The log provides user names and addresses user and details about file access. Open Door hopes to ship AFP Logger by July.

Miramar shows utility for converting Mac files to Windows. May 28, 1998 -- Miramar Systems recently demonstrated PC Migrator, a new utility for Windows that preps Mac files for a Windows environment. Used as a companion to PC MACLAN, PC Migrator automatically determines what type of file is being converted, what application it came from, and filters the file extension and illegal characters. Miramar expects to ship PC Migrator in late June.

New tip: Miramar PC MacLAN on Win 98. May 28, 1998 -- Miramar Systems has sent us this tip on running PC MacLAN on Windows 98. See MacWindows Peer-to-Peer Tips. (PC MacLAN is AppleShare peer-to-peer software for Windows.)

Reader's Word 6 for Mac crashes NT server. May 28, 1998 -- Rick Hazey reports that his Windows NT Server 4.0 (SP3) crashes every time any one of a dozen Mac users save a Word 6.0.1a file to the server through Word's save dialog. The NT Server uses Services for Macintosh. The big bad blue screen occurs every time a Mac user does this, and only for Word. Hazey scanned for macro viruses using the latest virus definitions file of SAM, but came up empty. If anyone has seen this before, please let us know.

Solutions product update: using Mac disks on PCs. May 26, 1998 -- We've updated the MacWindows Disk Solutions page with several more products that enable Windows machines to read Mac disks, thanks to information provided to us by Mark McKenney. Macaccess2 ($29.95) by Synchronos Softcorp, is one of the least expensive of these types of utilities we've seen. A French company offers a set off products called MacDisk. Both web sites offer demo versions for download.

Bug in PC Exchange and DOS ZIP disks. May 26, 1998 -- Mark McKenney reported a problem with the PC Exchange control panel in OS 7.6.1 and DOS Zip drives. The Zip cartridge mounts, but PC Exchange only recognizes about 60% of the data on the disk.

New Tip: Mac font uses Windows character set. May 21, 1998 -- Gil Hurlbut sent us this tip about a Mac font you can use for use with Internet applications that uses the Windows character set. See MacWindows Tips.

New Tip: Using Find File to find Type and Creator codes. May 21, 1998 --Robert Jansson sent us this tip for finding the Type and Creator codes of a Mac file: Use the Mac's Find File. In the pop-up menu, choose "File Type." Click "More Choices" and choose Creator" in the next pop-up menu. Now, simply drag and drop the file you want to learn about to the Find File Window. (Click here for a screen shot.)

Jansson points out that in Mac OS 8.5 (to be released next September), Find File's capabilities will expand through the use of Apple's v-twin search technology. (For more information on Type and Creator Codes, see MacWindows Tutorials. For the procedure to match Windows file name extensions with a Mac type and creator code on a Windows NT Server, see MacWindows Server Tips.)

New Tips: fixing Windows NT Server SFM disappearing icons. May 21, 1998 -- Several readers have sent in another method of getting disappearing Mac files on Widnows NT Services for Macintosh volumes to reappear. We've added this to our list at MacWindows Server Tips.

MacWeek story about USB. May 21, 1998 -- MacWeek just posted a good story on USB (universal serial bus), the new cross-platform port to be used in the iMac and future Macs, and which is supported in Windows 98.

Reader gets MacPicasso 3dfx accelerator to work with VirtualPC. May 20, 1998 -- Chris Bailey has been able to get a MacPicasso 540 3dfx card to work with Virtual PC 2.0. On May 13, we ran a news item that offered reasons from a reader and from Connectix on why MacPicasso would not run with Virtual PC. Bailey says he got it to work by not installing the "correct" drivers:

"I did not install the special 3dfx drivers, I just let Windows select the standard drivers (after it noted new hardware and asked me if I wanted to find the new drivers for this card). Somehow, it worked! I have been using it regularly for a couple of weeks with no problems."

Microsoft posts jumping icon hotfix. May 20, 1998 -- Microsoft has posted the hotfix for the Windows NT jumping icon problem (see MacWindows Server Tips for a description of the problem.) The fix now comes in an auto-install file called "sfm-fixi.exe" for the Intel version, "sfm-fixa.exe" for the Alpha version. Although this fix had been available for several months now, Microsoft had been requiring people to call tech support, accept a $195 credit card charge, and then a refund, in order to obtain the hotfix. This download is free.

MacWeek review of NT on Orange Micro 550 card running Windows NT. May 20, 1998 -- MacWeek has posted a review of the OrangePC 550 card from Orange Micro, with version 3.0.2 of the software, running both Windows NT and Windows 95. The 550 is Orange Micro's top-of-the-line coprocessor card. MacWindows' John Rizzo wrote the review.

