Problems with .SIT files

I recently pieced together a Color Classic with an LC575 motherboard and 68040 CPU with math coprocessor. Everything is working great, although I am having a very difficult time with expanding/unsitting .SIT archive files. I have downloaded a few apps in .SIT format and have tried unsitting them on the Color Classic with UNSTUFFIT versions 1.5 thru 3.5 to no avail. Even though the files I am trying to unsit are named .SIT, the UNSTUFFIT programs will not even show them in their file menus! What gives?! Help!!!!!!!!

I know that I could unsit them on my main G3 mac and then run them on my CC, but I’m working with the limited space of floppy drives.

I think you may need a later

I think you may need a later version of Stuffit Expander. I've a similiar CC running OS 7.5.5 and Stuffit Expander 5.5 seems to do the trick.

That's my guess, too. Aladdin

That's my guess, too. Aladdin changed their compression format with Stuffit Expander 5, and it's not backward compatible.
A 68K version is available at Jag's House .
