Probably this:

When using Toast, the CD burner software standard on Mac, there is a hint to not select the partition on the CD, but the drive itself as source to be burned.

Will look at the cover again on Friday when I get home again, if it actually said Mac on the cover or if I remember wrong.

I'll have a look at the images I created, entirely forgot about this Tongue
The windows side of the disc is copy protected, so it generates tons of errors when creating the image itself. SecuRom, I think?

Thank you for informing us about this, Terje_P. Unfortunately, the bin/cue copy seems to only contains the Windows version. Bin/cue normally captures all parts of the disc so only getting the Win part is strange when the disc cover also mentions Mac. I will investigate further.

EDIT: I went to my ultimate test of burning the bin/cue to CD with ImgBurn in Windows and, alas, found that there is indeed no Mac executable on the CD. Nonetheless, thanks again for pointing us to your upload on AL.

Would like to inform that I have made a BIN/CUE copy of the English language version and uploaded it on some other site. It says mac on the cover, but I dont have a real mac to test it with.

Feel free to upload it the proper way to macintoshgarden.
