  • SheepShaver running Mac OS 9.0.4 on Windows

What is SheepShaver for Windows - PPC emulator?

SheepShaver is a PowerPC (PPC) emulator which allows you to run Mac OS 7.5 up to Mac OS 9.0.4 on various platforms, such as on Windows.  SheepShaver started as a commercial project in 1998 but is now open source since 2002.  SheepShaver is not perfect (it cannot run MacOS 9.1 or 9.2), but enables users to run the vast majority of PPC software for Macintosh on their PC, which is all things considered, extraordinary, especially back in the year 1998.

This bundle was put together by "that-ben" and is intended to be the easiest possible for starters.  It already contains a compatible ROM file (Mac_OS_ROM.rom), a ready 250MB disk image on which Mac OS 9.0.4 is already fully installed (as well as an optional empty 30GB, yes 30 gigabytes, disk image to accomodate heavy disk space use).

Pre-installed software includes: QuickTime 4.1 for multimedia playback, Stuffit Deluxe 7.0.3 for extracting/compressing Stuffit archives and MacBinary files (such as .sit, .hqx or .bin), Toast 5 Titanium for mounting/creating CD images (such as .iso or .toast), Virex 6.1 which was the best antivirus for Mac around year 2000, SoundApp which is an extraordinary compatible music player (plays close to 100 different formats such as .mp3, .wav or .mod) and a bunch of useful utilities such as Super ResEdit 2.4, DiskCopy 6.4 and TaskMenuBar 2.4.2.