More feedback on Windows voice recognition. May 20, 1998 -- Reader Tom Kennedy writes to tell us that he is running Dragon Dictate Naturally Speaking on an OrangePC 520 card with a Intel 200 MHz Pentium with 48 MB RAM.

AppleShare IP 6.0 to feature SMB support for Windows. May 19, 1998 -- Apple released details of the beta version of AppleShare IP 6.0, which we announced yesterday as available for downloading. New Mac-Windows integration features include file sharing support for Windows 95 and NT clients through the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. The print server now supports TCP/IP through LPR/LPD printing for both Mac and Windows users. There's also IMAPv4 support for POP and SMTP mail servers, which allows users to view e-mail without downloading it. A new email storage system that can do fast server-side searches using Apple's V-Twin technology. File, email, print, web and FTP are under a single administration and security system. AppleShare IP 6.0 requires Mac OS 8.1 or later and Open Transport 1.3 or later. The finished AppleShare IP 6.0 is supposed to ship in the second half of 1998.

Virtual PC G3/IPX fix now available. May 19, 1998 -- Connectix has posted Virtual PC 2.0.1, which fixes the IPX problem on Power Mac G3, which previously required changing the 802.3 frame type. It also fixes some minor bugs, including a CD-ROM driver problem that prevented Mortal Kombat III and other games from installing properly.

Dragon voice recognition works on Orange Micro card. May 19, 1998 -- A company message on Orange Micro's discussion board said that the Dragon System's Naturally Speaking does work on the Orange PC 500 cards (and best on the 550), but not on the new 620. To activate the microphone input on the OrangePC 500 series cards, you need to change jumper J7 as indicated in the manual.

As for the emulators, Virtual PC doesn't yet support 16-bit sound input. Real PC does, but is too slow for Dragon System's software, which requires a minimum 166 MHz Pentium.

PowerPC Linux adds G3 support. May 19, 1998 -- The PowerPC Linux group has announced the availability of PowerPC Linux for Power Mac G3's. You can download the free Unix from the PowerPC Linux web site or order a CD-ROM for $32.

TeamWave ships Workplace 3.2 cross-platform groupware solution. May 19, 1998 -- TeamWave Software has posted TeamWave Workplace 3.2 at it's web site. TeamWave Workplace ($75, single user) is an integrated groupware solution for Macintosh, Windows, and Unix that coordinates, collaborates and shares information across the Internet. Features include shared whiteboards, chat rooms, and a customizable, persistent work environment.

PC Exchange Preferences file with extension mappings. May 18, 1998 -- A reader points out that the Macworld web site contains a PC Exchange Preferences files with extensive file extensions mappings. (For a discussion of PC Exchange extension mapping, see MacWindows Tutorials.)

Speech recognition in emulation. May 18, 1998 -- We've been receiving queries regarding speak recognition on the Mac. Michael Ory tried to get a Windows package, Dragon System's Naturally Speaking, running on RealPC 1.0.3, which has sound-in support, but it wouldn't work. If you've been able to get a Windows speech recognition package to run on a Windows emulator or coprocessor card, let us know.

Made a Mac look like Windows 95 with Kaleidoscope. May 18, 1998 -- Scott Naness has just released the Windows 95 Color scheme for Kaleidoscope 1.8.2. Kaleidoscope is a shareware program that lets you use different color schemes on a Mac. Naness's Windows 95 Color Scheme makes files, folders and windows look like Windows. The archive now contains the installer for GoMac 1.5v1, the $20 shareware Start menu and Program Bar for Mac OS.

MacWeek to go cross-platform and become e/media Weekly. May 15, 1998 -- As of August 24, 1998, MacWeek will cease its Macintosh focus and become cross-platform magazine called e/media Weekly. The renamed magazine will focus on digital content creation, including print, web publishing, video and television production. The MacWeek Online web site will continue to publish Macintosh news.

Dispute continues over whether Apple PC Compatibility Cards are Win 95 compatible. May 15, 1998 -- With Orange Micro's decision not to develop 32-bit drivers for Apple's discontinued PC Compatibility Cards (see news item May 8 below), owners of the cards are disputing Apple's claim that the cards are Windows 95 compatible. Although Windows 95 can launch, the cards don't support 32-bit drivers, long file names, DirectX, and other Windows 95 feature. Mark Fonnemann explains the issues.

