I have a need to run Freehand MX 11.0.2 in a Snow Leopard 10.6.8 virtual machine (with VirtualBox).  Apparently, there is a known problem with the Rosetta install in this OS not allowing certain apps to launch and run.  Adobe provided an "Adobe 10.6 fix" for this issue back around 2011/2012, which apparently includes Freehand (even though this version predates to Macromedia).  I can no longer find this "patch" file on any known archive, repository or index site.  Does anyone have this fix available that they can please provide it to me?

Adobe has removed ALL public download links for installs and updates

-CS6 (and earlier) are no longer sold or supported by Adobe, and no authorized
-vendor has copies to sell... not by disc, and not by download of an installer

 

The Adobe employee who advises volunteer helpers (I am one) said this on 12-18-2019
"Adobe employees will no longer be engaging with Creative Suite customers to provide support via chat, phone, or social media"
That means that you will not be given a download link by contacting customer support

Thanks - I'll take those steps and see if the app then runs.
