OS9.1 anyway. You may throw custard pies at me now *grimaces in readyness*

Added Windows Installer and Updater to 6.2.2. I know this works very well under WinXP. Let me know if the fonts are not included, and I will post them too.

themacmeister's picture
by themacmeister - 2011, September 19 - 11:31am

I saw the disc that has this the other day (one disc, in at least 200). It is (I believe) an updater that installs the entire program, and a folder of TTF fonts. I'll find it. If I have to search the internetz again, I'll find it!!

Could be of interest, because it is veeeeery rare as well...

themacmeister's picture
by themacmeister - 2011, September 18 - 8:45am

This is one of the most epic uploads on this site. Please quit griping about the Simp. Chinese version. The simple fact is, this is a pretty complete collection of a very useful and popular Apple integrated app suite.

PS. I have the TTF fonts saved separately for those willing to try the PC version. I believe the installer is still freely available (as an updater), but does not contain the fonts, making ALL the templates USELESS.

Pls let me know if you wish to post a PC version on this page as well...

YES! That upgrade way is still working.
An untouched install made in SheepShaver can be upgraded to 6.2.9 PPC if the upgrade installer finds it in the root folder of startup volume. Rosetta cares about running the app on Intel very nice.

IIGS_User's picture
by IIGS_User - 2011, September 11 - 5:58pm

Is it possible to create a OSX install from the German .CDRs?

You could probably copy the installment out of SheepShaver to the Mac OS X host system and update it from there. For me, I've copied the AppleWorks 6 installment at its time from Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X PPC, then I've moved it to my current Mac OS X 10.6 system.

The versions (6.2.9) seem to be equal, but there sure is some catch...
Apple Works D-6.2.9 runs perfectly with SheepShaver OS D-9.0. Many thanks again.

IIGS - thanks a lot for the upload, this really helps a lot. Herzlichen Dank!

Such a pity Apple decided to discontinue Apple Works. I always felt it was closing the gap between simple editors like TextEdit and the ever-growing MS Office suite. Apple Works was capable of doing most of the things that the average person wanted to do - plus doing it in a non-painful way. Thanks Apple for killing another great project :-/

IIGS User said:
I also don't know the difference between

Appleworks 6.2 Carbon.sit
and
Appleworks 6.2 OSX.sit
which, from technical understanding, must be the same part of software.

AppleWorks 6.2 installer.sit
installs AW depending on the System it runs (classic or carbon)

I believe this is how it all works:

AppleWorks 6.2 Carbon.sit
Will run on both Mac OS 8.6 - 9.2.2 (CarbonLib extension required) as well as Mac OS X. The purpose of this would be, for example, if you have Mac OS 8/9 and Mac OS X on the same computer and you want them both to be able to use the same AppleWorks, instead of installing one for Mac OS 8/9 and another one for Mac OS X.

AppleWorks 6.2 OSX.sit
Would run only on Mac OS X.

AppleWorks 6.2 installer.sit
Contains AppleWorks 6.2.3 for Mac OS 8 & 9 and AppleWorks 6.2.4 for Mac OS X. However, I believe the installer itself will only run on pre-Mac OS X systems (unless the Mac OS X systems have a working Classic installation).
Also, when performing the 'Easy Install', the installer states:

AppleWorks 6.2 Installer says:
When running Mac OS 9.1 or later, both AppleWorks 6 for Mac OS 8 & 9 and AppleWorks 6 for Mac OS X will be installed as a single application package. The correct version will be run automatically.

AppleWorks6.2SC.sit
Is, as sheepmyshaver123 stated, the Simplified Chinese version of AppleWorks 6.2.

Ok Thanks!, Then I'll keep the older version,
Then I guess Carbon means only-for-Mac OS X-ready-hardware,

I remember PowerPC Macs ran 68k software through internal emulation,
so I think this is the case, just one step further.

now I get it.
