I am trying to run a cd-rom on sheepshaver. When clicking the installation file on it I get this error: "application was unable to start due to an error. Please contact customer support"

I imagine this means I've run into a sheepshaver limitation or is there something I should know to run cd-roms?

thanks and best,

Please give more information about your setup: Which host system? Which SheepShaver build? What kind of CD-ROM with which software? Did the error have a number?

I've got a problem too with the Reading of a CD rom on sheepshaver. Not exactly the same as said in the first post but, when I put the CD on my computer (a MacbookPro version 10.12.6 (16G1314)) and launch Sheepshaver, it recognizes it as a hard disk I guess, in fact, it asks me to initialize it, as it did at the first start of sheepshaver. It doesn't just make it appear on the MacOS9 desktop.. I don't know how to do to open this game, I'm kinda desperate... can you help me please ?
Thanks

As is explained in the setup guide and in many topics in this forum: OSX 10.8 and later, so also macOS 10.12, prevents mounting of physical CD-ROMs in SheepShaver. You will need to make a disk image from the CD and use that. See the instructions in the setup guide.
(I am not sure if the volume that OS9 wants to initialize in your case is indeed the CD-ROM as SheepShaver should not be able to "see" that disk at all.)

It does that only when i previously inserted a CD-ROM on my computer so...
I didn’t find any answer in the forum which gave me a precise answer about my problem
How can I find the topic which talk about that ?
Thank you so much for your reply

Changing the configuration to ignore illegal instructions might be worth a try. See for instance:

Also make sure that "Ignore Illegal Memory Accesses" is enabled in Preferences > Miscellaneous, as instructed in the setup manual.
