We are happy to be able to provide you with free access to one of the largest collections of abandonware and pre-release software online. For redundancy and speed, we provide access to both our entire collection on the primary library mirrors as well as smaller, more specific mirrors.
All software in our collection is archived in the 7-Zip format using 7-Zip 9 for optimal compression. 7-Zip is a free, open-source archival utility, and we recommend using it for extracting any files downloaded from our software library. The files enclosed will be of varying formats which you can read more about on our Archive Information page.
If you have a software package or version not found in our download library we will likely want your contribution! We welcome contributions from any subscribed member of WinBoards and accept them in common file formats per our requirements.
