Sd - Downloading for PC Compatibles

Both Sd and Sdtty are available for PC compatibles running Microsoft Windows.  (Note: summary of availability.)  They are believed to run under DOS, or Windows 3.1, NT4.0, 95, 98, ME, 2000, NT, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, 11.

Sdtty (but not Sd) is available, in source form, for other systems with 64-bit hardware.

Sd and Sdtty are compiled for 64-bit systems. We believe that all modern computers can handle this. Version 39.29, the last one for 32-bit systems, will continue to be made available; see below.

The program is no longer maintained for Windows 3.1 or DOS. You can get the (very old) version 34.7 for those systems. See below. If you must download install3.exe below, you will get version 34.7.

For Windows, you can download the file "install.exe" from this web page onto your computer. It contains both Sd and Sdtty, and a copy of the manual and release notes. You can also download the documentation files shown below. The documentation files contain the same documents, packed into convenient form, that you can browse or download from the Documentation page.

  1. Download the file(s) from your Web browser. 

    There have been a number of recent false positives from anti-virus software, due to that software getting increasingly picky. You may need to disable anti-virus software when downloading. All versions of install.exe are scanned for viruses before release, and the computer on which Sd is developed is scanned frequently.

    You can also download the documentation files in "bulk" form to your computer.

    Use these for Windows or DOS:

    Use these for Linux or other varieties of Unix:
  2. Launching any or all of these:
     > textdoc
     > pdfdoc

    will unpack the requested documentation files.

  3. You may now delete the .exe or .tgz files or save them for backup purposes.

  4. If you are upgrading from a previous version, read the Release Notes.
