It depends on what version of RISC OS you are running. If it is RISC OS 3
or later, then Shift-double-click on !SparkPlug, then Shift-double-click
on !Run in the window that opens. This will load the !Run file into a
text editor (probably Edit).
Look for the line that reads
if "<System$Path>" = "" then Error 0 System resources cannot be found
and comment it out by placing a vertical bar -- that's | -- in front of
it. If your copy is like mine, there are several comments already in the
file. Now save the modified file.
Re-run SparkPlug and it should work. The reason this works is that
SparkPlug only needs System for the SharedCLibrary; this is in ROM on RISC
OS 3 and later so the check is redundant.
If you have RISC OS 2, you'll need to get a copy of System (the system
resources). If you have one on disc, open the directory containing it
before running SparkPlug.
