Hello jacco123

You may be right, but I prefer not getting OS2World into trouble. I prefer not to share any software key of abandonware on the forums without explicit and documented (email) permission from the author.
I don't want to risk the 24 years that OS2World had been online a for a simple product key.

Hello jacco,
as much as I'd like to help you, fact is eComStation is still an OS/2 version and, as such, protected by law.
Since IBM never stated it can be downloaded and installed freely, the best course of action is to avoid trying pirate installations.

Hi Neil

Did you notice that ecomstation.com is still on-line?

Just to add something, yesterday when I replied to jacco123, I tried to visit ecomstation.com and it was not working. I guessed that it was gone for good, but now I realize the website is still there. I stand corrected.

I had the same.... I was able to access it again. But right now it has gone offline again.
Now if anybody can tell me if I am wrong. When the website www.ecomstation.com is go to the buy section on the website.
It links to shop.ecomstation.com.
However try and visit https://shop.ecomstation.com/  it shows a text:
" redirecting to main eComStation website"
That has been the case for weeks it. Seems the webshop where you could buy eComStation is no longer online ???

Correct if I am wrong.

Not really helpful at all to give a working key for a old operating system . It is not for sale anymore and the company does not exist anymore. Why there are people thinks this is piracy ? This is abadonware . Not for sale anymore . I try this system on a old pc . But without a key it is total useless. And i do not buy a old operating system. A shame to give no serial key for a old system . Like winworld.com they has no problem with serials. I ask on winworld for a serial . This place hide against piracy and ibm .come on . Ibm does nothing with os/2 anymore . So whats the problem ?

It's Martin's site that he has put 24 years into. If he doesn't want people putting abandoned ware product keys on here, we should respect that. The forum has been great for the community and Martin deserves a lot of thanks and respect of his mostly simple rules.

It's legally not allowed to give away a personal key for this product. Period. If someone decides to not play to the rules so be it. But you shouldn't complain when others respect the laws. Maybe someone will sell you his license? It's legally allowed to sell a software license you bought in the EU. So if someone would sell you or donate to you his license ....

It's also not true the IBM does nothing. They have contracted with Arca Noae to supply an OS/2-compatible operating system. Downloading MCP is also a violation of their license.

Should naming the sites where you can download pirated copies should banned on OS/2 World?

A violation ? Serious?
I downloaded lot of iso's with a key . I am happy to not buy old systems like os/2.
They are not worth it anymore today .

Hi Jacco123

Whatever you believe about software companies, abandoware, the market, the law, or whatever you consider fair or not, it is your own thing.  You can do whatever you want in your house and with your life, respecting or not the laws of your country.

I personally don't want to risk OS2World to be taken down, that's why it is not allowed here.

The problem is that it keeps going on and offline it seems the site.
Click on this link
https://www.ecomstation.com/where_purchase.phtml
Now click on shop.ecomstation.com
It seems webshop is permanently offline.
