What happened to the UBCD4Windows project? The website looks like it's dead.

I'm not sure. Ben (the project lead) hasn't been in contact with me for quite a while.

Would be great if someone picks it up and give it a much needed update...

The website (www.ubcd4win.com) is still up but the forum has been down for quite a while now.

http://whois.domaintools.com/ubcd4win.com

Domain was renewed 2012, so someone must know its still there as they are being charged for it. Forums are completely down... no update since 2010...wow.

Victor, by any chance have you tried contacting the domain owner and see if we can get it moved or something so it can be revived? Without forums, makes things difficult. I don't see any other option.

Hello,

I know this is very old, but I just happened to come across this while remembering the good 'ol days, and decided I might as well respond.

As some of you may know, I was heavily involved with the project right up until it was abandoned. I have been in contact with Ben a handful of times since the project stopped in 2010. To put it simply, he has lost all interest in it and doesn't plan to ever come back as he's busy with his family and other things.

I also asked if he had a backup of the forum so I can try to bring it back online as a kind of archive of useful information. He said he did not or if he did, he wouldn't have a clue where it was.

Thus, it really seems like such a great project truly is dead and all the wonderful information pertaining to it (except what is left at www.ubcd4win.org) is gone. Very sad, but I'm sure someone could sort of reverse engineer and update it if they wanted to. Though, in my opinion, there's better paths or tools to use, such as WinBuilder and whatnot.

Anyway, there's my 2 cents...

Yes, you can still download the last available version of the project, which was in June of 2010. If you aren't familiar with it, please take a look at the website for info and instructions, which is still up at: http://www.ubcd4win.org/
