I have Lotus 1-2-3 for Macintosh Version 1.0 that I originally used on an LC II, then a Performa with O S Systems 7.6,8.0,8.1,8.5 and finally 9.0. My first problem occurred when my desktop icon for Lotus would not open Lotus, that is it would not launch, Lotus 1-2-3 would flash across the top of window but no spread sheet would appear. I was able to launch Lotus by going to my files and opening an old Lotus spread sheet. This worked for probably a year, but now I can't get Lotus to launch except from an old Zip disk where I backed up my Lotus files a couple of years ago. The program works fine once it is launced but what have I done to make it behave this way. The original program is on floppies and uses an expander from 1992 or 1993. Anyone else have this kind of problem? How did you solve? Or did you just go on to Excel or some other spreadsheet?

You might have to track down an …
