Can you swap project files between Mac & PC?

I do not understand the question.

There is no Mac version of Acid that I am aware of. Especially dating back to 7.0a...which is years ago.

How exactly would you swap projects to a Mac?

It's Windows only for Acid Pro 7

have a need for two people across the internet to access and add to the same file via a common platform. thought maybe there would be some way of sending and recieving project files so that each could have mix capabilities.

Can't a Mac user use Boot Camp to load up ACID?

Of course, but then the Mac is basically a PC running Windows. And since both are running ACID 7.0a under Windows, file exchange should work nicely.

Just keep in mind that if user 1 sends a file off to user 2, both make changes, and user 2 sends the file back to user 1, user 1 either uses the new file from user 2 and loses his own changes, or keeps his own changes and ignores the changes from user 2. There's no merge function so they have to decide which person is currently working while the other waits to get the changes sent back.

Would version 10 help in that respect or is there a simple (inexpensive) way to move between both machines other than Boot Camp?

The project and the media files associated by it can be converted to a zip archive with in ACID by using "Save As" with the "ACID Project with embedded media" option.. This is just a file that can be sent to any PC or Mac.

The problem is that there is no ACID for OSX. You could run ACID on a Bootcamped Mac or using one of the VM type technologies to run ACID.

So, what every one is asking: Once you get the ACID project from your Windows PC to a Mac, how do you plan on running ACID in order to use the project+media?
