I'm currently trying to setup SheepShaver on my friends Windows Vista Home Premium and on my first attempt after setting everything up correctly (or so I thought) I was greeted with the "Cannot map RAM: No Error" message upon trying to start the emulator.
I had the memory set to 512mb of RAM so I thought I'd try to lower it. 256mb did the same thing and so did 1024 but 128mb and lower would load up the startup screen and pieces of the bar down the bottom would load up and before it reaches the desktop it just crashes out.
I've done a lot of reading through the forums and so far I have tried checking my "Ignore Illegal Memory Accesses" box and starting the emulator but it did nothing. I've also grabbed the Mac OS 9 boot image from the Redundant Robot website and booting with that but it does the same thing to me.
It could be worth mentioning my friend has got and an Intel dual core CPU however she is running a 32 bit OS. I also have cdenable.sys in the right folder to prevent the error message but I know that is unrelated.
Here is a copy of my stderr file after booting into OS 9 and crashing before the desktop with 128mb ram set:

Here is my stdout output:
SheepShaver V2.3 by Christian Bauer and Mar"c" Hellwig
Reading ROM file...
Using SDL/waveout audio output
Detected CPU features: MMX SSE SSE2 SSE3 SSSE3
PowerPC CPU emulator by Gwenole Beauchesne
WARNING: Unknown DiskStatus(6)
The versions of SS I used were the 5/5/2010 release and then eventually the August 30, 2010 release. My SDL dll was included in the 5/5/2010 release and my GTK release I got from here http://www.emaculation.com/sheepshaver/ ... -setup.exe
as per this windows setup guide: http://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/sheepshaver_setup
My ROM files are from the 5/5/2010 release (Mac_OS_ROM) and the newworld86.rom file from Redundant Robots site (I also tried removing the extension from the newworld86 ROM file).
The only other thing that could be pertinent to all this is that all the time I have been attempting to boot OS 9 from an image. Either the one from the Redundant Robot site or a toast image of OS9 I have.
In a last ditch attempt just now I tried out the old world ROM that came with the 5/5/2010 release and if I set SS to use 128mb of RAM it will now boot up and stay seemingly stable but I would still like to find a way to push forwards and increase the RAM as this doesn't make much sense to me. On my own computer I use the included new world ROM just fine with 512mb of RAM using the exact same files I'm using right now.
Thanks for your help and I hope you have enough information to go on here hehe.
