Fix 'broken Classic apps after new Mac migration
Authored by: redclawx on Jul 21, '06 10:40:47AM

This would happen to any application that hard-codes data to pathnames. An example would be Netscape 4. If you change the pathname to its profile directory anywhere along the path, including the name of the hard drive itself, the next time Netscape is launched it will ask for the location of its profile to use. I don't know about other applications but Netscape was tested for this back when we still ran OS 8.6 and 9.
