Running PeoplePutty... From the Future
« on: February 06, 2019, 11:14:31 pm »
Hey folks!
Would anybody still around be willing to share their PeoplePutty installer with me??
I can't seem to find one anywhere in this day and age.  : (

People Putty is no longer supported by Haptek, as you likely know and it does not run (as far as I know) on any OS higher than Windows XP, which is also no longer supported.

It was not configured to operate on 64 bit systems. I heard that someone sort of got it to run on a Vista machine (remember that lovely OS?) but that's doubtful.

I think Chris Shaw and his brother, Robert have both left the building!

Good luck!!

Thanks Art for your response!!

I actually have everything needed to run it - except a working copy of the software itself.
Scouring the Internet, Forums, FileShare sites, and even WayBackMachiene didn't provide any results.
So I just figured I'd try asking here to see if anyone was willing share what they had.

It is sad to see such a groovy piece of programming disappear through time,
but maybe someday A working copy will turn up.  :-D

I'd love to have a copy of it as well, to try my hand at creating some new 'heads' for my HAL :)

Couldn't one operate it on Win 7/8.1/10 through a virtual machine running XP?

Hmm...now THAT's a thought worth trying.

With all the time that has passed, it's doubtful that I would be able to locate my old copy of it, but I will have a look.

Their DEMO is still available online but I think it did not allow for saving any creations.

Surely there are a few people out there who still have a working version of it...???
