This family of products and services is featured at an independent web site at currencysystem.com, operated by Cloanto's Currency System, Inc. spin-out.

Cloanto will work with you to create a fully customized calculator and/or currency conversion client, featuring the desired functionality and design. You can deploy the software on your intranet or offer it for public download, and use Currency Server to centrally manage the exchange rates you provide, as well as additional information which may be fed together with the exchange rate data (e.g. calculators offered for free download may display an information message, or a graphical banner).
These are the tools we created to better support our own software products. Spontaneous demand led to the development and release of successful stand-alone packages which are now used by thousands of other software and content publishers.
MenuBox combines full-fledged web browser functionality with an extended document object model and event intercepts to achieve special functionality for contexts such as AutoRun projects, wrapping of web-based services, chromeless applications and kiosk mode operation. Branded by our clients, MenuBox is widely used on AutoRun media by well-known software publishers and in corporate, government and education environments alike.
Software Director is an advanced content management and delivery system specializing in software and related events (e.g. news, download, try, buy, upgrade, up-sell, cross-sell, etc.) This redistributable component was designed with a priority on simplicity, privacy, security and support for multiple independent publishers. Already deployed and tested by Cloanto in its entire product line, it is being launched as an independent product.

These are the dreams of our youth and a sign of our passion for excellence and commitment to long-term support. The technology site is at www.retroplatform.com, while the product-related content is available on www.amigaforever.com and www.c64forever.com (independent web sites operated by our sister company Cloanto Italia srl). The copyrights for Commodore/Amiga works (software, ROMs, manuals, videos, etc.) are owned by Cloanto Corporation.
Building on more than 10 years of experience with Amiga Forever (version 1.0 was released in 1997), the Amiga Forever team started in 2007 to lay down the foundation for a modular and platform-neutral "RetroPlatform" architecture. RetroPlatform includes a skinnable player that can use multiple emulation engines, and the infrastructure to catalog, sell, buy, download, play and organize thousands of games, including both free and commercial titles, and non-game content. Products based on this technology include Amiga Forever and C64 Forever.
Amiga Forever is the official Amiga preservation, emulation and support package which allows Amiga software to run on non-Amiga hardware legally and without complex configuration. All versions of Amiga Forever include everything you need to run different "Classic" Amiga emulation and OS environments in simple one-click steps. This makes it possible to run thousands of Amiga games and demoscene productions which are available for free download from software publishers and Amiga history sites alike.
Connect an Amiga with one or more PCs, and access Amiga resources (including virtual floppy, hard disk and ROM image files) from the Windows Desktop. Now with a revolutionary self-install technology that requires no additional Amiga software (PC file system, terminal software, etc.) Supports serial and TCP/IP connections. Available in a stand-alone package or as part of Amiga Forever.
C64 Forever employs the same RetroPlatform infrastructure and player used by Amiga Forever, revealing a powerful end-to-end content management ecosystem already supporting more than 20,000 games.
