The other mystery is that the identical configuration works on my PPC (PM G5) without the memory error. Is there separate code for PPC and Intel or perhaps they load memory differently?

The other big question is why running the identical disk image and settings in older versions of SheepShaver did not run into the illegal memory problem?

"Ignore memory access errors" did the trick. It now opens in the latest build. Is it dangerous to run this way? Could it overwrite memory used by other applications?

I found it. Here's the results of running Sheepshaver build 2009-07-26 from Terminal on my MBP. The OS 9.0.4 disk image runs fine on Sheepshaver 2009-03-19: Yidzhin-Norbu-MPB:~ thewizard$ cd /Users/thewizard/Desktop/Sheepsaver\ stuff/SheepShaver Yidzhin-Norbu-MPB:SheepShaver thewizard$ /Users/thewiz...

I've been able to run PageMaker 6.5 and 7. I'm using ATM 4.6.2. I've run it on both PPC and Intel computers. A real life-saver. We have hundreds, if not thousands, of PageMaker files going back to PM v3. You can use PM 6.5 or 7 to import files from older versions which allows you to import them into...

I emptied out the shared folder and tried again. Doesn't help. March build boots fine, but July build crashes.

I have an identical installation of Fontographer installed in classic on my PM G5 running Tiger. Generally, it can be installed by dragging the folder. I just ran it in Classic and contrary to my prior statement, there is no sound on opening a font. Sounds come while editing. It crashes just as it's...

Fontographer crashes in Sheepshaver

Fontographer is one of those great classic Apps I'd like to keep running so I can maintain some old fonts I created. I can launch the app (last version v4.1.5) in Sheepshaver running os 9.0.4 but when I try to open a font file, it crashes. It seems to happen around the time it usually makes a funny ...

MBP problem is not cured by extensions off

I tried turning off extensions while starting Sheepshaver on my MBP running 10.5.8. The splash screen comes up saying extensions off but immediately crashes. The 20090319 build works fine with the same setup.

PPC OK but MBP still a problem

Hi Ronald, I tried the 10/25 build on both my PM G5 running Tiger and my MBP running Leopard. The PM G5 now runs fine with the 10/25 build, but the MBP still quits after the splash screen. I ran the 20090319 build afterward to make sure my OS 9 disk image wasn't damaged and it boots up fine. So ther...

MBP problem

I'm running Mac OS 10.5.8 on an MBP 2008. As I reported before, the new 18102009 build crashes when I substitute it for the 21-7-08 build which works fine. The smiley face then the splash screen come up, but it crashes before the extensions load. I also tried the 20090714 build and it crashes in the...

new build crashes on intel

First, thanks for your work. I've had success running PageMaker using Sheepshaver on both PPC and Intel Macs. Unfortunately, this new build crashes on both a PM G5 and MBP. In both cases, I have a working previous version of SheepShaver and replaced the app with the new build. Separate issue: For so...
