Unfortunately, ProMash seems dead. I was able to run in a Windows 7 VM (used the free VMware Workstation).

However, I've now moved onto BeerSmith. IMO, BeerSmith is far better than ProMash.

I run PM on both Win 7 & 10, no problem.  Nothing special. I've always preferred it to Beersmith, and now I pfreer Grainfather software to either.

Going by memory with the following. I may be incorrectly remembering as it's been a while since I used ProMash. I don't believe ProMash is so equipment dependent as BS.

I will admit, when I was using ProMash, early 1990's, I really didn't know what I was doing. I look at my brewing notes from that time and now think “What was I thinking!”.

I copied the 3 ProMash 3.5 floppies onto a USB drive and still the ProMash patch/update in case I ever need it.

I use it on Windows 11. It has a couple of minor glitches but nothing big. I basically brew one or two styles of beer and use it to keep a log of how the brews are going. I do the same with my online blog so when my computer crashes like in the past, I have brew sessions to go by.

I still use it on WIN XP in VM. As you have said it still works great.
