  1. Problem with old programme


    I have been using the basic text programme Write ever since the early MS OS. It has survived through 1, 3, 4, 95, 98, 98SE, XP, 7, and up to now, 10. But when I tried to use it a few days ago, I got a notice that the "App" cannot be used on your PC. NEVER done that before.

    Going back to any of those OS before Win 10 it still works. I have checked everything I can think of and even reloaded the application, but it still smugly informs me that it can't be used! Crazy, as it is such a basic programme!

    When upgrading from 7 to 10 I carried the programme and all the files over using the folder Write. I have now tried putting the write.exe file into the folder Programmes (X86) and ensuring that I have set the compatibility setting to XP and Run as Admin.

    No good - so any other ideas?
    (yes, I know it is dreadfully old fashioned but I have many .wri files which are simple and reliable. They do NOT transfer well to Notepad, Wordpad or Word.)

    Please ignore this request for help. I have just cured the problem by re installing some elements from the original programme disc which I have finally located..

    I feel a bit stupid as a result.
