Borland Quattro and Quattro Pro







SE 1.0

With v1.0 there is no installer. To use the software, copy all files from all disks to a folder on your hard drive. To configure Quattro for floppy-only operation, run floppy.bat on the help disk.

5.0 includes versions for both DOS and Windows 3.x.
Note: The first Windows version, released in 1992, was numbered "1.0". The next release jumped to "5.0".

Quattro Pro 5.6 for DOS is the final release for the MS-DOS platform. This version was released by Corel, who had acquired Quattro Pro and WordPerfect from Novel. It was bundled as a part of WordPerfect Office 6.2 for DOS.

The "SE" version (Quattro Pro Special Edition) is a scaled-down version of Quattro Pro priced for the home market. It lacks the WYSIWYG of the full version. Although labeled "1.0", it is based off Quattro Pro 3 or 4.
