The Tectra Archives
Welcome to the Tectra Archives. This page contains programs that have been discontinued. To preserve the history of Tectra, you'll be able to download most of Tectra's abandoned projects here.
Tectra Sidebar v1.4
This was a simple sidebar program that I wrote a while ago. I updated a few times, but ultimately, it never really became a major project. It was a bit too slow and clunky to really be useful, and it just didn't make a whole lot of sense when things like the Windows Action Center existed. It was officially killed off on August 9, 2020.
Tectra Auto Clicker v1.2
The Tectra Auto Clicker was a simple auto clicker program for Windows. It was released in early 2019. However, it was only updated 3 times throughout its life. It was retired on March 22, 2020.
Eclipse Web Browser v1.3.1
Eclipse was a web browser developed by Tectra Systems. It was released in the Summer of 2018 to mediocre reception. It was criticized for being based on Internet Explorer. However, being based on Internet Explorer made Eclipse a handy tool for loading legacy websites that did not support modern browsers.
The version of Eclipse available for download on the archive is version 1.3.1. This release never saw the light of day because the project was discontinued before its release.
Tectra Business Suite 2018
The Tectra Business Suite was a productivity program with a built in calendar, media player, word processor, calculator, and web browser. The Business Suite was never updated, and had a number of bugs as a result. Still, it would later inspire me to create Tectra Writer, so I'm glad it existed.
Ember Defender v1.4
Ember Defender was an "antivirus" program that I wrote when I was in 6th grade. The problem was that it didn't do its job particularly well. In fact, it was more a PC cleanup utility than an antivirus. That being said, I was still very new to programming at the time, and I learned a lot while writing Ember Defender. For that reason, I am glad I wrote it, even if it hasn't aged particularly well.
This is where it all started. The first Tectra program. Sure, it wasn't great, and yeah, the code behind it is painful to look at, but it was the beginning of something awesome.
