Guides on emulating older applications

LaunchAsRoot is an app's passport to running as superuser, i.e. with root privileges. It runs as an application and service for launching applications as root user. To use, drag the application (or a document) you wish to launch as root on top of the LaunchAsRoot application icon in the Finder. Alternatively, Control-click on the application (or a document) in the Finder and select "Launch As Root" from the Services contextual submenu. Either way, you will be presented with an authentication dialog. Enter the name and password of an administrator to allow the application to be launched by LaunchAsRoot. LaunchAsRoot quits after launching the application. (adapted from the Product description)

LaunchAsRoot is free and is for Intel Macs only. No longer available from the publisher.
