This has most of the functionality of WP 3.5, but works on older or smaller systems.

WordPerfect Version 3.0a for Macintosh

WordPerfect runs on any Macintosh Plus or later, and is accelerated for Power Macintosh! To install for the correct machine, simply choose Install to place WordPerfect and all related files into a folder named "WordPerfect 3.0." The installer will automatically detect whether you are using a Macintosh or Power Macintosh, and will install the correct version for your machine.

Standard installation places several additional fonts onto your hard drive. To use these fonts, drag them onto your System Folder (if you’re running System 7 or later) or use the Font/DA Mover (if you’re using System 6).

Choose Custom to install selected portions of the product, or override the standard installation settings.

Just look at this page.

Looks very nice from the pics and description... 35Euro tho' ...

I've been able to pick up whole old Macs for less - tho' that's getting harder to do these days too Sad

Franky, it's great that you can add the French content to the site, so I am sorry to hear you've lost some treasures along the way.

Good. As you (may) know, one of my hobby is to find French versions of Mac softwares to add here. I'm looking for all the Tomb Raider games. I owned the two first & you know what, it was a gift from Apple in this era. But I have lost them. Sad I have only the manuals... The fourth episode in French is rare, even for Windows. Just look at this page. This one was destined for destruction by the company I worked for, the game & the book. Sadly, it was not the only one & a lot of them were destroyed (PC, Mac, Hybrid). So, this one is a survivor from this era & recently from a fire. Ironic for a game which tell a story about Seth...

Ah yes, RAM Doubler - breaking the floppy protection on that was a pleasure and a revelation for me, too, after all those years. Glasses

My newest hobby is to restore archives that were not packaged optimally to better serve their intended targets. For example the install disks for this page will be replaced soon with copies suitable for mounting in System 6.x & 7.x. As the ones above now, are in compressed Disk Copy 6 format - and being Disk Copy 6, cannot mount in SSW 6. Or if running Mini vMac they cannot mount by dragging into Mini vMac's window because they are compressed disk images. So, they're up for a refreshing makeover... [Edit] and done.

And YW, again, Mike. Smile

I owned the French original version, not exactly this one. This was one of the rarest softwares I have bought 25 years ago for my LC 475. Others were TeamAgenda & the popular RAM Doubler. Never thinking for that last, I would have found a way to crack the floppy protection 25 years later... Tongue

Thanks for adding the French copy, Franky.
