I did the same and Executor deals well enough with DNAStrider and
Amplify, but it crashes on certain activities with MacPlasmap. Did you
have any similar experience?
I finally decided to buy a product called CloneMap from CGC Sientific
(no affiliation, blah blah ...).
It is kind of combined DNA Strider and MacPlasmap (which they sell, too)
for Windows. It works quite well, though the plasmid drawing is not as
comfortable as in MacPlasmap. Unfortunately, it is not shareware, but
the 245 USD (academic) is still reasonable. Executor will cost you 150
Their web sites are:   www.cgcsci.com    and      www. ardi.com
Hope that helps!
