Microsoft Multiplan was an early 8-bit spreadsheet application for CP/M and MS-DOS with ports to numerous other platforms in the early 80s.

    I have Microsoft Multiplan 4.20 in my collection this version in French and have Copy Protection.

  • Any chance you could dump it with a kryoflux or SuperCard Pro? Or at least try running it through imagedisk/teledisk/anadisk/copyIIpc+snatchit so we could get some idea of what kind of protection it is using?

  • I do not how dump with kryoflux or SuperCard Pro. You can teach how to dump it.

  • Kryoflux and SCP are hardware devices, so if you don't have one of those you won't be able to use that method. There is a group of people working on a similar project called greaseweazle that has some similar functionality for a less money, and more open standards. I think those guys are more focused on Amiga software floppies, but the ideas are all the same.
