DropStuff registration number

Sun Jul 28, 2019 11:56 pm

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 the nag every time I stuff a file, it seems like it wants to only let me use it for 15 days.
I can't find anything in my notes from prior installs about a registration number for DropStuff.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Did you try MTT´s workaround installing from the MacOS 9.1 disk image already?

If that fails, I´ll look for serial to send via PM.

Is this the problem you're describing in this old thread?

Since the file sizes are identical, it seems to me that the resource fork information isn't being lost – aside from the Type/Creator data. If that's the case, then instead of using DropStuff, you can just use ResEdit or even Type Resolve (from https://emaculation.com/doku.php/68k_software ) to restore the Type and Creator data (it's literally just eight text characters in total) when you copy the file into Sheepshaver.

Alternatively, you can use MacBinary II instead of DropStuff, or even Compact Pro. I think they're both genuinely free at this point.
