      Greetings all,

      I have been using the SheepShaver which is installed by the SheepShaver-WordPerfect 1.2.3.dmg file, which I believe I obtained in this group's files many years ago.

      It serves my purposes quite well, but recently I have begun to hanker after a wonderful CAD program, DesignWorkshop, which I used to run on my venerable PowerBook G3 Wallstreet.  (DesignWorkshop is not available for OS X)

      So, this morning I decided to see what I could do to get my 8.0 (I think) system disk to install into my SheepShaver.  Goodbye to 3 hours of my life, unfortunately for no improvement in my situation :-(

      I have now officially given up on the idea of ever getting anything but the 7.5 that is in my current SheepShaver to run inside it.

      But it occurs to me that perhaps someone out there has a SheepShaver with 8.x in it, and is willing to share it with me for some compensation for their time in getting it to run?  I would be so grateful to be able to run DesignWorkshop again!

      Can you copy the program to the SheepShaver disk you already have? You may find that it runs correctly.

          I've tried running the installer from the CD, within SheepShaver; I got told This program cannot run on this computer.

          I took that as meaning I had the wrong ROM, so I found a new world ROM (the CD came with a PowerBook G3 Wallstreet) and got another error on startup (can't remember whether SheepShaver itself simply crashed almost immediately, or the OS inside it crashed a couple of seconds later).

          Anyone who has a SheepShaver with OS 8.x inside it, please reply here and we'll sort out contact details.

In the SheepShaver forum, in a section named something like "Other SheepShaver configurations," you'll find a link to something I wrote called the "SheepShaver Wrapper." That should work, or you could communicate via that forum.

              Hi. I don’t check in here very often, but noticed your post.

              I’m using OS 9.0.4 very happily on SheepShaver. Unless there’s a reason I don’t know, you should be able to move beyond OS 7.5.

                It's a very nice-looking program!

                  Thanks, I'll do that.  I was there the other day during my 3 wasted hours of fiddling with SheepShaver.  I figured I'd post here because there seem to be people here who really know it well and can produce ready-to-run versions of the thing, but I'm sure there are equally capable people over there too.  Thanks for your help.

                    I'm running a variety of programs under SheepShaver v2.4 (2014-07-15) and OS 9.0.4.

                    I installed SheepShaver, and then OS 9 from an installation disc that I had in my software archive. Perhaps it would help if you told us a little more about your installation procedure. If you tried to run the OS 8 installer program *not* in SheepShaver, but rather in OS 10, I am not surprised that you would get a, "This program cannot run on your computer" error message on you computer.
