What is Vanilla?

Vanilla is the ultimate list program, so that you can keep track of all the CD/DVD/Tape/Record and more, media that you own. It is designed to be very flexible, as you can add any kind of media (i.e., PC Games, Movies, Xbox games etc..). Vanilla also incorporates several useful and powerful functions, which are explained below:

Vanilla is written in C#, thus uses the .Net v2 framework. Vanilla is will work on every version of windows above Windows 98, as long as .NET Framework v2.0 is installed

Main Vanilla Interface

You can download Vanilla Here:

Vanilla.exe (393k)
(Version: )
Change Log
Sample_List.van (47k) (Right-Click and press Save-As)

You only need to download the .exe file.

The Sample List is provided so that you can try Vanilla without entering any data, so that you can use it to play and test Vanilla to see if it is right for you.

The Sample List is just a collection of randomly collected data of things that exist in the real world. This list does not imply anything.

 All the Walkthroughs use the Sample_File.van.
