Usually when you see that message is because the metadata for the file isn't set correctly; this is typical if you're looking at MacOS Classic files that are not on a HFS filesystem. Brief Information on Classic MacOS Filesystems Unlike Windows or UNIX or most other operating systems that I've used over the years, MacOS tends to pack quite a bit of data ...

Many older Mac games were written to work best in 256-color (8-bit color) modes. Your system is probably set to use thousands or millions of colors (16- or 32-bit color); these modes do not improve the appearance of these games, and may make them slower or -- in Taskmaker's case -- may even prevent them from launching normally. Change the display depth of ...

The desktop was handled oddly in Classic Mac OS.

Classic Mac OSs can be a bit precious about where they install software, so maybe Kid Pix is trying to install on a small installation image. Can you enlarge ...

When it says, you've not enough memory, it is referring to RAM. For all of my virtual machines, I set the RAM to half of what is actually on my computer. I have a computer with 4GB of RAM. Even when I'm emulating Windows 3.1 and Tiny Core Linux, I use 2GB RAM for good measure. I suggest that if you use a computer for such, it should have at least 1GB of RAM.

Are you using Basilisk II? If so, it should be included in SheepShaver. Download cdenable.sys from one of the SheepShaver links here. Then copy the file from the CD-ROM Drivers directory to ..WINDOWS\system32\drivers. Source Actually, from that article it looks like this driver is only supported on 32-bit versions of Windows. On 64-bit versions of ...
