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 uploaded a full box retail ENG VS6.0 PRO Disk Kit (2001-10-01) to the public FTP already. My question, is it legal to do so? Is it abandonware yet? I hope so, it is old enough.

The kit contains:
Covers and brochure scans.
MS VS6.0 Professional Installer Disc1-2
MS VS6.0 J++
MS VS6.0 SP5
Developer's Readiness Kit
MSDE for VS6.0 (SQL7.0 server development kit)
MSDE Developer Training
MSDN Developer Library Disc1-2
aaand Windows NT4.0 SP4 too

It's reaaaaalllllyyy old, so yes, take in mind that it has been released in 1998, so of course, it's nabandonware (M$ stopped supporting it 12 years ago, in 2005)

I found it now, did not look under Compilations, only Development Kits.
Still I think my upload is worthy and should be kept together, since it is a retail box dumped with box scan and discs scan.

If it's uploaded as a complete kit it will be kept as such too.

Good to hear that. I will have more contributions later when I have time, I have some Hungarian abandonware Windows OS-es missing from the library.
Also the University sysadmin can lend me old Ubuntus and other various stuff. This VS6.0 is from the University too.
