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.

Getting DropStuff version 8 to create archives compatible with StuffIt Expander version 5.5
( a useful tip for stuffing classic Mac OS files before uploading them here ).
  • In DropStuff's Preferences; Set:
    1. Archive type to "StuffIt" (not StuffIt X)
    2. Compression level to "Faster Compression"
    3. Check "Ignore Finder desktop files" (omits OS X hidden files .DS_Store, etc).
  • See screenshots 6 & 7, above.