Question: MS Outlook files interchangeable? May 15, 1998 -- Reader Bear Stearns asks if anyone had any luck getting the PC and Mac versions of Microsoft Outlook to use the same calendar and contact files. They seem to create different types of files that are not interchangeable. If you know, let us know.

Updated info on SOCKS and Macintosh. May 14, 1998 -- Ben Haylock of Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia sent us some good basic information about the SOCKS proxy protocol. You can find it appended to the end of our report on Macs and Microsoft Proxy Server.

New Tutorial info on NetBIOS and NetBIEU. May 14, 1998 -- Jonathan Woodard of the Encompass Group set us straight about the relation between the NetBEUI network protocol and the NetBIOS software interface and naming convention, and it's us on Windows NT (we had previously called NetBIOS a protocol.) Woodward also sent an explanation of NetBIOS over TCP/IP, which is what Thursby's DAVE uses. We've added this information to our Networking tutorial.

Better Windows emulation for 7100, 8100 with Newer G3 processors. May 13, 1998 -- For the first time, owners of Power Macintosh 7100 and 8100 can now run Windows emulators on G3 processors. Newer Technology has shipped two new MAXpowr G3 PDS upgrades for the two Mac models, which have PowerPC 601 processors, and which never had an upgrade path. Emulators run slowly on the 601, and the first-generation Power Mac 7100 and 8100 have NuBus slots and can't take current coprocessor cards. Prices start at $549.

Virtual PC doesn't support MacPicasso 3dfx accelerator. May 13, 1998 --

Although Connectix claims that Virtual PC 2.0 will work with Mac and PC 3dfx graphic accelerators, a reader claims that Virtual PC won't work with his MacPicasso 3dfx card. He said:

"Virtual PC 2.0 does not use the 3dfx glide lib properly, instead opting to directly access the standard 3dfx board, which, if you happen to not have a TechWorks 3d or Monster 3d card, but instead opted for the 30% faster MacPicasso 540 w/ 3D Overdrive, you're outta luck with VPC 2.0."

"After installing the 3dfx PC drivers provided by VPC...the device disappears, and the "device" (the Power3D card) will only show if you have a Power3D card or clone of it. Other 3dfx cards made for Mac, and I only know of one other, the one I have..., are not supported, even though they should be!"

We asked Connectix' Jorg Brown about this. He replied:

"3Dfx cards that are of the 'Rush' variety won't work, because they're not 'pure' 3Dfx accelerators. [Virtual PC has] to be able to take complete control of the card AND be able to pipe the Mac video *through* the accelerator card. So a combined 2D video & 3D card won't work."

OpenStep on Virtual PC, one person's experience. May 13, 1998 -- Several readers have asked about OpenStep on Virtual PC. According to Ted Manning, it works. He is running OpenStep 4.0 on Virtual PC 2.0. However, he can't get TCP/IP networking to run:

"Actually, installing OPENSTEP was quite easy, and it's just amazing--just like the real thing except for slightly slow screen graphics. The problem is that I can't get the network configured properly, so therefore I can't get the things I need most running (e.g., X windows with remote service and NFS file sharing). I suppose I can try to get Mk linux or PC linux running, but I like OPENSTEP (we even have some original black NeXTs in the office)."

Tenon integrates Mac and Unix Web development. May 13, 1998 -- Tenon Intersystems announced a web software development kit (SDK) that integrates Macintosh and Unix web development with a universal Apache-standard plug-in architecture. The new development tools let Macintosh developers create web plug-ins that can run on both Mac OS and on Rhapsody. Unix developers can use it to move their web applications to Mac OS.

Rhapsody, Yellow box take a back seat in new Apple OS strategy. May 12, 1998 -- At Apple's World Wide Developer's conference yesterday, acting CEO Steve Jobs announced a new OS strategy with a focus on Mac OS, and a relegation of it's cross-platform Rhapsody and Yellow Box to long-term peripheral project. Jobs announced Mac OS would become a "modern" operating system by fall of next year with Mac OS X (ten), with preemptive multitasking, memory protection, and advanced virtual memory. He also said that it would be optimized for G3 Macs.

The Rhapsody Yellow box, now in Developer Release 2, will be able run on top of Windows as well as on Mac hardware. Under former CEO Gil Amelio, Yellow Box was at the center of Apple's OS strategy. However, Jobs made it clear that this was no longer the case.

"The three most import software projects at Apple are Mac OS, Java, and QuickTime, in that order," he said. "Mac OS is our crown jewel."

"Rhapsody and Yellow box are no longer seen as the saviors of the company," said one Apple source who did not wish to be identified. "[Yellow Box] now has the time it needs to grow, and for more vertical, unique products to develop for it."

