What is "MacOS9.exe" or "Mac OS 9 for Windows" (SheepShaver for dummies)?

This is a zero configuration SheepShaver 2.5 package for dummies.  All the user has to do is launch the installer and a "MacOS9" icon will appear in their start menu.  There is no ROM to configure and no path to set.  It comes with a 4GB virtual hard drive half full with a ton of software, a virtual PDF printer, a Windows printer port and a script that allows the user to send files back and forth between Windows and Mac OS 9.

All of these features can be done with a vanilla SheepShaver base, but this saves headaches to beginners.

Requires 4.08GB of space to install.
