Latina - http://www.ucc.uconn.edu/~hasenfra/wlatin.html
"Lingua Latina is a free program which drills users on the basics of Latin
grammar. It requires Windows 3.1 or higher.... Lingua Latina, at its best,
helps users memorize the key forms and endings, but it would be very difficult
to learn Latin with this program alone. You'd know lots of endings, but
very little about what they do. Thus, I'd suggest using the program along
with a good introductory grammar book."
