Well, I never figured out the problem. However, I downloaded the beautiful new self-extracting SheepShaver and ran it. It opened perfectly! After affirming that it worked, I went into preferences and substituted my formerly working SheepShaver disk image, and it opened right up. All I can figure is that the SheepShaver application somehow got corrupted and needed to be replaced.
Anyway, I'm a happy camper thanks to all of those folks who developed the latest installation download. My thanks to all.

I did, however, update a bunch of software on Sunday, but I don't know how that would impact SheepShaver. I really need to access SheepShaver! Please help.
