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).

These appear to be legit, though I wasn't able to quickly install the Windows 98 and Windows 2000 builds for screenshots, so please let me know if there's any issues (other than with 2170A obviously).

Windows for Workgroups 3.11 build 100 German
Image

This is RC1 of WfW 3.11, the German release is dated 28th September 1993, some days later than the English release (of which we're missing disk 1).

Windows 98 build 1691 German

Windows 98 Second Edition build 2170A
Unfortunately, this one is missing two CABs because two warez release parts were corrupted.
Fixed and complete now.

Windows 2000 build 1773 Server

WIN98_44 and 77. There's an attempt going on right now to see if it can be installed by adding missing files from 2183.

A "Typical" install with the recommended components boots with the following files added from 2183:

It's not all fun and roses though:

I'll do a full install and see all the files that are missing in 2170 later.

Build 2170 was mentioned in an April 1999 warez CD (I think it was called SOS 4-99 IIRC), thankfully it is now released.

Just a bit of an update on 2170A: the two broken CABs have been recovered, so I'll be uploading a fixed ISO soon.

EDIT: Done, the link in the OP has been updated accordingly.
