Hi,

After successfully setting up a system 7.6.1 on OS X, I am currently trying to install SheepShaver on Windows 10 (this is a different machine, and this time I intend to install Mac OS 9.0.4). However, I am stuck at the step of creating a hard disk image. I open SheepShaver Settings (SheepShaverGUI.exe), click "Create…" in the Volumes tab and fill in the size, path and name (tried with and without the .hfv extension), and when I click OK, the "Create Hardfile" dialog just closes and no file is created. Any idea ?

Hi,

I just tested the create hard file dialogue in Windows 10. A file was created just fine. The dialogue does indeed simply quit when the file is created.
Did you check that your have the correct location set?
Which version of SheepShaver are you using?

Best,
Cat_7

Thank you for your answer ! It still doesn’t work for me. I downloaded the package dated 05-05-2010 that’s in the section "To get started, always download this". I put everything in a folder in C:\Users\[myusername]\Downloads. SheepShaver recognises the ROM file, but the Settings still won’t create a disk. I also tried replacing the SheepShaver executable in that package by the latest version (01-03-2015), but I don’t think that it would matter at this point ?

Hi again, Onox!
This is not a solution, but you might use a disk image already created for SheepShaver on your Windows rig.
The one from your dads Mac will do, just as those collected here:

Not sure whats going wrong on your side in Windows either.
Just created a 240 MB volume as TestDrive.dsk, it was created in an instant and visible in the volumes tab.
OS is: Windows 10 Pro, version 1803, build 17134.407
