Road And Rec software problem

Anyone out there know how to get an old Road and Rec program to work on a Mac or even Windows 8 ? like transferring it to another program. Not real computer literate but can get help

Do you want MapSource "Program" installed or do you want the R&R Maps which is not a program?

You can install Mapsource and R&R maps on Windows 8 and all other MS operating systems:

Copy disk to folder on hard drive that you create. Remove disc.
Go to that folder and find install program and install it.
Go to some web site and update it to 6-13-7 or newer if you gamble

It's doable on a Mac, but might not be worth the effort. First the R&R map image has to be converted to Mac format using a windows computer and an app called MapConverter. Download and description is here. Then the resulting map image has to be moved to the mac and then installed into BaseCamp. No idea how well it works on a modern windows machine, I used it on a XP instal running in a VMware box on my Mac.
