    Virtual PC
    I'm trying to install Virtual PC on my iBook. I have the Windows XP OS installed and working. It's just whenever i try to install the additions for VPC i get an error saying

    1607: Unable to install InstallShield Scripting Runtime.

    then it closes out and thats it. Keeps doing the same thing each time i try it.

    I don't think VPC is any longer supported, you running a G4 or G5

    Specs:
    Imac 27", i7 3.5GHz, 3TB Fusion drive, 32GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    As a former VPC user on even a G4 have found VPC a terrible slow and frustrating program with all sorts of problems. Only solution for me was to buy a second hand (cheap) Windows laptop.
