DTSA on Windows

3. Installation of SheepShaver
I am sure there are several ways to install SheepShaver. However, I have used the following way (at least woking to me).
  1. Create a folder for SheepShaver, e.g. C:\SheepShaver. I have created this folder in the root of the C drive. But you can have such folders anywhere you want.

  2. Unzip the downloaded SheepShaver zip file (SheepShaver_05_05_2010.zip). After unzipping, a folder called "SheepShaver" can be found in unzipeed "SheepShaver_05_05_2010" folder. Then, copy all the files in the unziped SheepShaver folder into the folder created above.

  3. Copy a C:\Sheepshaver\CD-ROM drivers\cdenable.sys file into C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers. You need a CD drive for MacOS installation!
    Note: For 64-bit Windows systems, this cdenable.sys file should be copied into C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\drivers.

  4. Unzip SDL-1.2.14-win32.zip and copy a sdl.dll file into the SheepShaver folder.

  5. Install GTK+ runtime by double clicking the gtk2-runtime-2.22.0-2010-10-21-ash.exe file.

    Check the PATH set up.

    And, finally select a folder to install Gtk+. The default folder is just fine.

  6. Run SheepShaverGUI.exe in the SheepShaver folder by double clicking the icon.
    If you see the following error message, the folder where Gtk+ was installed is not added into environmental variable. Simply, reinstall gtk+ with checking the environmental variable option.
