I'm trying to help a friend who has just purchase BW 6 and is installing it on a Mac with Virtual PC.

Here's his situation:

Problem: As I come to the end of installing BW (and I've done this several times) I get the same messages. First I am told that BW could not load the file "fontlog.txt." Then I hit "OK". Then I get another message--the dread "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." Once again, I hit "OK." THEN I try to go on like there's no problem and I start up BW (since it is installed). The start up begins (I get the opening screen) but then I get the following from BW: "No valid Registration File was found. Please run SETUP." So I go back into drive D and find the Setup program in BW. I start it and it works through the whole install process again and once again I get the couldn't-load-"fontlog.txt" and then the illegal-operation-shut-down bummer. When I try to then start BW, I once again get the thing about no valid registration file.

Anybody else run into this?
Any help offered would be appreciated. Thanks!

Help no longer needed. Thanks for reading my post, even if you didn't know the answer.

It might be useful to other VPC users in the future if you can easily post the solution.

Hi, Charlie,

The solution ended up being -- buy a PC and install BW there rather than hassling with limited harddrive space and an old version of Virtual PC.

Not really much help, I'm afraid.
