I can't understand it why, I tried after and after, No HELP !!!
I use mac OS X, Anyone know how to solve this. Help me…
Adobe Authorware 7 installing issues
Unfortunately, your copy of Authorware 7 is intended for the Windows operating system only, having an .exe file extension. All .exe programs (executable) from Windows when opened in a Mac will automatically be opened using TextEdit. If you really want to install it, you can either get another copy intended for Macintosh operating systems or use a program that can emulate installation of Windows programs like Parallels, Darwin and Crossover. About the three, Crossover is the most commonly used.
If you don’t really need to use Authorware (it has been discontinued for almost 6 years!) you can use other alternative Authoring tools like Authorware Pro and Director can get the job done easily, and they already have their versions for your chosen operating system, the Macintosh OS X.
Hope this helps!
