Hello,

I'm looking for a solution to emulate Mac OS 9.2.2., where my bookkeeping is running.
I'm reading following about Sheepshaver : "Using SheepShaver it is possible to emulate a Macintosh computer capable of running Mac OS 7.5.2 through 9.0.4. ".

Does this means I can't use Sheepshaver? Has anyone experience doing the same as I want to do?

Thanks,

Stien

If your bookkeeping software runs on 9.0.4, then you can use SheepShaver. If it requires 9.2, then you can't use SheepShaver. There is no alternative.

Just out of curiosity: what is the exact reason SheepShaver wont run a Mac OS version later than 9.0.4?

SheepShaver does not emulate the hardware that 9.1 and later needs, specifically a MMU (memory management unit).
