Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

 PostPost subject: [Offer] Chicago Build 456 (dial-up warning)        Posted: Thu Jul 12, 2007 6:14 am 
Reply with quote
Any takers? I'd be happy to upload! It is the April Test Release from the Chicago beta. It requires a product to upgrade from and also I don't seem to have a valid key for it, even though it installed without one (the one in the last screenshot didn't work). I have an iso and a VPC 2007 HDD image available (HDD image was upgraded from Windows 3.1 for install). Lastly, if someone could instruct me on how to get rid of that pesky upgrade requirement, I would be happy to fix that.

Screenshots:

...now if someone could explain to me how VPC got into Spanish... :shock:

EDIT: Fixed images.

You should check in VPC's preferences, there may be an option to change the language.

Yeah, you can start up a partyline over a network and spread rumours! :D

Can't wait to play with this build :)

Yup...got it from eBay. Saw it and knew I had to snatch it. Honestly it brought back a lot of memories of my first computer and its simplicity. Days spent messing around with Windows 95, MS Works, Mindmaze on Encart '95, MS Explorapedia, and all of the Magic School Bus games, not to mention the Kids Only zone on AOL :D Ahh the days of AOL 2.5 and 3.0.

But yeah, the build looks feature complete, (in fact the CD has the MS product showcase and even the hover game that was included on the RTM CD) though I haven't tried installing any software besides the VPC Additions (2004 b/c they are supposed to work with 95) and that only returned an error.

AOL was a local service much like prodigy, before it became anything to do with the actual internet... like an interactive BBS. The chat was the big draw.

I still own 'Bud' on AOL, amazingly enough from way back then.
