IMPORTANT: The Forbears programs require that the .NET Framework (1.1 or above) be installed

on your PC. The .NET Framework is part of Windows Vista, but earlier versions of Windows

may not have it. The install for each Forbears program will tell you if you need

the .NET Framework. If you do, you can download it by clicking below.

Download the .NET Framework 2.0

Note: This download takes time, since the .NET Framework is very large (23 MB).

After it is downloaded and installed, click on "Download Forbears" again.
