ORDERING -- WALL STREET RAIDER v. 8.56
Wall Street Raider is distributed freely as a shareware program. While the shareware version has most of the functionality of the registered version(s), games are limited to 2 "years" of play, compared to 35 "years" in the registered version. Also, in the shareware version, several features are not enabled: Stock charts for individual stocks, short selling of stocks, put and call options trading, and speculating with interest rate "swap" derivatives. You will need to order a registered version to enjoy those features.

(By the way, there are no "registration codes" to unlock the sharware version. When you register, you are sent a download link for a full copy of the latest registered version of the software, which is a larger .EXE program, different from the shareware versions.)
We temporarily halted sales of Version 8.55 in February, 2019, due to several reports of a very serious bug that was occasionally making the game unplayable, in Versions 8.50 and 8.55, so we went back to selling v. 8.12 until we finally were able to generate the bug on our system, and then track down the cause and fix it, in Version 8.56, which was released after a month of further testing, on April 1, 2019. All that trouble was caused by an logic weakness in one line of code (of over 110,000) that could occasionally corrupt the a game's data, but it is fixed now and we are back in business!
To order the registered version and obtain the additional features and ability to play much longer games, to see how your investment and company management strategies work out over the long term, you have two choices, if you are a first-time customer:
SUGGESTION WHEN ORDERING: YOU DO NOT NEED THE 2-YEAR EXTENDED DOWNLOAD SERVICE OFFERED BY SHARE-IT OR OTHER VENDORS (FOR AN EXTRA FEE). WE WILL REPLACE YOUR COPY OF WALL STREET RAIDER (FREE, AT ANY TIME) IF YOU LOSE IT FOR ANY REASON (DISK CRASH, NEW COMPUTER, ETC.). JUST E-MAIL US WITH YOUR NAME AND/OR REGISTRATION NUMBER TO REQUEST A REPLACEMENT COPY.
NOTE: UPDATES/UPGRADES FOR REGISTERED USERS COST ONLY $12.95. Registered users may purchase any subsequent upgrades or new releases, including the (electronic) strategy manual, for $12.95, instead of the regular price of $29.95 for the "Full Package" registered version or the $21.95 price of the "basic" registered version for new customers. (The update package for registered users is the same as the "Full Package," just a lot cheaper.)

CHECK OUT THE NEW FEATURES ADDED IN RECENT RELEASES OF W$R: If you have been playing an older version of W$R, check out our Updates page to see what improvements have been added to W$R subsequent to the version you are currently using.
NOTE REGARDING REAL COMPANY NAMES: The shareware version of W$R you may have been playing up until now does not utilize real company names, unlike the registered version.
Note regarding sales taxes and VAT taxes: U.S. purchasers will be charged sales tax by our vendor MyCommerce/Share-It if your address is in the following states: CO, GA, IA, IL, MN, NE, or UT, plus, thanks to a recent Supreme Court decision that allows states to collect sales tax on Internet sales, a number of other states will soon be requiring that we collect sales tax. If you reside in any state where our retailer (MyCommerce/Share-It) is not yet required to collect the tax, no sales tax will be collected from you, but you may be required by state law to pay use tax on your purchase (except in states with no sales or use taxes: Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon -- Alaska has sales and use tax in some boroughs, as in Juneau, but not in Anchorage or Fairbanks).
