View Full Version : Word for Windows6.0 XP

I believe SP2 prevents the use of Word for Windows6.0. I had used a Registry change on my old laptop but I've forgotten the details. I can't find it by Googling, can anyone help?

Hi Marty

What are you trying to do, open files made with Word 6 or run the program on XP,
I had a similar issue with needing a light word processor for a laptop and XP and went with the free abiWord (http://www.abisource.com/) which is pretty similar feature wise, (also my word 6 diskettes were all faulty)

but anyway Word 6 was released before even windows 95 so i am suprised it even worked on XP but... have you tried running it in "compatibility mode" I think it is called
