My God ! I don't know what I will do if this ever stops working on windows. For now it still does as of Windows 10, but there is nothing that compares to that...

:(

Midas on 2019-09-05 04:38

FYI, ASuite's homepage states the later v1.5.2 Beta(!) to be the last stable version (see http://www.salvadorsoftware.com/download; stated release date is 2010-02-14, but SF.net repo shows 2008-08-14).

The SF.net repo (https://sourceforge.net/projects/asuite/files/ASuite/) also has a later v2.0 Beta (dated 2015-03-27) not mentioned at the site, with separate 32 and 64-bit download packages. YMMV.

I couldn't run this on win2k; it hides in the system tray without a way to display it. I even tried using Process Explorer's Properties.Image.Bring to Front resulting in the msgbox: No visible windows found for this process

MIKLO on 2016-02-28 20:45

Tim I know this is an old post but I hope by now you have upgraded from Win2K after all it is the twenty first century. For me this software works as advertised!

The PortableApps Platform has been updated (a few times) since this was last updated.
I believe the current version is 11.2 (also there is a version 12 beta, I think its Beta 2)

Please update this listing!

Latest version (v15.0) now supports .NET programs, the first of which appears to be KeePass Professional (or 2.x).
