I read a post about Winworldpc on this forum. Then I went to the site. I think that because winworldpc was posted here, emaculation accepts winworldpc. After looking at the front page, it seems legal. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7549&p=42880#p42880
I found StuffIt Deluxe 4.5 for download there. But it is a ISO file.
I don't know how to use it. The Setting up Basilisk II for 142 Windows guide notes about using ISO files:
"Detour for 64-Bit Windows users only
As 64 bit windows machines can't use the cd rom driver, you need to create an image of the Mac OS install CD. You can do this with e.g. Nero.
In order to boot from the CD image, you have to edit the Basilisk142 preferences file. It is located in your Basilisk142 folder, and is called “BasiliskII_prefs”.
Click OK in the Basilisk GUI. This will save the current preferences.
Click Cancel to close the GUI.
Edit the preferences file with e.g. Notepad and set the cdrom entry to the path to the Mac OS install CD-Rom image. Save the file. See below for an example:http://www.emaculation.com/lib/exe/fetc ... os8_6a.png
It also says "On 32-bit Windows systems you can boot from a Mac OS Install CD-ROM. On 64-Bit Windows systems, you can't use a real CD. And for Basilisk 142, there is a trick needed to boot from a Mac OS Install CD-ROM. It is described in the section “Detour for 64-Bit Windows users only”. "
It doesn't say if all Basilisk 142 users need to do this, or only 64- bit Windows users.
The whole guide doesn't say what do with ISO files that are that of a application, StuffIt Deluxe 4.5. Otherwise, it says about using a Mac OS 8 install CD. You have to have a Mac OS 8 install CD and insert it:
"At “Available cd's” select the driveletter of your CD ROM drive that will contain your Mac OS 8 install CD and click the arrows pointing left. The CD drive letter shows up under “Installed cd's”
Insert your Mac OS 8 CD in the CD/DVD drive you indicated in the step above"
I put cdenable.sys in \windows\system32\drivers and then clicked CD-ROM enabled. Then I clicked my CD drive letter and clicked the arrow pointing left so it went to the list of Installed Cds.
I inserted a CD-ROM with Sapphire drivers. Basilisk would look violet when it started and then System 7.5 start normally. I tried with a Documentation library CD that would mean I would see a gray screen in Basilisk for a while before System 7.5 would load. Then a dialog box would claim the CD-ROM was unreadable. And ask me if I wanted to initialize it. Both CDs asked if I wanted to initialize.
Does this mean CD-ROMs don't work? I have a 32-bit bit Windows version, so they should work. Or is it because my version of Basilisk II is older than the August 27, 2008 version?
My version of Basilisk II 142 is old. The modification date of Basilisk II.exe is 22.7.2001. I don't have the full version of System 7.5, instead I have something that contains only a few Control Panels. My System 7.5 doesn't have the Control Strip either. Like the one here: http://www.emaculation.com/lib/exe/fetc ... ilisk8.jpg
. My version of System 7.5 comes from a hfv file called Starterdisk.hfv. My versions System folder is only 9.6 MB in size, and contains only 109 files. I see that the full System 7.5.3 takes 37,954 MB: http://www.emaculation.com/lib/exe/fetc ... ilisk7.jpg
. My version of System 7.5 is System 7.5.5.
Should I use the version in Setting up Basilisk 142 for Windows instead? I already downloaded it. I could then follow the instructions in Setting up Basilisk 142 for Windows.
I would need StuffIt Deluxe 4.5 to compress a plug-in I made for Escape Velocity. I used Dropstuff. It creates a file called Archive.sit. But if you double click that, you get a message that the application that created the file can't be found. Even if the type /creator codes exist: SIT5 SIT!. Also, if you drop it on Stuffit Expander, you will get a extra plug-in that has .1 at the end of the file name. The extra plug-in is otherwise exactly the same. Slightly longer description here: http://www.ambrosiasw.com/forums/index. ... &p=2099357
. I am hoping that StuffIt Deluxe does not create .1 plug-ins.
So, how can I use the StuffIt Deluxe ISO file in Basilisk? By burning it to a disc with Nero and then adding the file to the Basilisk II preferences file? Then I would type cdrom and then where the file is.
Winworldpc has abandonware. Applications and operating systems. I can't buy StuffIt Deluxe 4.5, because Aladdin Systems no longer exists. It changed into Allume and then SmithMicro. Version 4.5 is no longer for sale, I get a new version when I click StuffIt Deluxe for Mac under Products. Therefore SmithMicro loses no money if I use the old version. So I have no officially legal way of getting version 4.5. Oh, and the version I can buy is only for Mac OS X 10.5 or newer.
So I hope I get help on how to use the ISO file in Basilisk. I have no way of buying it, as I described.
If I could actually install StuffIt Deluxe 4.5, then I could give the Ambrosia forum members the plug-in without a .1 plug-in. I hope at least, that StuffIt Deluxe would be better. Ambrosia Software is the corporation that made it, and people can download the file there from a place called Add-ons.
