PageMaker 1.00

Aldus PageMaker, later Adobe PageMaker, is a desktop publishing program for Mac and Windows. First released in 1985, PageMaker was the first desktop publishing program for the Macintosh. It was followed over a year later with the release of 1.0 for the IBM PC. The PC version was a notable application as it was one of the few rare applications which would run under Windows 1.x. PC PageMaker 1.0 bundled a runtime version of Windows. This enabled MS-DOS users who had not decided to buy Windows to run PageMaker. Aldus skipped version 2.0 on the PC to bring version number in sync with the 3.0 Mac product.

After 7 versions and a sell-out to Adobe, PageMaker met its end at version 7.0 which would not have native support for Mac OS X and does not run properly on Windows Vista or beyond. It was replaced by a new product, Adobe InDesign.

Version 1.00 for Windows is designed to run under Microsoft Windows 1.03.

Wanted: redump of 1.00 with full disk images.

Installation instructions
