I tried installing star craft but it says it can't due to not supporting Classic Environment. Is there a way around this that is free and doesn't require to purchase an extra OS? Thanks! If I can't play SC I'll be disapointed

Well I think I found a solution, it's for starcraft though. So if others are having problems with a program I can't help ya there. But here is a link for the classic installer patch. I'll see if it works.

EDIT: I don't know if it installed it properly, or my SC is just lame cause my SC wont start

but that requires a copy of the older os, which I don't have I was hoping for a solution to allow me to run it in OS X without having to reinstall. I have it installed I think, but evertime I try run it, it starts up like it;s about to go but then it just turns off. This sucks!

Did you download the OSX "patch" for Starcraft? It will allow it to install thru OSX. Classic not needed or used.

I tried that. But when I get it installed, and after installing the latest patch, when I run "Sarcraft (Carbon)" a wraith bounces in my bar and then mouse moves to the same spot each time and then nothing happens.

Special Note for OSX users: You can use our OSX native installer to install StarCraft on OSX.
Run this then install.

I have another problem with this "classic environment", whatever it is.

I'm trying to install the software associated with a secondhand CanoScan D660U colour image scanner and when I click on setup, I get the message: "Cannot open because classic environment is no longer supported."

Can anyone help with this please? I'm not totally computer illiterate but I've never heard of a "classic environment" before.

Classic is the older Mac OS like Mac OS9 and before that OSX replaced. Very different than OSX which is BSD based. It's now called Classic. After Tiger 10.4, Apple changed 10.5 Leopard enough that there is no longer a Classic interface option. The only way I know a way around it is SheepShaver.

Hello everyone! I just purchased the classic version of Unreal Tournament for Mac. I also have a brand new Mac desktop, however when i tried to install the game on my Mac a message popped up that said it cannot install due to not supporting Classic Environment. How can i get this game to work?

Like all emulators Sheeshaver is very, very slow. That is the price for forcing something to run in an environment it is not supposed to. Fior very, very slow consider VPC 6 as an equivalent:-

If you want to run games designed for Mac OS 9 and before, it's at this point honestly easier and cheaper to get a used Mac. 500MHz G4s can be found for less than $50.

I'm perplexed. When installing, it asks for a 13-character cd-key. The cd-key on my disc envelope is one long 26-character cd-key. I tried inputting the first 13 and then the last 13; neither worked. Wtf?
