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).

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?

Yes, it looks good. Never seen this kind of disc from Corel.

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?

If you intend using this release to apply for FTP access then yes.

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 :).
