Can anyone help?

I need software to run one of these, Windows would be OK but Mac even better.

Happy to see how I can help you in return.

There is no Mac software to run the program so you would have to use an emulator program to run it on a Mac. If you have a MS type machine and have the Fantom Facts software, you will have to adjust the date of your computer to the date of the software to run it. That is, unless you have the password for the specific machine that that you have the software loaded on. Been there, done that, it's been a total PITA.  Check on the search function to see what we've gone through recently to get it to work on an MS machine.

A VM ware will allow it to be used on a Mac, but it is wonky at times.

Check out this Thread.

 

Fantom Facts Machine issue

 

As I mentioned above the software will only work within 30 days of the "software date" so from time to time you will have to reset the date on your Windows machine for the software to work.  That is unless you have a specific password for the computer you are running the software on.
