Hi there. The Antares download location is broken. Does anyone know of any other download locations I can get the file from.

Silly me as did not save it anywhere

Thanks

I see what you mean. I'm not sure of version (maybe 1.1) but I suspect this contains the install:
Code:
05/08/2013  16:30           499,712 Antares.exe

I've temporarily stuck it on [EDIT: dropbox link removed now http://haselgrove.id.au/antares/ seems to be back].

There is a slightly later version, but I'm sure that one is fine.

It's not the installer, so z4t.exe might also be handy.

There is an web archive copy reported as captured on November 2014

https://web.archive.org/web/20141129082731/http://haselgrove.id.au/antares/

It looks like all the links, executables, drivers etc. were captured at the same time.

Is this another case of the original author moving on from Toppy equipment and no longer having any interest in maintaining support programs?

Perhaps a copy of this valuable resource needs to be hosted on the Toppy UK site.

..... the version of Antares I'm using is dated 28/07/2012, about 10 weeks more recent than the archive.

Dead link here. Looks like it was never made the "latest" version.

The source appears to be on GitHub, for those with the means to build it. (Looks like an MS Visual Studio project.)

I have that version and the zip file as well.
Edit: Actually, the zip only contains the exe anyway.

alan_m is right, this file and the support files and docs need to be hosted. Maybe a PM to qbits just to check the status of it all? If his forum account is still active, he should get an email.

Looking at qubit's page on Antares 1.1 http://haselgrove.id.au/antares/ he has put everything in the public domain, so no need to contact him - just need to keep the support documentation available.

I pm'ed qubits; he was not aware that his site was non-available and thinks it is possibly a DNS issue.

He confirmed that he intended to keep it going long term (my words).
