Install set of Aladdin StuffIt Standard Edition, version 8.0.2 for PPC Mac OS X. This install consists of the freeware StuffIt Expander and shareware versions of DropStuff, DropZip and DropTar.

In the Preferences settings of each app, turn off version checking for new updates. This stops this software from attempting to connect to the internet each time it's launched.

For DropStuff backwards compatibility to StuffIt version 5.5 (very useful when stuffing classic Mac OS files to upload to here). In DropStuff's Preferences: Set Archive type to "StuffIt" and Compression level to "Faster Compression" and check "Ignore Finder desktop files". See screenshots 5 & 6, above.

See Also: The StuffIt Deluxe 8 page, for the full install set of Aladdin StuffIt Deluxe version 8.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Windows)

Very stable on PPC Mac OS X up to 10.5.8 and also runs well under Rosetta on Intel Macs that support it.
