Publisher of Nutshell and Ultra-Plus database programs


What are Nutshell & Ultra-Plus?

Nutshell was a flat file database for the PC originally introduced as a bundle with Leading Edge computers in 1980. Nutshell was converted to operate on a MAC with a GUI interface in 1987 and was given the name “Filemaker”. Ultra-Plus is a relational version of the Nutshell database introduced in 1989.

How and why should I upgrade to a better solution?

Newer version of windows will not support the use of Nutshell & Ultra-Plus. For each license of the upgrade, we will convert up to 2 files at no charge. Additional files can be converted at a discounted rate.

  • NU Conversion Utility ©
    Your current DOS version consists of five elements: fields, layouts, records, macros, and links. FairSoft will convert the fields, layouts and records. Macros and links can be recreated at additional charge based upon time involved.
