Sheepshaver not opening on macOS 11.6?

I just downloaded the latest build for silicon Macs, and it opens and then immediately closes after. How to fix this?

Did you replace a previous SheepShaver build in an existing SheepShaver setup?
Or are you starting a new SheepShaver setup?

To make SheepShaver run, it needs to be in the SheepShaver folder with at least a compatible rom file that is renamed "Mac OS ROM".

Follow the setup guide, it describes all steps in detail: https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/sh ... os_x_setup

Hi

I have the same issue with arm64 native, with rosetta checked everything works fine !

Existing setup with FrameMaker and 2gb disk.

The logfile reason is "com.apple.xpc.launch : Coalition cache hit:app< application.com.emaculation.sheepshaver sheepshaver>

No crashfile

No worries because I'm using my intel mac ... was just testing:)

Thanks, Alexis

Strange. My latest 'universal' build works fine here natively on a M1 iMac.

Edit: Running macOS 11.6.