Most developers attending WWDC believed that Apple was forced to abandon it's focus on Yellow Box because it couldn't get mainstream developers such as Adobe and Microsoft to commit to completely rewriting their code for Yellow Box. However, every developer we talked to looked favorably on the new OS strategy, because Mac OS X only requires developers to rewrite a portion of their code.

Although no longer the focus of Apple's strategy, Rhapsody and Yellow Box are still active projects, as evidenced by the 16 WWDC sessions on Rhapsody and Yellow Box.

Java Speed on Mac to equal NT. May 12, 1998 -- At Apple's WWDC conference yesterday, Steve Jobs announced that by this fall, the Mac Java Virtual Machine (JVM)would run as fast or faster than the JVM on Windows NT. He said that in terms of Caffeine, the JVM in Mac OS 8.1 was 4 times slower than that in Windows NT 4.0. Part of the speed-up will be gained by licensing Symantec's Just In Time compiler for Java and integrating it in the Mac JVM. Jobs also said that Apple would work with Microsoft, Sun, Symantec, and Metrowerks to standardize the Mac JVM.

QuickTime 3 a big hit with Windows users. May 12, 1998 -- Apple said that Windows users made up more than two thirds of the 3 million downloads of QuickTime 3 since March 30.

Mac OS 8.5 to have some Mac-Windows integration refinements. May 12, 1998 -- At WWDC conference yesterday, Apple said that this September's Mac OS 8.5 (Allegro) would further integrate file translation into the navigation, including open and save dialogs and the Find File command. In addition, the PC Exchange and Mac Easy Open control panels will be combined.

Novell may hand-off development and support of Mac client. May 12, 1998 -- Sources told MacWindows that Novell is getting ready to hand-off development and support of its Mac client to a "well-known Mac networking company." The deal is to be signed within the next two weeks.

Imation and Panasonic announce USB Floppy for iMac. May 12, 1998 -- Imation and Panasonic announced the joint development of the USB SuperDisk drive for Apple's upcoming iMac consumer computer. The driver will read and write Mac and PC 1.44 MB diskettes and 720 KB diskettes, as well as Imations PC-formatted 120 MB SuperDisk. The drive will use the iMac's Universal Serial Bus, a standard developed by Intel. (See commentary below.)

Helios server software for Rhapsody released at WWDC. May 11, 1998 -- At WWDC today, Helios Software GmbH will distribute pre-release Rhapsody versions of it's AppleShare compatible server software for Unix -- Helios EtherShare, EtherShare OPI , and PDF Handshake. Helios will also announce pre-release versions of developer tools for Rhapsody, including AppleTalk Toolkit,which offers identical APIs for AppleTalk on all Helios supported server platforms.

Keyboard Express for Windows similar to QuicKeys. May 11, 1998 --MacWindows reader Carleton Britt was looking for a Windows macro program that worked similarly to CD Software's QuicKeys for Macintosh. He found it in Keyboard Express, a $25 shareware program.

Orange Micro offers $399 200 MHz card. May 10, 1998 -- Orange Micro announced the OrangePC 620 Series Windows Compatibility Card, which will start at $399 without Windows, $499 with Windows 95. The boards can also run Windows NT. One $399 bundle, the OrangePC 624, will include a 200 MHz Cyrix processor and 16 MB of RAM. The boards can be ordered with Pentium, Cyrix, or AMD processors up to 300 MHz and user upgradeable RAM up to 128 MB. All 620 series boards will come with Orange PCi 3.1 software, which supports 32-bit Windows 95 drivers. Orange Micro told MacWindows that it had cut costs by emulating the sound functions and through the use of new custom ASICs.

Although Orange Micro expects to sell most 620 cards with Windows, it is offering the Windowless version as an upgrade path for owners of software emulators, and for owners of Apple's Compatibility Card, which doesn't support 32-bit drivers. Orange Micro claims the 620 card with 200 MHz K6, 32 MB RAM runs the Ziff-Davis Winstone 98 4.5 times faster than Virtual PC, and 3.4 times faster than SoftWindows 95 5.0 (emulators on PowerMac G3/266, 64 MB). MacWindows will test the card in the near future.

Apple hoards code: Orange Micro gives up on 32-bit drivers for Apple cards. May 8, 1998 -- Orange Micro has told MacWindows that it is giving up its bid to develop 32-bit Windows drivers for Apple's discontinued PC Compatibility Cards. Orange Micro CEO Art Scotten said that Apple would not give them access to enough of Apple's code to develop the drivers. Apple's decision ends months of negotiations between the two companies. Apple would not comment.

