CDex needs Your help!

Dear CDex users!

My goal is to improve the CDex development as much as possible.
Therefore a major boost within the development has to be done.

New Windows versions are released and still many users want support for Windows 95.

Although it is 2007 now, there is a possibility to support these old Windows versions as long as possible.
At least within the CDex 1.x version. This means that with the release of CDex 2 the support for some

There is still the possibility to provide support for these systems, using the

CDex license updated to GPLv3
