Sheepshaver, I had some problems that got resolved,
counterintuitively, by downloading an installing an *older* version
of SheepShaver. Ever since then, I've been using it without incident.
Being able to use WordPerfect 3.5ep for the Mac was well worth the set-up.
So, my suggestion is to download an older version of SheepShaver,
install it, install Mac OS 8.6 or 9.0.4, and the install WP 3.5ep.
Or try the very impressive WordPerfect Appliancethat Edward
Mendelsohn has conjured up...

Subject: [wpmac] Improved WPMac Appliance (alternate SheepShaver and
I've made some improvements in my WPMac Appliance system (WPMacApp).
This is an alternative to John's SheepShaver-WP system, and about 97%
of this alternative system is taken directly from John's system.
The main difference between this system and SheepShaver-WP is that
this is one is self-contained - the "classic" disk image is contained
inside the application. This new version also finally removes the
need for a visible folder in OS X for transmitting data between
SheepShaver and OS X. (It uses a hidden folder in the user folder
instead.) Also, it prints or creates PDF without any special setup,
but if offers to set up direct printing to any OS X printer if you
prefer faster printing or a specific printer. As before, it can
toggle between a quasi-full-screen mode and windowed mode. And, of
course, you can double-click on an WP file in OS X and have it open
in WPMac in SheepShaver.
The new version has a few other improvements, including Smokey's and
John's technique for clicking a hyperlink in WPMac and having it open
in Safari in OS X. That's part of the 97% that derives from John's
The same link still applies:
