Type & Creator ID for SoftPC Disk & Installation Data Files?

Somehow my SoftPC install dir lost the attribute info and now the prog won't "find" its disk and data files no more (but they are still there).
Does anyone know the Type & Creator ID info for SoftPC 3.1 - or even better, where is a list with all those IDs available?

There was this gigantic Excel spreadsheet of Mac OS types/creators floating around the internet some years ago. If my memory serves me correctly, it was too big to be opened on Classic Mac OS. Unlike me to not preserve a copy, but seems this is one of those rare instances Sad Did a quick search just now, but wasn't among the top hits...

A penny for my aging memory!

Sorry, but I am writing on a new book and I downloaded tons of stuff, that haven't gotten around to install yet.

But every download is a new download Wink

Often, the Creator code for data files are the same as the code its app file has. Then, by exploring the app file using ResEdit, you might find many possible Type codes the app makes use of.

Tho you are trying to run an installer, not the app itself, this probably won't help.

And it also doesn't help, if you're too lazy (like I am). Wink
