Inorganic and Organic simulations do not work on some Intel Macs

Because of a bug in the Adobe Director version used by the virtual laboratories, the Inorganic and Organic simulations do not work on certain Intel Macs including MacBooks, iMacs, and Mac Minis. The simulations appear to work fine on MacBook Pros and Mac Pros. The current recommended solution to this problem is to install a Windows emulator such as Parallels or VM Fusion and then install the simulations in the Windows environment. This is a satisfactory solution and in most cases the simulations will run faster (and cooler for laptops) when running in the Windows environment.
