Someone posted about that (MC12) the other day ...maybe not here, but for all us (L)inux (USERS) ...it seem to load and run just fine on Wine ...Linux Mint 19.1 / wine packages from their repository ..

and thanks for posting about MicroCAP ..Ran ver 4 for years (cause thats all I could afford)

speaking of SPICE and circuit simulations, another similar tool Microcap is now a free download. Seems the author has decided to retire or otherwise close shop and has made the tool freely available.

This interesting article shows prototypes like I see in projects in this group, are like the test and development prototypes for many analog ICs. A look into the days before SPICE simulations became the standard.
