Claris Home Page 3.0 full install set for Macintosh and PPC Macintosh. Also includes Windows installers (Win 95 - Win 2k). These come from the original CD but have had the additional Claris and 3rd party demos removed to make the upload smaller.

MD5 checksum 1: ec8b4e6c08ee78d32f44e6356e84fabf *c-hp3-macf.sit
The Mac installer set above (top download link) is contained in a Disk Copy 6.3 image file and was compressed with StuffIt 3.6 (.sit) for better backwards compatibility.

MD5 checksum 2: cddb8ec5030d8d3db62dc38d05798eb7 *
The Win installer set (2nd download link above) is in the form of a .ISO and archived as .ZIP, it can be burned to CD. I've included it as both Mac & Win versions were on the original CD (The 2nd DL above erroneously states "For Mac OS 7 - Mac OS 9", its not - its the Win installers).

When installing either to Macintosh or to Windows, running for the 1st time, the personalization dialog asks for a serial. This is optional and is not required.

For the 3rd download item above: This is the full CD image (hybrid Mac/Windows) installer set for Claris Home Page 3.0, plus full of demos and other superfluous stuff to bloat the CD archive. If you want to just install CHP 3, then the 1st two smaller 23 MB DL's above are fine as is. This is a Zipped archive containing a hybrid .iso image.

MD5 checksums for the .zip archive & its .iso content:
2f2433a6741b7f290f7e8998da21c6d0 *
0acaf711d638eb4cd232bb85b8ee44d1 *HOMEPAGE3.ISO

Available Separately: Version 1.0, Version 2.0

Architecture: 68k PPC x86 (Windows)

Suitable for any Macintosh with a 68020 CPU or higher. Native on both 68k & PPC Mac.

The Windows version runs on any machine capable of running Windows 95 or newer (untested by me on any Win OS beyond XP).

This software will not run on Mini vMac or any Mac with a 68000 only CPU.

@krausjxotv: Thanks for the explanation and info. Interesting to hear about (lack of) PNG support, too.

Within weeks of the final Home Page release, parent company Apple Computer reorganized Claris into FileMaker Inc., with Home Page and the FileMaker database as its only remaining products.[4] Home Page was discontinued in 2001, though it continued to run in the Classic Environment of Mac OS X through version 10.4. Home Page was designed for HTML 3.2, and consequently does not support HTML 4.0. Home Page cannot display Portable Network Graphics (PNG) images, and if it is used to upload them, the PNG files will be corrupted and rendered unviewable.[5]

Claris Home Page 3.0 was one of two products of FileMaker,

Facing declining sales, Claris management decided that FileMaker was the only product worth keeping, and put all of the rest of the products on indefinite hold. By 1998 the transition was complete and the company renamed itself as FileMaker Inc. Claris's only other major product, ClarisWorks, was taken back by Apple to become AppleWorks. The company kept FileMaker and Claris HomePage 3.0. The latter was discontinued in 2001 leaving FileMaker as its lone offering until January 8, 2008, when the company released Bento, a template-based database application with a leaning toward information from other applications. Bento was discontinued on September 30, 2013.

@krausjxotv: One of the PDF's that you uploaded (Dear_FileMaker_Customer.pdf) appears to be misplaced and is meant for a FileMaker Pro upload. If you know the version of FileMaker that it refers to, it can be moved to that page.

@Macmaster: I have the full version of this on CD. I am going to upload it for archiving at some stage (2012, likely). In the meantime, use the trial version that is already at the Garden - under the same name as this entry (this one is a double-up & probably should be removed). The trial is fully functional and only requires deleting its Preferences File once a month to keep it running indefinitely. And, if the DL for the trial on that page doesn't work, then grab the one from this page.

Also, this page erroneously mentions a serial number as a separate download. No Claris product, including Home Page 3.0, requires a SN for installation, with the sole exception of Claris FileMaker Pro v4.x - all SNs for every Claris Product prior to FMP-4 were an optional entry only. There were a zillion warez SN's given out for any Claris product, prior. They were all superfluous and pointless. i.e: leave it as the default "See registration card" and get on with it.

The download links don't appear to work; in Firefox it shows up as an XML file and in IE I get a 404.

Actually I tried uploading several files on one page quite some time ago, and the additional files didn't show up. Guess it's been fixed since then...

Cool! I had no idea you could upload several files on the same page. It would be nice if we could also add a caption though, so you know what the difference is... Admins? Smile
