You're missing the File System Manager extension required to use the My Computer feature. You can download and install it from the link above, along with other useful extensions.

It worked! :D

However it leaves .finf directories wherever I browse so created a virtual drive out of a folder in Windows by typing this in cmd:

Code:
subst x: c:\temp

So now when you browse drive X: it's only limited on the folder C:\TEMP.

The website says it'll work ystem 7.0 through 7.1.2. What about 7.1.2+, 8, and 9?

It is provided with later system versions, eventually as part the System itself.

BasiliskII is a 68k Mac emulator and as such will only run up to MacOS 8.1.

You mean it's part of the default installation of System? That's awesome!

Oh yeah! After 8.1 it'll be a problem I'll need to solve on SheepShaver. I haven't researched nor run SS yet.

At some point it is not a separate extension anymore. The functionality is then built-in in the "System" file itself.

It got rolled in to System 7.5.2 IIRC. For the various iterations of 7.5.0 and 7.5.1, it was included as an extension.

Note that the extension isn't designed to provide host file system access to the guest OS; that's just where BII and SheepShaver patch the OS to provide the service. Without the extension present, BII has nothing to patch, and so can't provide the file access.

This is getting too technical for me, for now. I'll return and advice this post in the future.

Thanks, everyone, for your time and responses!
