Gee. Does Stuffit Expander not handle DiskDoubler? That's an unfortunate limitation.

The Unarchiver trick ought to work in that case as well, anyway.

Re: Help opening files in Basilisk

I wonder if it's possible that the files are encoded with MacBinary III, and that Expander doesn't recognize them? The quick and easy thing to do would be to try probing them with The Unarchiver.

I might be able to take a look at these later.

Re: Help opening files in Basilisk

The utility in that other thread is used for .zip files created in OSX. These are easily identified by the presence of a folder named "__MACOSX" in the .zip file. It would seem what we are dealing with here is something completely different – zip archives of MacBinary-encoded files. I susp...

Re: Requests for SheepShaver's 20th Anniversary

Are you sure the old files were copied and archived correctly? If they were copied to a Windows drive, they may have lost their resource forks, or at least their Type/Creator information.

Re: Is there any equivalent to ReactOS or Wine for macOS?

like what Wine does in Linux or what ReactOS attempts to do, a clone of Mac OS (Classic) but for common Intel PCs. At the risk of stating the obvious, Wine in Linux and ReactOS both generally run x86 code on an x86 computer. As the Classic Mac OS ran on either a PowerPC or 68k, emulation of the CPU...

Re: Cannot run application in SheepShaver, on Windows 10

If the zip archive is in OSX zip format, it will preserve resource forks. However, the resource forks will only be preserved when the archive is again unzipped with an appropriate application within OSX. As far as I know, no classic MacOS application exists that can do that. It so happens there's o...
