YW. But you will never get an official vers 2 for Windows as Claris skipped the Windows version releases from 1 to 3. Whats archived here at the Garden, minus incremental updates & different language releases, is complete.

I don't know if there were Windows v2 test versions, but I guess there may have been.

I would very much like to see an English language Windows ClarisWorks 3.0 archived to here.
