I'll second SheepShaver. We use it in an OS X 10.11 VM we host on ESXi running on a Xserve to keep an Omnis 7 app up and running. It's kinda funny to see that much virtualization and technology going in to support an ancient application, but I suppose it's cheaper than rewriting the thing in something that runs on a modern OS. This was the solution after I ran out of old Macs to replace ones when the hardware went bust.

As to your Omnis 7.0 or 7.1 I'm afraid I can't help.
