Thanks Grant.  It doesn’t run under OS9 in SheepShaver, but does run on 7.5.5 in Basilisk.  

Seems like the dv files do contain a nice, indexed hypertext version of the developer docs.  Would love to be able to extract the content to HTML and make a Dash docset, but I don’t think that’s possible. 

Quickview was by a company named Altura and I think it might be the same file format as “Microsoft Multimedia Viewer”.  We’re talking windows 3.1 era stuff here.  I don’t think there are any converters that survive to this day, (if any ever existed at all).

Oh well.
