You shouldn't need a Mac emulator for that... you can simply transfer your hypercard stack to Windows on a floppy/Zip/CD, and open it in MC directly (or at least you could in 2.3, the last version I tried this in). Just make sure you choose the "all files" filter in the Open dialog box from within MC. It'll strip off the resource fork, but you can't use that in Windows anyway.

  Yes, Basilisk II is a Mac emulator for PC's.  I did try downloading MetaCard and running it, but I can't get it to work.  Basilisk II emualtes a 68k Mac, and the current MetaCard download does not have a 68k engine.  Does anyone have any idea where I could download MetaCard with a 68k engine?  What I am trying to do here is port some HyperCard stacks to Windows.
