Program good... but doesn't run easily on all platforms.

It does not run in MS Windows 2000... It does not run in MS Windows XP environment either... ... at least not without hours and hours of fiddling.
It WILL RUN on MAC with OS 9! YEAH!
Hubby and I were only willing to put in 4 hours (including looking at stupid online help) trying to get it to run on one of our Windows machines. The disk will launch but not install. This may or may not be due to our having more than one harddrive and CD player having letter "F" designation.
In any case, my advice is not to get the kids all excited and then sit down expecting a quick install while they are waiting... and waiting.
It did run on our MAC and it is an enjoyable program. In fact, I will go so far as to say that it is an EXCELLENT piece of learning software.
My advice, however, is to consider our difficulties in getting this 'older' software to run before you purchase. It might be better to wait for an updated version that will no doubt be out around Christmas time.
