I don't recall if it needs an auth key or not, but this was printed
on a sticker on the CD jacket:


It's version 3.2, and it runs on Win2K, WinXP, and Mac OS X 10.1.2+.
Maybe WINE will work.  It says it'll work on any memory card format,
although it doesn't state whether it cares which brand of card.
I'm guessing not.

Good luck.