Orange Micro's OrangePC cards now support 32-bit drivers, using version 3.0.2 of the OrangePCi software. Apple has said it will not do any further development of the PC Compatibility Card line. Owners of Apple's card had been encouraging Orange Micro to develop the drivers for them.

Commentary: iMac adopts Universal Serial Bus. May 8, 1998 -- Many Macintosh-focused web sites are decrying the fact that Apple's upcoming high-performance, $1300 iMac doesn't have printer and SCSI ports. (It does have a 10/100BaseT Ethernet port.) They say the iMac is not expandable. This point of view ignores that fact that iMac has a pair of Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports. USB is a high-speed (12 Mbit/sec) port developed by Intel, IBM, Compaq, Microsoft, and other leading PC vendors. USB is a true universal port that allows up to 127 devices to run simultaneously on a single port. In addition to keyboard and mouse, USB devices can be just about anything: printers, ZIP drives, scanners, joysticks, hard drives, telephones, modems, floppy drives, and audio devices.

Windows 95 and Windows 98 include support for USB, and Microsoft plans it for Windows NT. PC motherboards being produced today have USB connectors on them. USB hardware products started to ship this year. It is easy to imagine that when iMac is introduced in August, vendors like Iomega and HP will be lining up with USB product announcements for iMac. Other companies will offer USB converter boxes for standard Mac interfaces.

iMac is a home/education computer, so Apple needed to keep the cost down. Replacing an number of ports with USB is a practical way to do this. To condemn iMac for not using the same ports as the Mac Plus, and to ignore the growing momentum USB has in the PC world is to wear Mac-only blinders. In fact, if Macintosh is to survive, all models must eventually include USB. On higher-end Macs, Apple will most likely add USB in addition to SCSI and printer ports. Yes, USB wasn't invented by Apple. But USB is low-cost, fast, and an industry standard. MacWindows applauds Apple's decision to adopt USB.

Apple Tip: configuring QuickTime 3 for Windows for Navigator. May 8, 1998 -- Apple Tech Info Library Article 30544 is a tip about configuring the QuickTime 3 plug-in for the Windows versions of Netscape Navigator and Netscape Communicator. The tip provides information on how to configure the plug-in along with other plugins.

Correction - SoftWindows 95 and RealPC will run Windows 98. May 6, 1998 -- We erred when we said Insignia Solution's SoftWindows 95 and RealPC would not support Windows 98. In fact, Insignia is planning to make both products fully compatible with Windows 98. Leigh Dworkin, SoftWindows 95 product line manager explains:

"Please note that we have added preliminary support for Windows 98 in SoftWindows 95 5.0.3 and RealPC 1.0.3. It is not fully optimized, but it does work for the release candidate 0 of Windows 98 and I have read reports of it also working on the publicly available beta. These versions are freely downloadable from our web site as updates from RealPC 1.0 and SoftWindows 95 5.0, which do not have Windows 98 support built in."

We apologize to our readers and to Insignia Solutions for this error.

Connectix will ship fix for VPC/G3/IPX problem next week. May 6, 1998 -- Connectix has told MacWindows that it intends to ship an upgrade to Virtual PC 2.0 that will fix the problem of IPX networking on Power Mac G3 models. Currently, Connectix recommends changing the Ethernet frame type of both the Netware server and the Mac from 802.3 to 802.2. The new fix will make this work around unnecessary.

Windows 98 runs on Mac via OrangePC, Virtual PC. May 5, 1998 -- MacWindows has succeeded in running a beta copy of Windows 98 on Mac using an out-of-the-box Orange Micro OrangePC 550 card as well as a standard copy of Connectix Virtual PC 2.0. We did not conduct any kind of tests in Windows 98, but just launched the beta OS and clicked around. Neither company has announced if it will sell Windows 98 with their products. Microsoft says Windows 98 will ship in June.

Insignia offers rebates for RealPC. May 5, 1998 -- Insignia Solutions is offering a $20 rebate for people who buy its RealPC emulator in the U.S. between May 1 and September 30. (Instructions are on specially marked boxes.) Education customers can receive a rebate of $20 on copies of SoftWindows 95 purchased between February 20 and June 30, 1998 via specially marked boxes at campus bookstores.

OrangePC video problems in all-in-one G3's. May 4, 1998 -- Don Barron points out the Power Macintosh G3 all-in-one computers sold under the Apple Education Program don't support PC video on the internal monitor for Orange Micro's OrangePC compatibility cards. That is, the only way to display Windows with an OrangePC card in these Macs is to connect an external monitor to the all-in-one G3.
