Application quits immediately

Post by blindowl »

Hello, I'm trying to setup SheepShaver for the first time, but the application quits immediately after launch. Much like reported here: https://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewt ... 20&t=10548

I'm using the March 15 build, running macOS 10.15.3. Tried it on two machines.

Errors in Console:

AddInstanceForFactory: No factory registered for id <CFUUID 0x6000036efc40> F8BB1C28-BAE8-11D6-9C31-00039315CD46
...
RBSStateCapture remove item called for untracked item 408-215-1482 (target:executable<SheepShaver(311162129)>)
RBSStateCapture remove item called for untracked item 408-215-1483 (target:executable<SheepShaver(311162129)>)

I tried to move the app and copy it back as advised in the other forum thread, but that does unfortunately not help.

I also used Xcode to build the app myself, but it still quits when launched.

You do not tell what you did so far.
- Did you also download the SheepShaver folder?
- Did you move the SheepShaver application into the SheepShaver folder?
- Did you obtain a compatible ROM file, moved it into the SheepShaver folder and renamed in to "Mac OS ROM"?

Sorry for leaving out the details. I had all the files in the right place, but just to be sure I did go through all setup steps again. And just to be sure I replaced the ROM file with different one. And that did the trick! But thanks for the quick reply!
