In honor of my long-time friend Jack McFarland who recently passed, wh offer for your personal enjoyment and education, the greatest kid's painting program ever made, Flying Colors. This version runs on Windows 95 through Windows 10! Note that in order to see the fantastic color cycling animations, right click the program file, and set it to 256 color mode, with compatibility for Windows 95, and it should run just fine!
To add to the enjoyment of Flying Colors, download an expansion pack. The full set of expansion packs including dinosaurs, tropical animals, outer space, cars, funny faces, and more are available for $10.

Magic Mouse products are available here for download in time limited versions. You can freely download and install these versions on your computer for evaluation. This method allows you to try our products before you purchase them. You can evaluate a program during a trial period of 30 days after the installation without any cost or obligation. Because our products have large art libraries, the demo versions only have a small fraction of the total artwork in the full product. The full products normally ship on CD-ROM, but are available via download by request; just email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the demo version of Discus will superimpose "DEMO" on all prints.
To purchase a product, see the Online Store section. After your order and you will receive by mail a CDROM containing the software.
All our programs require no installation or uninstallation. To remove a demo version, simply put the files into the trash.

Downloading the install file
Choose the program and the version you want to download.
Note the name of the file and its size.
On Windows systems, a dialog box opens and asks you "What would you like to do with this file". Click on "Save it to disk". In a second window, choose a directory to save the file. Then click OK.
On Macintosh systems, after downloading your web browser should automatically launch StuffIt Expander, which will unpack the files.
The download begins. Please be patient and wait until the end of the process. If the download is interrupted, the downloaded file is corrupted. See below how to proceed ("If the downloaded file is corrupted")
Important: When done, check that the file size is correct (see files sizes above).
Installing the program in Windows systems
Using Windows Explorer select the previously chosen directory.
If the file is a zip package (.ZIP), uncompress it to a temporary folder and launch the install file.
If the file is an auto-expanding executable (.EXE), launch the program.
Follow the instructions.
If the downloaded file is corrupted...
If the internet connection has been terminated before the end of the download (size does not match) or if the download procedure returned damaged data (it may happen during a connection) then the install procedure will fail returning an error message.
Delete the downloaded file from your hard drive. Then try to download the file from the same source.
If it fails again, try another source.
If you still have problems, try to download the ZIP version (last choice in list). If you can unpack the ZIP file without problem, it means that the install file is correct.
Magic Mouse software products are designed to run without any installation program. This allows a very valuable feature, which only the most carefully developed software can offer, which is to be able to run from removable media such as CD-ROM. This allows you to carry your software to other computers and run different computers conveniently.
Since our software doesn't install files in your system folder or modify your system in any way, you need only delete the files on your hard drive to remove our software.
If you order the full CD-ROM editions of our products, be sure to remove the demo versions.
