Notes for OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion

(available from  Jul 2012)

Current & Recent Production Versions of Wordshark & Numbershark:


Our Wordshark 5 works well on Mountain Lion, and is available on a USB, DVD and as an Installed/Activated product. There is no CD or network product for Wordshark 5.


Minor issue: The first DVD release of Wordshark 5 invites reinstall  whenever inserted (this has to be ignored):  This is fixed in DVD release 2, available from May 2014.


Wordshark and  Numbershark 4.08  (and 4.09, network only):

Mountain Lion users normally enjoy good service from our USB, Activated, CD and Network products from our release 4.08 - 4.09.


For Numbershark CD 4.08 ONLY, ensure the CD is labelled “4.08R”, as the “4.08” is for PC only.  (Wordshark 4.08 is Mac/PC compatible)

The CD products, USB, network and activation products all normally  run.   You may find you need to adjust security   settings.

Wordshark and Numbershark 4.07:

The CD products require a patch to resolve  an “Error Code 18”  OR you may consider an upgrade. USB, network and activation products do run.  You may find you need to adjust security  settings.

Wordshark and Numbershark 4.05 and 4.06:

The CD products are not compatible: If you have these, consider an upgrade. USB, network and activation products do run.  You may find you need to adjust security settings.
