Latest JacqCAD ShareWare release
opt-Click here to download only the latest 4.34b6 release notes (which are included in the above). No password needed.
JacqCAD requires a PowerPC-based Mac computer (G3, G4 or G5) running
Mac OS X 10.4 or earlier with Classic installed, or OS 9.
The above compressed archive requires a password to open. Please
fill in this form.
I will reply with the necessary password. After spending 20 years
developing the software I am curious about how many people are finding
it to be of interest and whether it would be useful to continue work
You will need the FREE Stuffit Expander utility in order to expand the .sitx compressed file (because of the passwording). Stuffit Expander can be downloaded at no cost from Smith Micro . It is a wonderful utility which expands a very wide variety of Macintosh, Windows and Unix compressed formats - a "must have" for any Mac user!
The full version of Stuffit, which does cost a small amount, allows you to create compressed archives; I find it very useful, but you do not need it to access JacqCAD.
When downloading in Safari you may get an error message if you have the "[x] Open "safe" files after downloading" checked in Safari > Preferences > General. That tells Safari to "open" any file it downloads, which in the case of a compressed file means it will try to expand it - at which point it runs into the passwording and reports an error... Similarly, if you simply double-click on the .sitx file, Mac OS X may again call on its Archive Utility to expand the file and it will again report an error due to the password. To avoid this issue, simply drag and drop the .sitx file onto Stuffit Expander and it will handle it correctly.
Another issue, now solved, is that Safari under Mac OS X 10.4 (but not
10.3 or 10.5 or 10.6) would append ".txt" to the downloaded file - so
it would now appears as JacqCAD_4.30b7_14apr10.sitx.txt. You would have
to remove the ".txt" before you could feed the archive to Stuffit Expander.
We have just discovered (June 5, 2010) that Stuffit Expander 8.0.2 (which is the latest
version recomended for OS X 10.2.x) does not handle passworded
.SITx archives - instead it immediately reports "error 17507" without
ever giving the user a chance to enter the password.
