[Offer/Announcement] Microsoft Software Collections - Version 4 FINAL

edited April 14 in Offers & Requests

Due to WinWorld's rules links will not be provided here but you can find these collections at a certain torrents site.

This is it, the very last version of my classic Microsoft software collections! These are collections of Windows (from Windows 3.0 to Windows Vista) plus classic contemporary Microsoft applications and games. This new version adds a few software titles that you can't find anywhere else on the internet. Here you will find mostly everything you need in one place. No disc swapping is required when installing software. Serial numbers/product keys are integrated (except some games and third party software) so you won't have to insert them manually. I've spent many many hours creating and testing these collections throughout these years, I hope you enjoy them!

Comments

  • Titles that were considered for inclusion but were left out of these collections:

    Microsoft Multimedia Beethoven, Microsoft Multimedia Mozart, Microsoft Multimedia Schubert, Microsoft Multimedia Strauss and Microsoft Multimedia Stravinsky:
    Not included due to containing audio CD tracks.

    Ghostwriter Mysteries for Creative Writer:
    Not included due to being unable to find a copy anywhere. The copies that have surfaced are only for Macintosh so it was probably never released for Windows. It just seems to be a bunch of pre-made Creative Writer documents anyway.

    Post Windows 3.x The Magic School Bus titles:
    Not included due to space constraints, also a couple of titles contain audio CD tracks.

    My Personal Tutor titles::
    Not included due to space constraints.

    Barney titles:
    Not included due to space constraints, also some titles seem to require ActiMates Barney in order to work.

    Links Extreme, Links LS 2000:
    Not included due to no proper no-cd crack being available anywhere.

    Frequently asked questions:

    Will there be a version 5 of these collections?
    No. These are the final versions, burn the images to DVD-R's without regret.

    Where is the Microsoft Games for Windows Vista Collection?
    I have started a Microsoft games for Windows Vista collection but chose not to finish it because I feel that the games are still too recent, if that makes any sense. It would have been a pretty small collection anyway.

    Will there be a Microsoft Windows 7 Collection?
    Very unlikely. Although I do have a soft spot for Windows 7, in my opinion the Windows Vista era marked the end of classic Microsoft software. Titles like Microsoft Encarta and Microsoft Works were discontinued after that and everything became more web based. Anyway, even if I do create a Windows 7 collection it won't be released before Windows 7's end of extended support in January 2020.

    Will there be a Windows NT collection?
    No, these Microsoft software collections are centered on the home user experience. I have no interest in creating a Windows NT collection.

    Wouldn't it make sense to put things litsed under "titles that were considered for inclusion but were left out of these collections" on WinWordPC ?

    Or are they banned here?

  • Well, I don't have all of those titles that I've mentioned. Most of them can easily be found elsewhere on the internet anyway, and the ones that aren't around (like Microsoft Multimedia Stravinsky, some of the Barney titles) I didn't bother buying on eBay since I've decided not to include them.

  • I've found some issues with the installation of some applications on the Windows 95 Collection and have uploaded a new version which fixes the installation problems and adds two The Magic Bus titles.
    Discs 1 to 4 were updated. Disc 5 remains unchanged.

  • What would make you think WinWorld wouldn't let you provide sources to this stuff? I'm sure you can give links to older stuff, but most likely not newer stuff. What rule were you referring to? Just asking.

  • I know that. I was saying that old software is allowed to be provided here if it's older than Windows XP, or released before the year 2001.

    You can use Alcohol 120% to dump those.

    Well, I do know how to create images with audio tracks of course. The main goal of these collections was to include everything in one place (4.7 GB DVD's) to minimize disc swapping, so individual disc images for each title are out of the scope of this project.

    However, I do plan to create and share proper dumps of all those Microsoft Multimedia composer titles once I get a hold of the original discs (probably in about 2 weeks from now).
    The images that are currently circulating on the internet have incorrect timecodes for the audio tracks so the music is out of sync. The images that I'll share will correct that and play as intended. Stay tuned.

  • As requested, here are the links to the torrent files of the collections that I am allowed to share here at WinWorld:
