I'm aware it been an extremely long time since this thread died but I am out here in search of a copy of JCOVE lite as its feels almost extinct it would be nice to preserver this software for the future i am aware of this site http://www.ghostrecon.net/forums/index.php?/topic/60940-vbs-2-jcove-and-us-army-lite-downloads/ but its files for JCOVE are corrupt.

Do you think you can upload it to a file service or something as I cant seem to get it to work properly?

I am in the progress of putting a Freedom of information request into the MOD to try and obtain a copy of the software hopefully they will give me it

Did you get any results with that plan?

 

I was meant to receive a reply yesterday so I sent a followup and they have been slightly delayed due to COVID so I don't know when I'm going to find out if they'll give me it but ill post a reply here for whatever I find out

Update.

So a few days ago i was contacted by a user on BI Forums that has a copy of JCOVE am at this time just testing it to ensure it works fine if I don't receive a copy of JCOVE From my freedom of information request I will start to distribute this version I have been sent so the outlook is good.

 

P.S - I also intend to create a master version that contains content from both JCOVE and the US equivalent to create a seamless experience

So update 2 today I received a reply from my freedom of information request and it has sadly been refused below I've included a copy of what they said

Quote

I am treating your correspondence as a request for information under the Freedom of Information 
Act 2000.  Please accept our apologies for the delay in responding to your request. 
 
A search for the information has now been completed within the Ministry of Defence (MOD), and I 
can confirm that whilst some information in scope of your request is held we are not able to provide 
a copy of the requested software. 
 
Under Section 16 (Advice and Guidance) I can confirm that can VBS 2 Lite was custom build for 
Army Recruitment and made available around 10 years ago but was eventually withdrawn from 
Army use.  
 
Open source search engine results indicate that copies of VBS 2 lite could be available for free 
download to the general public. Additionally, the Arma series of video games utilise the full VBS 
engine which are available for public purchase. 

 

 This therefore means I'm going to publish the version sent to be by a bi community member and I'll also upload the us equivalent at the moment I'm probably going to upload it to web archive for other people to use this will be in a .iso format most likely.
