'mps16c on mac with softwindows'

Has anyone tried running the PICStart 16c (v1.3) on a Macintosh with Softwindows
2.1 Windows emulation?  I can get other developer's systems working in this
mode, but the communication for the PICStart just doesn't quite "catch".

The manual for the PICStart is very sketchy on communication parameters such as
Baud rate, parity, etc.  I've tried common combinations of these, hardware
handshaking and Xon/Xoff, too.  I know that the signals are different connecting
for the Mac are different than RS-232 but the special hardware I got with
Softwindows is supposed to take care of most of those cases.

Any sources for information on this, or experience out there?  Please, no guff
about the Macintosh.  I just can't give up my Mac even though all the
engineering hardware is made for the PC.

Paul:

I'm in the same boat. The problem is that Microchip chose to use a bastard
communications protocol for the serial link to the programmer. They aren't
going to be bothered doing anything to make it useable for us Mac people.

SoftWindows 3.0 was released on Monday. The comms emulation should be
better than that in 2.x - it's certainly had more testing.
