Hello, I'm trying to setup SheepShaver for the first time, but the application quits immediately after launch. Much like reported here: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=10548

I'm using the March 15 build, running macOS 10.15.3. Tried it on two machines.

Errors in Console:

AddInstanceForFactory: No factory registered for id <CFUUID 0x6000036efc40> F8BB1C28-BAE8-11D6-9C31-00039315CD46
...
RBSStateCapture remove item called for untracked item 408-215-1482 (target:executable<SheepShaver(311162129)>)
RBSStateCapture remove item called for untracked item 408-215-1483 (target:executable<SheepShaver(311162129)>)

I tried to move the app and copy it back as advised in the other forum thread, but that does unfortunately not help.

I also used Xcode to build the app myself, but it still quits when launched.

You do not tell what you did so far.
- Did you also download the SheepShaver folder?
- Did you move the SheepShaver application into the SheepShaver folder?
- Did you obtain a compatible ROM file, moved it into the SheepShaver folder and renamed in to "Mac OS ROM"?

Sorry for leaving out the details. I had all the files in the right place, but just to be sure I did go through all setup steps again. And just to be sure I replaced the ROM file with different one. And that did the trick! But thanks for the quick reply!

I too am trying to install SheepShaver under Mojave 10.14.6 with the same immediate crash. I have all the files in the SheepShaver folder. I have tried 3 different versions of the ROM file. The ROM files are not recognized by the SheepShaverwrapper app either.

I have the COIv4 (Classic on Intel) version running fine but need the 64 bit version in order to move to Catalina. How can I get a working ROM file?

I have owned and used Macs since 1991.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Bernie

It is not possible to simply do a new installation on a machine (and user account) that ran COI before.

There are two possibilities, which one would you prefer:
Completely start from scratch or use your COI setup to make it into a regular setup?

Thank you for the quick response.

I am open to either solution.
Is one much simpler than the other?
I have a disk image with OS 9 apps installed and working with the current COI version.
If both updates are similar in complexity I would like to update the current COI version but am happy to take your advice.

Thanks again.
Bernie

I think it is best to use the existing COI setup to create a regular setup. That way everything you used and did in the emulator will be preserved.

I need to know if you use disk images besides the OS9 disk. COI gives the possibility to add volumes by adding specially named .dmg disk images to the /Users/Shared/ folder. Do you use any such additional disk image files?
(The names can be 400Meg.dmg, 800Meg.dmg, 1200Meg.dmg, MyOldHD.dmg, and/or COIHD.dmg)

Yes, I use 1 800Meg.dmg in the /Users/Shared folder.

OK. I will write the instructions. It may take a while.
