[OFFER] Corel WordPerfect Suite 8 + Gamut

Post by AdamP »

I have this disc of WordPerfect Suite 8 and it includes Gamut. You appear to already have a few versions of WordPerfect 8, from what I can tell this isn't any of them. Most of them are OEM, and I can;t find any OEM markings on this, so I think it's retail. Also, the folders on the disc are dated June 1999, and wp8win.exe (I assume that's WordPerfect?) is version 8.0.0.611 and dated November 1998. Also, judging by the filenames, none of the versions you already have appear to have Gamut. Is this any good?

Good enough for FTP access?

Also, should I include a scan of the disc?

It should be fine for access but can't know until I've checked the disc.

And yes, scans of disc, ring and covers are always needed. Please review the guide for proper instructions.

Unfortunately, I don't have the ring or cover, only the disc :(.

The ring code is on the disc. Please read the guide, it will become clear :).

If you don't have the cover then it's fine.

Yeah, for some reason I thought you meant something like the jewel case :$.

Anyway, it's been uploaded. I hope it works okay, because I actually had trouble opening the archive; WinRar would simply freeze immediately, and 7z was usually the same, but works sometimes. I uploaded that version as it's the only one that thus far has actually opened. Even FileZilla froze when it tried to read the mdf file. I tried my best with the scans, so I hope they're okay.

Should I apply for FTP access now?

Just for clarification:

8.0.0.611 means this version has Service Pack 5 integrated. Latest is 8.0.0.710 - Service Pack 7.

I thought I saw Service Pack (I think it was 5) mentioned somewhere in it :).
