For anybody who is considering downloading the now free version now made
available by Michael Owen, (See quoted email below), be aware that if you
are going to be running this program on Windows 7 or 10, you will have to
use Windows Compatibility settings to make the program think it running in a
Windows XP environment.  After that, it will run pretty much as it did on XP
machines.  Windows 10's Compatibility wizard will try and set it up as
Windows 7 but you should manually set the program to execute under Windows
XP Service Pack 2 mode to make it go.

The "latest" copy of Nova for Windows is at

You should also download and install this patch for compatibility with later
(post-XP) versions of Windows...

Nova has not changed in several years.  I can no longer compile it or make
any changes.

Nova is now freeware.  The free license code is NLD-8554457  You are welcome
to download and run it to your heart's content.

No support, no bug fixes.
