I brought up SheepShaver 2.5 and MacOS 9.0. Many apps work but Microsoft Office 98 does not. I ran Microsoft Office First Run successfully. Now PowerPoint does apparently nothing, and Word and Excel give these errors:

The application "W 98" could not be opened because "MathLib" could not be found.
The application "X 98" could not be opened because "StdClib" could not be found.

Any clue greatly appreciated.

MathLib and StdClib libraries need to be added to the system folder. I thought Office 98 did this by default, but I haven't tried it in SheepShaver lately. If still having problems, try running Internet Explorer first (it'll probably crash) because it auto-installs the same libraries IIRC.

Thanks, that was a good idea. Got one step farther. IE (version 5) actually started up, after installing a bunch of stuff; wouldn't open any websites, but hey. After that Word no longer says MathLib is missing, so I guess it got installed. (Don't know where it lives, as I don't see it anywhere within System Folder.) Now both Word and Excel complain about missing StdClib.

Any idea where I might find a loose copy of that library?

Sadly no; if IE's not installing it, the only other place I know of that installs it is the Office 98 install CD.

I think they go inside a folder in the System folder.

Office 98 (and 2001) might not run at all in SheepShaver. From looong time ago I seem to remember that installing the Japanese language pack allowed office 98 to somewhat run ;-)

You have a way better chance with Qemu running 9.0 or 9.2

Best,

Same here, Office `98 always was a no go for me with OSX hosts.
It partially did work on Windows XP and Mandriva hosts if my memory is correct.
