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 doubt that it is warez, as there is a link to it on this topic

I'm not sure if the one in the topic is the Retail version, but there is a Upgrade download in that topic.

I think I have a copy of that. I would be happy to upload it to the server, so long as it won't cause any trouble. I doubt it, as there is a Traditional Chinese version of ME up their, but if someone will verify that ME is not warez, I'll upload it. **I think its retail, but it might be OEM.

I also have a 98SE, I'd be happy to share as long as they're not warez, or going to cause any legal issues. (Here in the US, the music people like to sue people over downloads and uploads...don't feel like having any trouble about software, although I strongly doubt anyone cares about Windows ME - it's kinda beta anyway.)

I don't think Windows ME is warez. Windows ME is no longer sold and no longer supported so it qualifies as abandonware.

As of the current (and likely to be changed) abandonware rule we have to wait until the 14th of September 2010.

If it doesn't accept those key's, then try some of the:

Retail
Upgrade
Step-up.

All of those are different key's and don't work on any other version then the retail/upgrade/step-up.

There are plenty available.
Look for Xiso All Windows DVD, the keys provided there should work.
