    Software

    • WinGrid Windows Grid Square Program (Ver. 0.07 March 4, 1999) [README]
    • WinGrid Windows Grid Square Program (Ver. 0.20 July 28, 2001). WinGrid.exe only.
    • WinGridMap Detailed North America Data file for WinGrid program. This file is over 3 Megabytes. When it is placed in the same location as wingrid.exe the program will take much longer to load and redisplay. If you zoom in to a grid square (CN79) that is on a coast you can see the detail. Mexico has a problem and some day I will find it and fix it. I am also looking for a lower resolution world map. If you have a set of vectors I can use please let me know.
    • msvcirt.dll Here is a copy of a .DLL file needed by the program. If you get a missing .dll file error then extract msvcirt.dll from the zip file and place it in the same directory that wingrid.exe is in.
    • vcl30.dpl Here is a copy of a .DPL file needed by the program. If you get a missing vcl30.dpl file error then extract vcl30.dpl from the zip file and place it in the same directory that wingrid.exe is in.
