Softkey/WordStar PC Paintbrush 1.x

Softkey/WordStar's PC Paintbrush is a paint program and photo editor for Windows 3.x. It only somewhat resembles Zsoft PC Paintbrush but is basically re-branded Zsoft PhotoFinish, released after Zsoft was bought out. It was initially sold by WordStar International, and then later SoftKey.

Note that WordStar International/Softkey reset their release version numbers at "1.0". The SoftKey version is still credited to WordStar International.

Installation instructions

This is a 16-bit Windows 3.0 application.

Note: It will crash on startup on some emulators due to the way it has its own virtual memory manager.
