This application allows you to create and modify D64 disk images (for the Commodore 1541 floppy drive).

For instructions to build this yourself on your system, see BUILDING.md.

For downloads of the latest binaries for Windows or Linux, search CSDb for “v1541commander”.

The Windows binary download comes with a little setup.exe that can be used to associate V1541Commander with the file types it can open, and where you can select, for which file types V1541Commander should become the default application. To remove them again, an uninstall.exe tool is also included.

The Linux binary download includes a setup.sh for installing icons and filetype associations, and an uninstall.sh for removing them again. For Linux, it’s recommended to build from source instead, or look out for a package offered for your distribution. If there is none, create one 😉
