    "However, please note that CWordPad does not support Word 97 or later documents.) PLEASE NOTE: THIS FREEWARE PROGRAM IS NO LONGER BEING FORMALLY DISTRIBUTED, AND NO SUPPORT FOR IT WILL BE PROVIDED"

    Yep, that's a program I'd certainly be wanting to download and install on my Vista system ........................N O T !!!!

    WordPad Replacement

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Leif on 28-Mar-08 07:27. To add the missing W in the Subject which the Wordpad spellchecker obviously missed...)</P>This was "gone" for the lobgest time, but, for some reason, they've "unlocked it.

    If you use WordPad at all, thisa is a MUST!

    If you want a replacement for WordPad, I think a better alternative is Jarte - Free Word Processor Based on Microsoft's WordPad Engine

    Aaah, the source of many (most?) problems: old software.

    I agree with you John; I don't have Vista, but I wouldn't install it on my XP either. Maybe could be useful on my old 486 with Win95 ... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    When I got WinXP back in 2002 I draw a line there; using programs developed for, tested on, supported for XP. Same as when moved from Win3.11 to Win95 etc. Then of course similarities between Win2000 and XP did that a lot of Win2000 programs worked perfectly, Office etc. And also MSFT is known for doing a lot for backward compatibility. Still, in the case of a minor program, a text editor which we can find "thirteen per dozen", I would look for alternatives.

    As Tony showed; if one look around a bit, one can most of the time find a suitable replacement, if the previously used software is not developed further.
