If you've already got a copy of Wave Repair and would like to see
whether it's worth downloading a later version, here is a
history of changes since first release.
You can download Wave Repair from two different sites.
Try the alternate download site if you have any problems with the main one:
|4.9.4 (latest release)
|4.9.0 (last version compatible with Windows 95 OSR2)
|4.5.1 (last version using old method of controlling soundcards)
|3.9 (last 16 bit version; runs under Windows 3.1/3.11)
|Current User Manual (PDF Format)
- Some users have been supplied with pre-release builds of version 4.9.4. The official release
of 4.9.4 brings together the various updates that were included in those builds.
The large increase in the size of the installation program after version 4.9.0
is almost entirely due to the need to switch the helpfile format from the old HLP standard
to a compiled HTML (CHM) file. This was necessary to maintain Windows Vista compatibility.
The program itself has not suddenly become much larger!
The download files are "normal" installation programs.
Just execute the file and follow the on-screen instructions.
(The only exception to this is for version 3.9. This download is a ZIP file;
to install this version, create a directory
where you want to place Wave Repair and unzip the download file into that directory).
Note that installation of Wave Repair creates a single EXE file
plus its associated help and configuration files, all in a single
It does not install any DLLs, ActiveXs, and so on; nor does it update
any system configuration files.
The installation program no longer includes the user manual. The manual is
now provided as separate download.
