4.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE, 1 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: English Pronunciation in Use Advanced (Book+CD-ROM) (Paperback)
This is an excellent program but BEWARE! The software was developed in 2006 and will not run on the latest Mac computers.One hopes Cambridge University Press will update it.

Ann, it WILL run on the latest Macintosh computers, but NOT if they have Mac OS X Lion installed. That's because Apple has abandoned classic Mac support with Lion. So your review's title should probably read 'Beware of the Lion' ;-)

However, there's an easy way around this kind of conundrum: Get hold of an old Windows XP (they're cheap now) and install it via VirtualBox (a free emulator by Oracle, which can be found on the internet). That way, Windows - and thus all kinds of older language learning software - will run in Lion. You can even allocate a separate virtual desktop to Windows and have it running while you use your Mac as usual.
