System Requirements

The Protoweb Browser runs on most versions of Windows, from Windows 98 to the latest version of Windows 11. Older versions of Windows may require a .NET Framework 2.0 installation, see below for installation notes.
  • Windows 98 or newer
  • .NET Framework 2.0

– Windows 98 requires the original version of .NET Framework 2.0, SP1 and SP2 do not support Windows 98.
– NET Framework 2.0 has a prerequisite of Internet Explorer 5.01 or later on Windows 98.
– Windows 2000 with SP3 or later can use .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 but not SP2.
– On Windows XP you can also install .NET Framework 3.0 or 3.5 as they also include .NET Framework 2.0.
– Windows Vista and 7 should have .NET Framework 3.0 install by default which includes .NET Framework 2.0.
– Windows 8/8.1 and 10 should prompt you to install the proper .NET Framework when attempting to launch the app if you do not already have it installed.
– Note that .NET Core 2.0 and .NET Standard 2.0 are NOT the same thing as .NET Framework 2.0

Download

There are two flavors of the web browser. The Installer version comes with an installer, and will set the program up on your computer after you run the file. The Portable version is a .zip file which you will need to extract manually to a folder of your choosing, and then run from there.
