AutoMate 2 (32-bit Windows and DOS)


AutoMate has been a familiar name to many in the automotive service industry since the very late 1980's.  AutoMate 1 was initially written in Clarion2 and compatible with Windows and DOS versions that supported 16-bit executables. AutoMate 1 made way for AutoMate 2, just a few years after in the early 1990's,  and was one of the first 32-bit executables written in Clarion3, a leading programming language of the time. Still supporting DOS, 16-bit and 32-bit  Windows operating systems, AutoMate2 proved itself to be as a rock solid, tank of a program. It was and still is an extremely reliable as it is still being used today in Windows10 32-bit operating systems.

After a life spanning over 30 years, AM2 has reached it's end. The last version released is AM2 v8.105. External utility programs such as the V8Spooler, AutoLetter and AMBackup, are also no longer being developed.

Support regarding technical issues and data correction can be pre-purchased.
