Post subject:  Wrapper will not start after replacing SheepShaver.app

I had a working SheepShaver Wrapper with a couple of good old apps in the MacOS.sheepvpm. I got hold of a new 64bit-version of the SheepShaver.app and replaced the old one. If I try to start the Wrapper app now, I get this alert:

"sh: /Applications/SheepShaver Wrapper.app/Contents/Resources/Files/checkModifierKeys: Bad CPU type in executable
sh: /Applications/SheepShaver Wrapper.app/Contents/Resources/Files/checkModifierKeys: Bad CPU type in executable (126)"

Do I need to install from scratch? Is it possible to keep the vpm-file?

Martin

Update: I can start my virtual machine by opening the the vpm-file by double click. And: Precisely every other time the machine freezes while starting up.

So: It's working for me - just a bit strange...

Changing the SheepShaver.app without using the current version of the Wrapper probably won't work. The whole system has been revised for Catalina.

Start over with the current download of the SheepShaver wrapper, and simply copy the MacOS.sheepvm file from the old system to the new one. (I tried this just now, and it ran perfectly under Catalina.) You'll have to work your way deep into the folder contents until you find the MacOS.sheepvm folder that you need to replace.

Works for me, thanks very much! Still: Startup freezes occur. But as soon as startup has finished, everything works well.
