Currently (February, 1992), Claris cannot provide replacement disks for the following early versions of MacWrite, MacPaint, or MacDraw:

MacWrite: Any version prior to 5.0.1
MacPaint: Any version prior to 2.0
MacDraw: Any version prior to 1.9.8

People who have older Macintosh computers and/or prefer not to upgrade their software can contact a local users group for replacement disks for some of these versions. To find a local user group, call Apple's User Group Connection at 800-538-9696.

Another source for older software versions is B&R Computer Services. They also buy, sell, support, and repair older Apple and Macintosh computers and software.
