I recently upgraded to Big Sur (OS 11.1) and when I try to open SheepShaver, all I get is a spinning circle (of death). No matter how long I give my laptop, it just won't open.

I read somewhere I needed a rule but from what I read, it seems that rule is to be put in SheepShaver but if it won't open, I'm kinda stuck.

I am not literate in Mac OS and really a user and not a techie.

I'd appreciate a step by step approach telling me how to make the app work on Big Sur. I miss playing Strategic Conquest.

From which macOS version did you upgrade to Big Sur 11.1? Did SheepShaver run fine before the upgrade? Which SheepShaver build do you run (mention build date!). And is this on an Intel Mac or on a new M1 Mac?
