    I have been looking for Microsoft Works 8.5 (primarily) and Microsoft Works 9.0 retail or volume versions, but have been unsuccessful.

    Although, Microsoft Works 8.5 is mostly desired preferred, I do also have an interest in examining Microsoft Works 9.0.

    I request assistance finding or acquiring Microsoft Works 8.5 or Microsoft Works 9.0.


    EDIT: Non-vendor specific OEM versions are not as desirable as retail or volume versions, but are acceptable if the retail or volume versions are not available/locatable.

    I have downloaded, examined, and tested the Microsoft Works 8.5 ISO image from archive.org. Its checksum value is given in the in "WORKS8.5_files.xml" file of the archive.org Microsoft Works 8.5 download file set and is:
    Code:
    992c0e35944a09019e589d60e793a5d2a9f1fccc
    The archive.org Works 8.5 ISO image has the following checksum characteristics:
    Code:
    WORKS8.iso
    Size: 324,556,800 bytes
    CRC32: b5c0485d
    MD5: 3c550acca4a2837baf4f69f60ce47c50
    SHA-1: 992c0e35944a09019e589d60e793a5d2a9f1fccc

    The version of Microsoft Works appears to be a non-vendor specific OEM version of Microsoft Works 8.5; its Product ID is in the form:
    Code:
    xxxxx-OEM-xxxxxxx-xxxxx
    Not quite what I was initially looking for, but it is a good start. It is certainly better than nothing.

    I have been able to find various OEM version (OEM Works 8.5, OEM Works 9.0, and OEM Works SE 9.0) apparently untouched disc images and a retail, Self-Extracting Microsoft Works 9.0 Setup file backup up from a direct-download Microsoft resource, but so far that is it.
