OS 8.6 Apple Japanese Lang Kit lost when re-installing system-where?
Posted on 2003-03-28
In changing to ADSL, I re-installed my (USA) system software (twice) due to a PPPoE, TCP/IP conflict. Now Japanese Language Kit software is no longer attached to my e-mail, Word, Internet, etc. In trying to re-connect using Japanese Language Register in Apple Extras, I get message "You must install Language Kit software to use this application".
I have "Language Register" in the Apple Extras folder.
I have "Language Kit Extension" in my Extensions folder.
I have "Language Kit Preferences" in my Preferences folder.
I don't know where my original CD is (in what country-in what box, I bought it in June 1999).
I didn't back everything up before re-installing, because it said nothing would be lost. (my mistake!)
1 Is the software possibly still somewhere on my hard disk?
Where should I look? It isn't under Japanese Language.
I don't know another name, so Finder hasn't helped.
2 Is there somewhere I can quickly get this "old" software for my
PowerBook G3, using OS 8.6?
3 Will Apple help me? I'm not sure, but I think I would have
registered it at that time. If there's a chance, how do I contact
them (I'm in Japan--calling doesn't work very well)
