Evan's web site




This web site is devoted to the programming projects of Evan Olds (me). Most are free of charge but I also have a few links to commercial apps that I make. As for the free apps, I make these for fun in my spare time and offer them for free under the condition that you use them at your own risk. There is a list of projects on the left and a brief explanation of each project is below.

Unless there is a specific requirements list on the project’s page, the programs require Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7. Most require version 2.0 or later of the .NET framework installed. This is available through the Windows Update for Windows XP users and I believe it comes preinstalled on Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you are running Mac OS X or Linux you may be able to run some of the programs using Mono.

A few of these programs require the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86), which from what I've seen so far comes with Windows 7 but not XP or Vista.
