The "system" from the name was dropped in favor of "Mac OS" in part to prevent clone makers from keeping their licenses. This followed System 7.5 and is followed by Mac OS 8.0.

Troubleshooting

StuffIt Expander 5.5 unexpectedly quit - error type 3

For some reason MacOS 7.6.1 and StuffIt Expander 5.5 sometimes don't work properly together. The expander may work with other archives except actual StuffIt archives. A workaround is to install the full StuffIt Deluxe 5.5 version which seems to expand the archives properly.
