WordPerfect 5.x (Win)

During the late 1980's, WordPerfect was THE standard word processor for DOS based PCs in big business. Under DOS, it competed mostly against Wordstar. WordPerfect for Windows enjoyed some success in the early Windows environments, but was quickly displaced by Microsoft Word for Windows. Later Windows versions were part of Borland Office/Novell PerfectOffice/Corel Office/Corel WordPerfect Office.

Release notes

5.1 was the first release for Windows 3.x.

The 5.x for Windows series were extremely buggy, especially 5.1. This badly hurt WordPerfect's reputation, and drove more Windows users to Microsoft Word.

Note: There were a number of smaller point releases/updates for each version, identified by the release date. Please let us know if you have any additional 5.x versions!
