Take the SSE Setup Challenge!
I am open to the possibility of selling the entire SSE Setup and/or Simple Data Backup product (including all code, this website, etc.). Both products are mature and stable and run on and support OS's up to and including Windows 10. This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated person/business. The codebase for both products is VB6 with SSE Setup also utilizing C++. If you think you might be interested, please contact me for further information. Serious inquiries only. None of this affects my current support or development; I have NOT abandoned any software and am planning to continue to release updates as needed or warranted.
