Reinstall AppleWorks using the AppleWorks CD or if it came with your computer, the Software Restore CD (choose to restore Applciations), or use Pacifist to find the AW6 Package (.pkg) and install that.
Download the 6.2.9 updater, and run it.
I think I did not explain clearly.
I only have Panther on my Ti-Pb
and no partition either. As far as
the Appleworks,I have the original
software & the 6.2.9. updater. Can
you please tell me in detail what's the
safest way of doing this ?
The safest way of doing it is to just follow the instructions Apple gives you as to installing AW6.
You say you have the original software, do you have it on a CD, or is it already on your computer? I'm not really understanding what you mean and for that I'm sorry.
In order to get AppleWorks back you have to reinstall it from a CD (An AppleWorks CD in your case), and then you can run the updater. If you already have AppleWorks installed on the computer, you can run the updater.
I have the Appleworks on the cd. As I mentioned my problem is not having OS9, therfore not being able to install the Appleworks & the updater. Since I've had the Appleworks since before the X came around this version does not run on X natively & asks for OS9 when I attempt to install.
You will probably have to install OS9 (just install it on the same partition as Panther) and enable Classic.
AppleWorks will install with OS9, then you can update it to an OSX version.
You had better install "everything" because if you run an update like the last one (6.2.9) it wants all the files to be present, and warns you to install missing ones if you did a custom install.
You can delete your OS9 installation later if you don't need it. Before you do be sure to grab all the relevant files for AppleWorks (ie the application itself in the OS9 Applications folder, and the files in the System folder it needs to work). Check the installation log to be sure you get them all.
