Bah Humbug - MicroSoft strikes again! The Windows SDK 3.1 Resource Compiler by default marks all compiled programs as requiring Windows 3.1 or higher, even if they do not. As a result, IconMaster versions 1.2A, and 1.2B will not run on Windows 3.0. None of the Beta testers cought it since they had all upgraded. Sorry for the inconvenience. Version 1.2C is now available and really does run on Windows 3.0 and 3.1.

The PC-SIG Library on CD-ROM contains over 800 megabytes of shareware and includes more than 300 new programs, 550 updated programs, and the addition of 75 megabytes of Windows 3.x shareware. The user-interface has been completely re-engineered to take advantage of the HyperWriter! hypermedia and multimedia authoring system from NTERGAID, Inc. The implementation of HyperWriter! provides significant performance and ease of use enhancements. Programs can access and download much faster than with previous editions. Programs have been reorganized and indexed for better referencing. Users just c lick with a mouse, or point with the cursor, on a program name to see a complete description of the program. Downloading or copying a program is handled automatically by HyperWriter! Addition of a preview option is especially important for anyone who uses images, icons, or fonts. "You can preview the whole library of images to find the right one," according to Bruce Kent, product development manager. "This CD finally makes it possi ble to conserve your disk space and paper, yet still have all the information you need to make an informed decision," said Kent. All new and updated programs have been reviewed and tested by PC-SIG. Every program goes through extensive virus checking using the most recent version of VIRUSCAN from McAfee Associates, and other anti-virus software. According to Kent, "In the ten ye ars we've distributed shareware, we have never had a confirmed report of a virus on any of our distributed programs or CD-ROMs." The PC-SIG Library on CD-ROM, Eleventh Edition has a list price of $179. Upgrades from previous editions are available for $99. Users of PC-SIG's Essential Home & Business Collection CD-ROM can upgrade for $120.

S H A R E W A R E M A G A Z I N E ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Shareware Magazine has distinguished itself as the only internationally distributed periodical devoted to the use and business of shareware. Shareware Magazine provides detailed reviews of new products, hard-hitting comparisons of shareware programs with regular retail software, and timely information about changes in the industry and the latest technology. Intriguing columnists and regular features add to the excitement. The beginners section sheds light on new user's concerns regarding everything from choosing the right operating system to alleviating the intimidation of using on-line systems. Educational sections focus on how low cost shareware can aid in classroom learning, curriculum development, and as a forum for discussing the impact of computers and technology in schools. Graphics Gallery renders expert advice and suggestions on how to better work with graphics, desktop publishing, CAD systems, and the Windows environment. Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language. And columnists provide that subjective component, sometimes controversial, that calls for a closer look at the way we compute and how shareware effects what we do. Published bimonthly, Shareware Magazine is available on a subscription or at your local newsstand or computer bookstore. In conjunction with PC-SIG, there are special benefits for subscribers as well as opportunities for discount purchases from PC-SIG.
