It's no longer available as a product from Newport Programs. It is an old bit of software, but has always done a great job. It will not run in a 64 Bit environment like Windows 7 or 8 from what I hear.


You can get it to run under Windows 7 or 8 I believe. And even under MAC, linux ...etc.

Newport ran under Windows 3.1, which was a interface program that ran under DOS

By installing DOSBox and then Win 3.1 within that you can emulate Windows 3.1 under a range of current operating systems.

http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1..

Here's a DOSBox for instance for Windows that contains Newport (that's for Windows only, for other operating systems (MAC etc.) you'd have to install the appropriate DOSbox for that operating system)

http://www.jfholdings.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/DOSBox-Win31-Newport.zip

That's a compressed (ZIP) file so you have to first extract all of the files to a directory somewhere (uses about 40MB of disk space), and then run the #start.windows31.bat file that starts up dosbox etc. Copying (extracting) the files onto a flash stick makes it portable, but that can be a little slow to run (but still usable).

Newport's date might need adjusting, there's a date code that can be changed in stock.npt to the more recent correct value as indicated by this web page

http://www.jfholdings.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/newport_stock_npt_date.htm

DOSBox emulation will lock the mouse into the emulator region i.e. you first need to click in the windows area to get the mouse focused. To break the mouse free again its a Ctrl-F10 key combination. To toggle DOSbox full screen/windowed its ALT-ENTER.

Under older versions of windows you had to double click the top right area as the 'close' window action.
