My daughter got a CD-ROM in Witch magazine and "Director
player 5" is required. The player is not included on the CD-Rom.
I've looked everywhere for a place to download a copy for Mac
running under OS 9.2.
Anybody know where I can find a copy of Director player 5 for
the Mac/OS 9.2 or a way to play the Macromind based CD-ROM?
That sounds like a CD from the last century. You should be
able to download Shockwave Player 10.1 from
and that should be backwards-compatible for earlier content.
However, a number of major changes have been made since then so I
cannot guarantee that it will work.
Is there not an executable file (projector) on the CD-ROM?
Does double-clicking on that not launch the *.dir files?
As James (openspark) mentioned above, it sounds like a very
old version of
Director was used. Director 5 is about 10 or so years old.
I've recently been
helping people update Director content from old versions to
the latest one. If
you'd like to give me more info on what's on that CD of
yours, I may be able to
Otherwise, I do have a trial version of Director 6 (PC and
Mac) available. I could
give you access the the installation files and you can create
your own 'player'
for the CD files.
