Can't get sheepshaver to open on Mac os Sierra 10.12.6

Post by RR1985 »

Hi there,

I can't get it to work.
I currently have:

- renamed the rom t 'Mac OS ROM'
- copied the app to desktop, remove the 'old' app from the folder and them move it back from the desktop to the folder


nothing works. I've tried everything ! It just closes immediately.
Any help would be appreciated. thanks !

Which ROM file do you use?

Have you checked in Finder Info panel that the file's name is indeed "Mac OS ROM" and not "Mac OS ROM.rom"?
copied the app to desktop, remove the 'old' app from the folder and them move it back from the desktop to the folder
That folder is the separately downloaded SheepShaver folder?
