Fix 'broken Classic apps after new Mac migration
Authored by: Unsoluble on Jul 21, '06 08:25:26AM
That's odd, actually, since Mac OS 9 itself never cared about what the System Folder was called. You could change the folder's name to anything you wanted; things knew where to look because they pointed themselves at System Folderness, not at a specific path. Why wouldn't that still work?

I can't explain that. I'd never tried to rename my System Folder in OS9 (or in Classic, for that matter)...but the fix I described worked for at least two apps running in Classic (Quark 4 and PowerPoint 2001).
