CE Software Pilots QuicKeys for Windows Developer Program
Comprehensive resources, technical support help developers create custom automation solutions powered by QuicKeys technology

WEST DES MOINES, IA, April 26, 1999 -- CE Software, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of CE Software Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ SC Symbol: CESH), today announced the QuicKeys for Windows Developer Program. The new program assists third-party software developers to create custom automation solutions based on QuicKeys for Windows technology. Participants in the free program receive access to CE Software's technical support services and development resources, including a complete Software Development Kit (SDK), via a new area of CE Software's Web site for developers (http://www.cesoft.com/cedn/).

"A wide range of automation solutions are possible with QuicKeys for Windows," said Christian F. Gurney, president and CEO of CE Software. "One company cannot possibly create all of these automation solutions on its own, so we are making comprehensive QuicKeys development tools available to the Windows developer community. CE Software is committed to providing superior service and resources to help developers make QuicKeys a very powerful, very specialized automation solution for their specific environments."

CE Software's online QuicKeys for Windows SDK grants developers access to the most up-to-date QuicKeys technologies, including a complete Application Programming Interface (API). In addition, CE Software's developer Web area hosts sample source code, documentation, plug-ins and an online developer forum for exchanging information about QuicKeys. Developers who create plug-ins for QuicKeys also receive discounts on volume purchases of the product.

Bill Pytlovany, an independent Windows software developer whose clients include Gateway, Disney and America Online, said: "I've always been a big fan of QuicKeys. And now, with a flexible API and developer support, there's nothing I can't automate by creating my own powerful QuicKeys plug-ins. CE Software has always been known for making computing easy, and they've done it yet again."
