Stuffit Expander incompatible?!
I have Expander 5.1.3, but every time I try to unstuff something, I get a -11 error. MacsBug reports it as "System error #119 - dsMustUseFCBAccessors".

There's a TechNote about FCB changes in OS 9, so it seems to me that Expander is incompatible. Anyone else have this problem? Or, better yet, know when a new version will be released?

That copy of MindExpander I've been keeping around is finally coming in handy!

I installed Internet Access along with MacOS 9. It put version 5.1.4 of Expander and 5.1.2 of DropStuff (and 5.1.3 of the extenstions). It seems to work fine. Try custom-installing Internet Utilities and then making sure you don't have duplicate copies.

The error message you received, and the fact that you still use version 5.1.3, indicates that you are not using the release copy of OS 9 from the CD.

The error message has been updated in the shipping release with a friendlier message indicating that "an update to this software is required for compatability with the improved Mac OS file system."

No need to jump to conclusions.
I actually DO have the release version, and I've figured out my problem: I didn't bother installing the copy from the CD because I figured it woudn't be necessary. I've installed it now and everything's fine.

I keep MindExpander around. For a long time, they've said that they work on all Mac OS's, including 9.
