Hi! I'm trying to install the Accordance Essentials Suite (version 6.8, I believe) onto my Acer Aspire One netbook. I've installed Basilisk II, which is running great. However, since the netbook has no CD drive, I've created an ISO disk image on my Mac and have it mounted as a CD drive on the netbook using Microsofts virtual CD emulation driver. The CD shows up fine in Basilisk...I can navigate to the FOR 68K MAC folder and see the Vise installer logo and the Accordance 68K file.

The problem comes when I try to execute the installer. It give me an error saying "The application program Essential Installer 68K could not be opened, because an error of type -39 occurred." This also happens if I move the two files to a virtual hard drive and try to run the installer. I've looked at the Get Info dialog for each file and they are not locked on the hard drive.

Any hints or alternative installation methods I can try? Thanks!

We have no experience with using an ISO and reading it in BasiliskII. I suspect that the files are still corrupted by Windows. You could borrow a CD Drive and try to install from that.

OK, thanks, that could be, though the file was never touched by Windows except to mount the drive (the ISO was created on a Mac). Is there any history of reading the files over a network? Or is it possible to obtain downloadable copies? I don't know anyone with a portable CD-ROM drive, unfortunately, and am unemployed so I don't have the money to buy one.

We have had to find an alternative way to install to the emulator for users on 64bit VISTA or Windows 7. We do this by creating .HFV files which are the partitions/hard drives in the emulator. We have two DVDs now with prepared HFVs: the Primary 8.4-PC and the Graphics-PC. These make it much easier to install to the emulator. We also prepare for download as HFV files other CDs that are not worth mastering and distributing as HFVs. We have not yet done this for the Zondervan Essential, but I will pass your email on to our Tech Support, and he will let you know when this file is available.

Thanks, Helen. You're a peach!
