Does anyone have a copy of FTN95 that runs under DBOS? This would be from the late 1990s.

This request has been asked previously and I sent copies of my early version (I think Ver 1.06). Probably a very old email, that I can not now find.

I am not sure when I did this.
It was copied from 3 1/2" floppies, which I can no longer easily read.

If you are stuck, I could investigate what early version diskette copies I still have and see if they can be converted to .zip and put on dropbox.
They will be in a box somewhere !
My earliest installed version on disk is Ver 5.01 from Dec 2006, although this is not DBOS. I think it may still work.

Silverfrost's first release was 4.60 and we have all the versions from then onwards. 4.60 was Win32 (and .NET) only.

1.05 was the first commercial release and there were definitely DBOS versions of FTN95 in the 2.x version range.

I am sure someone said they had DBOS running fairly recently in a VM.

Probably not relevant, but I do have a FTN77/386 on a 5.25" floppy, complete with the two manuals from the time!

It might not be relevant to this but we would love a copy! Was there a FTN77/486 or is that my imagination?

You can have it. Yes, there was a 486. Just PM me the address please.
