CodeWarrior 8 on Mac

I have been using CW development tools v8.3 in Windows for a while. I wanted to move some work to my Mac platform options. These are the desktop versions of CW.

Unfortunately I did not get the updates for the Mac version


1. I am assuming the updates for the Mac OS as per this ref:

are for the desktop version.


2. I have the following hardware/Mac OS configs and I am not sure which the Mac version works under.

a.) iMac Intel Core 2 Duo: OS 10.5.8

b.) iMac Power PC G4: OS 10.4.11/OS9.2,– has the option of either OSX or Classic OS.

c.) Power Mac G3 OS 9.2.2 – Already has CW Pro 5 and CW Pro 7 depending on startup


3. Before I go off and upgrade/patch the Mac 8.0 to 8.3 does it require the license file. If so how do I get this license code back as I registered my original CW product way back, about CW Pro Release 1, and I have only been getting the ‘Renewal’ versions. The original license file was lost with a computer crash years ago.


I want to move back to the Mac preferably the G4 or G3 as I am doing some ugly pointer to pointer to pointer and so on work. The Mac is a bit easier, particularly the G3/G4, to do some debug work vs Windows.
