Hi,

 

I need to find Snow Leopard Server to install Freehand in a new iMac 27" with Mountain Lion on Parallels 8.

 

I've seen SL Server in SMARTSHOP: http://enqurrvbpoii.lowcostoem.com/browse/search/?q=SNOW+LEOPARD+SERVER  in an OEM download version to $79,95

 

Is it a reliable site?. Do you know a better site for this?

 

Many thanks in advance.

    $20 - USA & Canada: Call 800-MY-APPLE and ask for part number MC588Z/A:

    Be sure to download the Snow Leopard patch for Freehand from the Adobe site.

    Try calling The Apple Store in Spain and see if they are selling it; for example, it turns out it is for sale in Germany.

     

    If not, send me an email - my screenname at AOL and I can help out, too!

    You should have few problems installing Freehand MX and Snow Leopard Server in Parallels 8.  Remember to download the Snow Leopard patch from the Adobe website:

    Parallels has a 14 day free trial for download:

    Please post (or provide the information for me to post) on the MacRumors thread how to call The Apple Store in Spain and any other additional information that would assist other users in Spain that need Snow Leopard Server.

     

    GOOD LUCK!

    A technician who works with Apple products, but does not belong to Apple, tells me that installing Snow Leopard Server in a latest 27" iMac "is not valid nor recommended".

    What question did you ask of this technician?

     

    Yes, you cannot install Snow Leopard Server on the latest 27" iMac; but that is not the pertinant question for our discussion.

     

    You can install Parallels 8 on the latest 27" iMac and then install Snow Leopard Server into Parallels!  That is the whole point of virtualization (at least in this instance)!

     

    Thank you for the source information for obtaining SLS in Spain.  I've posted it over at my thread on MacRumors.

    You should have little or no problems installing Snow Leopard Server into Parallels 8. Follow my step by step instructions for Snow Leopard Server (NOT Snow Leopard Client) at my MacRumors thread linked above.

    Angel:

     

    Thanks for the gracious offer: I hope to be able to take you up on it some day!

     

    There is a specific graphics technology that Apple now uses in Preview that is not supported by Parallels; I forget its name.

     

    But, can't you just use Preview in Mountain Lion, which should continue to work fine?
