Standalone failure for Mac PPC 9.2

OK initial problem solved: I had this in the open stack handler:

which, if commented out, lets the stand alone  boot just fine on OS 9...

--on openstack
--  put url "" 
into tCheckVersion
--  If item 1 of line 1 of tCheckVersion = "HA Stack Player" then 
--    show button "Stack Index"
--    if item 2 of tCheckVersion <> (the engineVersion of this stack) 
--      upgradeNotice
--    end if
--  end if
--end openStack

but, now I have new problems... app is crashing the mac... this user 
hasn't rebuilt their desktop or optimized their  hard drive in the 3 
years they had the machine ;-(
