Guest PC 1.8 released

Lismore Software Systems today released Guest PC 1.8, an update to the Mac OS X application that enables users to create and manage a virtual x86 system on a Mac. Users can install a Microsoft Windows operating system, and can access applications available only for Windows compatible computers. Version 1.8 brings support for USB devices, and Guest PC supports ActiveSync to synchronize and install applications for PDAs, as well as SmartPhones. The software enables users to download maps and receive waypoints or tracks from GPS units, can scan images, print to USB printers, connect external USB storage devices, and utilize other USB-based devices. The update also fixes several bugs related to OpenOffice failing to run, incorrect IDE disk detection in OpenBSD, and some CPU/FPU emulation errors. Guest PC 1.8 is priced at $70, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
