Re: Office 98 and 2001 Trouble

Guess we had several threads about MS Office above 4.3 not working with SheepShaver over the years. For both MS Office ´98 and 2001, QemuPPC, MacOS 9.2 is the way to go. If you want sound, you need to run a Screamer build. Cat_7 has some builds ready to try. In this thread is a link to a bootable US...

It looks like it does its thing in SheeShaver 8.6.
Not sure how to verify finally. ;)

Re: OS 9.2.2 BackUp ToolKit 3 AutoStart

Strange, FWB-BackUp-ToolKit-3-0.2 is working on my side in Qemu and SheepShaver.
Only that I can´t see a benefit backing up files within an emulator when the whole disk image may be backed up on the host OS in an instant. :)

I doubt that MS Office 2001 will work anyway, as even 98 does not.
As far as I can tell, QemuPPC, MacOS 9 would be best to run MS Office higher than 4.3.

Re: Max disk size usable in BII

I was playing around with large HFS disk images a while ago. If memory serves, there were no issues reading or writing to a 30GB volume with Basilisk II. (Not saying it was wise using such a big volume with HFS.) I did not try file sharing though. The volume in question is hosted at Macintoshgarden:...

Re: Starfleet Academy - "Unknown Error 21"

As the mouse is practically unusable for the game in SheepShaver, I would use Qemu (Screamer Build) instead. The mouse looks good in Qemu to me, video is looking better eith...

Re: Software and files not recognised

I´m under the impression that ProTools, like other "music" software, needed dedicated hardware to run. The required sound hardware often were add in cards of Nubus type. SheepShaver is emulating an early PCI Mac with a PPC 604 cpu. Apple dropped Nubus in favour of PCI after the PowerMac 81...

Re: no sound from cd player

I seem to recall that Apple CD Player was very picky with hardware.
Apple branded Sony CD hardware did play fine, third party CD players would not. That was with real Macs, mind you.
With Mac emulators it will be even less probable to play CD audio tracks that way.

Re: Unix folder has disappeared...

As you copied over all your software, the path to the Unix folder most certainly changed.
Did you already adopt that setting to the new location?

If you still want to use Snow Leopard, a virtual machine is nice to have.
I´m using Leopard Server 10.5 occasionally in VMWare.
