      Is it possible that the version of sheepshaver you have is Intel only?
      You can tell by doing "get info" on the sheepshaver application file.
      It probably says "Intel". The latest released "Universal" binary is

      It should be safe to substitute this one for whatever you are trying to run.

Ultimately will try to install Sheep Saver, so I can run legacy OS 9 apps, but I really need WP Mac. Excited to see WPMacApp (many thanks to creator) and downloaded it. The online documentation indicated that this is what I should use if I'm running OS 10.5.8 on a PPC machine. But when I try to open it, I get "You can't open the application "WPMacApp.app" because it is not supported on this architecture. Makes me think it only runs on Intel-based Macs, but online documentation suggests otherwise. Any suggestions regarding how to make it run on my PowerBook G4? I have scoured all the online documentation I can find.
