    Preferably on the web... I'm looking for a specific program (Paperport 10 Professional)

    It seems this version of it has turned into rocking horse poo since the newer versions of Paperport have been released... but I don't want version 11, I want version 10!

    Any places you guys buy older software releases would be greatly appreciated.

    I have looked on the company's website, and they only push their newer software. eBay is also seemingly blank, though I would prefer not to buy off a marketplace as the license is 'one use only' and I wouldn't like to take the risk of being 'done over'.

    I typically buy old and discontinued software on eBay and Amazon, so I'm not much help. :)

    I concur with GBL and BM:rocks

    However if I can't find it there I also try SaverSoftware, but they only sell version 11. Still it's worth a look for other things!:biggrin8)

    Flippin Heck:ohmy

    I can only find one seller on Amazon that sells pp version 10 and they want $109.90 for it seems a bit steep!

    Hold on before you buy version 10, have seen the reviews for it?

    Here's a link from Epinions.com that shows several reviews from people who have upgraded from version 8 or 9 to version 10. They slagg the product off a bit! Maybe you should go for version 8?:blink
