Arachnophilia 4.0 (legacy, no longer supported)

Arachnophilia 4.0 is now out of date

Arachnophilia has been rewritten in Java, which means the new version (5.0) will run on any platform that supports Java 2 (virtually any computer or platform you can name). This has been a large effort, but Java's features made it comparatively easy. The new version is much better than the old, and it is CareWare as always.

Arachnophilia 4.0 is the last version written to run only on Windows. All new versions (and my other new programs like JTides ) will be portable between platforms. This is because I have decided it is immoral to write programs that only run on Windows. For my reasons, please read my Boycott Microsoft page and the pages linked to it.

Please consider upgrading to the new version of Arachnophilia.

Download Arachnophilia Executable-Only Version 4.0 Build 5310 (11/06/2001)
  • This ZIP file contains only the executable file (arach.exe). This is the fastest download, but you must already have downloaded the full version above recently, and there is no setup program — you need to know the location of your Arachnophilia program directory. Just use an unZIP program to unpack this file, then drop the contents into the Arachnophilia program directory.

    This option is for experienced computer users. If you download this version and Arachnophilia does not run correctly, please download and install the full version before assuming there is something wrong.
If your browser reports that these files are not available, it is actually because the Internet cannot handle your download at this time. The files are present on this server and your browser is providing you with a misleading error message. Try again at a less busy time of day.
— Upgrade Caution --

If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Arachnophilia and you have changed or created new toolbars or keyboard macros, be sure to back up your changes before upgrading. Go to the Arachnophilia program directory and choose the "toolbars" subdirectory. Make copies of all the files in this subdirectory. Then, when the upgrade is complete, copy your changed files back to this subdirectory.
