FreeHand 5.0

FreeHand is a vector based drawing program used to create illustrations. It is similar to CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator. Initially it offered more features and flexibility than illustrator. It was created by Altsys, sold through Aldus, then sold to Macromedia, and then finally was assimilated by Adobe. Later versions repositioned itself as a content creation system for the web through Flash. The final version was Freehand MX (version 11) in 2003.

Release notes

This version was released by Macromedia, after Aldus was bought out.

Installation instructions

This version is a 32-bit Win32s application that can run under Windows 3.1 with Win32s, 95, or NT.

Note: The setup program crashes under some emulators. This appears to be related to the detection of Win32s.
