No, but you can at least see the site at the last archived page. I clicked on [Download] for Win500 and a zip file pop-up box appeared. I doubt if it will download and I didn't want to try it. You might - who knows?
The download does work. I tried it just for kicks. I was surprised it worked.

I don't think you will ever get a registration key though if you pay for it from what I've read. People must dispute the charge with their payment provider in order to get their money refunded.
It's a shame as Don's software was simple but it worked very well for the few models he supported.

Been using Win92, Win96 and Win500 for years; I just downloaded safety copies to make sure I have everything.

Heaven forbid I lose my software keys; if he's planning to shut down, perhaps he would release the money-ware to public domain with a generic key so those who appreciate his products can continue to use them?

Just not sure I trust the Win500 software from what I have read.
Do Not Trust it at this point, there have been too many issues with people trying to pay for the Win500 Key.
