Mac version runs fine in Basilisk / Mac OS 7.5, but my SheepShaver environment refuses this to play (Mac OS 9), getting graphical glitches, even not playing the movies included in the game.

Someone should check this with Mac OS 8 on SheepShaver, too, please.

For the Windows partition of this CD-ROM, I found this on eBay Review & Guides:
"The game's setup file would reliably crash out with this message: "Critical Path setup 2.00: Overflow" and you'd be rocketed back to the desktop.
5. find the setup.exe file.
6. right click on that and go PROPERTIES
7. in the resulting window, click the tab that says "Compatibility".
8. click on the first text box and go WINDOWS 95 compatibility
9. below, check 256 COLORS and RUN IN 640x480 pixels.

If all goes well with the video and sound, then you're on easy street.
click on the resulting CRITPATH.EXE file to start the game.
Got an error message?
No matter. change the exe's compatibility to exactly that of SETUP.exe
(win 95, 256 colors, 640x480)"
