Re: getting Sheepshaver to continue to work with Catalina

Thank you for our help, Ronald. And forgive me for using the wrong term, I said launcher, and I'm sure I should have said application. I assume I got the application, I went here - https://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=7360 I downloaded - https://www.emaculation.com/sheepshaver/Shee...

getting Sheepshaver to continue to work with Catalina

I'm a bit of a novice with all this stuff, though I've been using Sheepshaver for years. A novice because of how great it is, I don't have to do much fiddling, it just works and works and works. Until last week, that is, when I finally upgraded my Mac Mini from OS 10.9 to 10.15 Catalina. I have a lo...

DropStuff registration number

Maybe I'm tired and missing something, but I just had to reinstall everything on a laptop, and the whole Sheepshaver is perfect and back to as it was, with one exception. I use DropStuff and UnStuffIt to move files in and out. DropStuff is now asking me for a registration number, and in addition to ...

Re: get OS 9 to automatically open an .sit file with StuffIt

That second idea works great, and I would still like to try your first idea just to see if I can also get that to work. I have an Internet Config Extension, ver. 2.0.5, in the extensions folder, in the system folder of my system 9.0.4 But I'm not seeing how to access it, and do the re-association yo...

When I print .ps files in Sheepshaver, about every third one now comes over to the OSX side and has as its default application Microsoft Messenger. If I don't notice, and just use the apple-O keystroke to open it, it launche...

Re: can't install in Windows 7

Yes, the issue seems to be loading CD's.
There's nothing otherwise wrong with the CD Drive, it loads, plays, writes, both CD's and DVD's when on the Windows 7 side.
Any thoughts?
