This is good news - especaily as I'm considering migrating to Macs from doze. My congratulations to the developers on their continuing hard work.

TBH I gave up on VRPC some time ago with issues related to the above comments. -If its installed on a PC that has regular changes to its setup (network especially) the dreaded invalid licence error pops-up requiring an application to the developers for yet another licence... ...makes the software unusable if your settings are changing on a more than daily basis.

Is this a whinge? I hope not, it's just there are other copy-protection methods & I'd like to be able to use V_RPC.

P.S. On the subject of licencing there is NO legal impediment for running any OS from a memory stick if that suits the user. If as is common for home use you have a licence to run one copy on one computer at any one time, what's the difference (apart from convenience) between installing onto transferable media or installing/uninstalling each time you move computer? But my terms of use state that the licence is tied to a particular computer... ...tricky when PC's can be 'upgraded' endlessly.
