This happens occasionaly. Open the files using the program that created
them, make and save some small change, and close. Then rebuild
SheepShaver's desktop, using the Desktop Reset utility in the Utilities
For WP files, if they lose their icon when copied into SheepShaver, just
drop them on the "Set Files to WP" droplet on the SS desktop.
If you want to make a copy of that droplet to regularly set other files,
open a copy of the droplet in Script Editor, in the SS Utilities folder.
Find the lines:
set creator type of i to "WPC2"
set file type of i to "WPD4"
Change the four-letter codes in quotes to the creator and file types of the
program. You can get creator and file type codes for a program using
any of several free file utilities such as File Buddy.
