Cenbase's homepage

What is Cenbase ?

Cenbase is a Windows95 / 3.1 / 3.11 program that saves in an object oriented database, the information contained in all your diskettes and CDs. Then you can search in the base for anything and it tells you where it is . Its use is fast and easy. Also, you can tell it the place where your disks are, so, when you look for any file whose commentary has the words "Photos of Star Trek", the result of the search would be "Directory \photos of the disk 10 which is in the blue box, in the drawer of the desk". Really, the result is that, but told with icons and graphics (instead of text). That's because Cenbase has an object oriented interface and so, it's very easy to use.

Tell me more about Cenbase

Cenbase has been developed in 4 years of intense programming time. It's programmed in C++ and everything is object oriented.
The actual state of the program is final beta, and I WON'T FINISH it , althought it is FULLY WORKING. Anyway, there may be some bugs, although none has been reported so long.

Where can I download Cenbase from ?

You can download Cenbase from this page, just press in the next link to download Cenbase version beta 0.95:

Cenbase.zip (502 Kb.) version 0.95b
By downloading and/or running/using Cenbase you accept the terms of distribution and use.

What are its requirements ?

The requirements of Cenbase are minimum, any computer in which you can run windows, will be able to run Cenbase, and 8 Mb. of RAM are highly recommended if you are going to use CDs in the database. By the way, Cenbase has been developed in a 486/50 with 8 Mb. of RAM and runs smoothly.

How do I install it ?

The installation procedure of Cenbase is very easy. Download the file cenbase.zip to your computer, the decompress it with any decompressor utility which handles zip files ( like WinZip or pkzip ) to any directory (or with latest terminology, folder) of your hard disk and there you have an executable file called cb.exe.

Is this a fully running version of Cenbase or just a demo ?
How is Cenbase distributed ?

You can copy and distribute Cenbase where and when you want, with the only exception of reviews and magazines, which requires a personal authorization of the programmer (me) to distribute it within a CD or disk along with other programs.
The terms of use are another thing.If you are going to add to a base less than 75 diskettes or 7 CDs, you can use Cenbase for free.
But if you are going to have a base with more than 75 diskettes and/or 7 CDs, you have to register and in this way, you will be able to have more than 65500 diskettes or CDs.
This distribution procedure allows the user to test a program to see if it is what he/she needs before paying for it. Also, normal home users (with less than 75 diskettes) can use Cenbase for free. While people who can buy more than 75 diskettes, surely could register for a small fee.
All that means that Cenbase is distributed as Shareware.

By the way, Cenbase is distributed with NO WARRANTIES.
I don't give any kind of warranties, even I cannot be liable for any damage that the use or lack of use of Cenbase can make to any computer, person, animal or object.
