sheepshaver - saved files from os9 to osx unreadable back

Thu Apr 09, 2020 10:48 pm

My problem is that using sheepshaver,

i saved some files from os 9 on osx.

These files are unreadable when back to os9.

In os9 the file kind is "document comptabilité"
when back from osx to os9 the file kind is changed to "document"

i would like to assign these documents to be open with the original software in os9.

- Do you use a regular SheepShaver setup or a preconfigured setup like COI Chubby Bunny?

- If you use a regular SheepShaver setup, which build (build date) do you use?

- Which OSX/macOS version runs on your host system?

Thanks for the answer Ronald.

I solved my problem using filetyper : http://www.mac.org/utilities/filetyper/

With this little software utility I can modify the type of my documents and now the software that created it in os9 is able to open it.

Thank you.
