there was no "real" version 5.0 of wordperfect for amigaos, last version released for amiga was v4.1.12 in january 1991.
there was a version 5.0 in alpha testing, but this version was never released. see amigalove.com, there you find this:
I also take offense to it being called WordPerfect 5.0, when after extensive testing all Amiga files are saved using WordPerfect 4.2 format and the Amiga will not read 5.0 or 5.1 IBM files. How was this marketed? Was it a full release at over $100 or was it a partial update? Upon doing some heavy research I found a Columbia University archive listing the version history of WordPerfect. It notes 5.0 for the Amiga was an alpha test and never saw release. This is yet another example of the sorry state of our online Amiga collections. They rarely note important things like NTSC/PAL designs, or in this case, if something was an unreleased version. It should be noted that version 5.0 would most likely be an exact copy of the last official Amiga WordPerfect release, which was version 4.1.12 released in January of 1991.
