WordPerfect is a word processing application. At the height of its popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s, it was the de facto standard word processor, but has since been eclipsed in sales by Microsoft Word. Although the DOS and Microsoft Windows versions are best known, it has been available for a wide variety of computers and operating systems, including Mac OS, Linux, the Apple IIe, a separate verson for the Apple IIgs, most popular versions of Unix, VMS, Data General, System/370, AmigaOS, Atari ST, and OS/2.

Version 3 makes extensive use of the technologies Apple introduced in Systems 7.0–7.5, while remaining fast and capable of running well on older machines. Corel released version 3.5 in 1996, followed by the improved version 3.5e. It was never updated beyond that, and the product was eventually discontinued.

WordPerfect 3.5e for Macintosh has been made freeware by Corel, and can be downloaded below. It is a great, free alternative to Microsoft Word! Many users still swear by its fast handling of very large files.

Interesting and thanks, mrdav. The CD version installs as Corel WordPerfect 3.5.1, it also installs Netscape 2.0.2, plus on the ROM are additional optional files like fonts and clip art etc.

We could have it archived here also. Probably in it's own page as an intermediary progression from Novell's WP 3.5 to Corel WP 3.5.1, predating the WP 3.5e (Enhanced) final version.

The ReadMe file in the 3.5e install explains the WP version progression as:

Novell released WordPerfect 3.5. Corel bought WP and released free fixes 3.5.1 through 3.5.4. A new version was slated to be 4.0. When Apple canceled OpenDoc, WP released the new version as 3.5e, in 1997. A patch was released in 1998.

I can can add it up, if you'd like.

OK, this site, which is forbidden seems to be forbidden only for a few countries, for example in Poland, so try to open it thru proxy which allows big file transfers.

You don't need a serial. It works without one. Just ignore the serial dialog or invent a serial.
Excellent support pages for WP 3.5e are
