    Software Cleanup ( Monarch Nostalgia )

    Nick Osdale-Popa

      While cleaning up our software inventory I ran across the following 3 1/2" Disks:

      /size[list=1][*](1) Blue Low Density disk Copyright 1990 title simply says Monarch (v2 is written in pencil on it)

       

      (the rest of the disks are High Density)

      _[/size][*](2) Disks Copyright 1994 Monarch For Windows v1

      _[/size][*](1) Disk Copyright 1995 Monarch For Windows Update Disk v1.02

      _[/size][*](4) Disks Copyright 1995 Monarch For Windows no version # given (possibly v2 because....)

      _[/size][*](4) Disks Copyright 1995 Monarch For Windows, v2 is written on it

      _[/size][*](3) Disks Copyright 1996 Monarch v3.01 Windows 3.1 Single-user Edition

      _[/size][*](2) Disks Copyright 1996 Monarch Report Explorer v1 Windows 3.1 Stand-alone Edition

      _[/size][*](1) Disk Copyright 1996 Monarch Report Explorer v1 Windows 3.1 Plug-in Edition

      _[/size][*](5) Disks Copyright 1998 Monarch v4.03 Windows 95 Single-user Edition

      _[/size][*](2) Disks Copyright 1998 Monarch Report Explorer v1.02 Windows 95/NT

      _[/size][*]and then we have v5 - v7 on CD.[/size][/list]

      Whew!

       

      So is that the complete lineage of Monarch?

          I have V3 onwards, all single user. In original boxes complete with mousemats and full documentation when offered. (No intermediate versions on disk/cd though. I think I still have the download files however ...

           

          Any bids?

            Any Monarch user who wants to impress me, show me a 5 1/4" copy (on two diskettes) of Monarch 1.0 (for DOS) - along with a 3 1/2" copy, that's how I rec'd my original Monarch order in an earlier life as a financial analyst in March 1991   smile.gif[/img]
