Goldenseal for Macintosh

What kind of Macintosh do I need to run the Goldenseal software?

Goldenseal runs on any Mac from the past 10 years or so.

System Requirements

The OS X version of Goldenseal runs native on any version of Mac OS X (including 10.2 Jaguar, 10.3 Panther, 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard and 10.7 Lion). You can use it with either PPC or Intel-based Macs.

The OS 9 version requires a PPC Mac with System 8.6 or newer (you can run the single-user version on System 7 or newer, though it has been a while since we've tested with such antique systems).

Other Requirements

The Goldenseal program and a typical company file will take up about 20 megabytes of hard disk space.

NOTE-- 20 megabytes is about .02 gigabytes, so it requires only a tiny portion of a modern, many-gigabyte hard drive!

Goldenseal requires 8 to 10 megabytes of RAM.

NOTE-- 10 megabytes is about .01 gigabytes, so Goldenseal requires only a tiny portion of the RAM in a modern, multi-gigabyte computer!

The data entry windows requre at least a 800 x 600 screen resolution, although you'll probably appreciate having more pixels.

NOTE-- Modern LCD screens are usually at least 1280 x 1000 pixels, so you'll have plenty of display area for Goldenseal!
