This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II, QEMU

This is the first version of MacPC (version 1.0), which is derived from SoftWindows for Performa.

MacPC is designed specifically for any 680x0 processor or PowerPC processor Macintosh.

It delivers up to entry level 386 performance on 68040-based computers and entry level 486 performance on PowerPC-based computers.

MacPC comes with MS-DOS 6.21. Microsoft Windows 3.1 must be purchased separately if you want to run standard-mode Windows applications.

Pro-Tip: If you have Windows 3.1 install images, you can install Windows 3.1 from there and after installing Windows, enter "SPEEDUP" command in the DOS prompt to install Insignia drivers. This will make MacPC become SoftWindows.

This one seems to run more stable under Basilisk-II than SoftPC.

Although it says 386, when installed on a 68040, it only provides 80286 emulation, like all the other versions of SoftPC.

Also no serial #?
