    Default mac files on a pc

    im looking to open a mac file on my pc, when i try to open it, it comes up with some win32 error, now i know theres software for macs which will let you open pc files on it, well is there a emulator or whatever to let you open mac files on a pc?

    cheers

    nope, adobe photshop 7 mac

    i need to extract it and see if it will install, but it wont let me as it wont run cause of some win32 also cause its for mac not pc,

    but with some software i should be able to pen the mac file on my computer just like it was a pc progam

    photoshop 7 for the pc should be compatible with whatever is generated in the mac version.

    is it compressed already?

    if so download stuffit for the pc as that should be able to unpack it.

    i think you're wanting to use emulation to open the file - just get photoshop 7 for the pc and it can handle it natively

    no mate, they're two different programs.

    you need to download photoshop 7 for the pc.

    adobe make a version for the mac and a version for the pc - if you get the pc version it will be a lot quicker..

    it's usually all over the newsgroups

    yes mate, thought you were talking about an image file, not the executable itself.

    don't bother with stuffit, i thought you meant you had an archived psd file or something.

    sorry mate.

    the best thing for you to do is get hold of the PC specific version of Photoshop.

    ask someone in the hub if they can help, they probably have eval versions knocking aboutin there
