    We have over 300 users of a special land surveying software LANDESIGN 1.17 made for Classic OS9 and we were able to run it successfully with the modified Sheepshaver 2.3 "Classic On Intel 4.01" installed on OSX 10.5.1 on an MB Pro Intel but after updating to OSX 10.5.4, this Classic application it is not working properly in COI 4.01 The OS9 loads ok but when I tried to open the Landesign application from within OS9, a dialog windows display "the application could noy be opened because the application that was used to create could not be found" It was running great before. Is there any other OS9 application that runs in OSX 10.5.4 on an Intel Mac? HELP PLEASE!

    Quite frankly, I'd look at another company to source software from - its abandonware, given the state of the software companies website.

    LANDESIGN land surveying features are not remotely available in MAC or Windows

    The problem is that these land surveying and COGO routines are not available neither on Windows or MAC applications so we need to solve this Classic on Intel emulator to run this software asap HELP !

    Since your Mac OS 9 install runs okay, I suspect the problem is within the install. Try telling SheepShaver to rebuild the Mac OS 9 Desktop file.

    I tried rebuilding the MAC OS9 desktop and reintsalling Landesign application in MAC OS9 but neither solved the problem of opening this program

    Have you tried double-clicking on the LANDesign application?

    I did

    I tried double clicking the Landesign application and reinstalling it but it always reports that it can not open it. The strange thing is that all other applications in OS9 open ok so it maybe that the OSX 10.54 removed an extension or something that doesnt allow Landesign to function?

    Classic on Intel

    A related problem with COI. I have OS 9,0.4 up and running through Sheepshaver. I am operating OS 10.5.4. I downloaded COI V4. I have transferred classic files to the disk volumes but I cannot start any applications in OS 9, Any suggestions
