Important! All programs written for Windows (except the File Archivist Converter) need the vbrun100.dll file. If you don't have this, get it here and extract it to your Windows system directory.

Since the software is outdated:16bit software also runs on 32bit Windows, 32bit software (convert32.exe only) also runs on 64bit Windows (including Windows 10). You might need to start this as administrator or enable compatibility mode. For running 16bit software on Windows 10 you need to download Winevdm, run otvdmw.exe and start theese programs from there.

The ZIP-files include the executable binary and a short description.
