Re: Can I install Xywrite

Using a floppy to transfer the XY directory from my Windows 3.1 machine is
how I "installed" XyWrite 3+ onto my NT 4.0 desktop and, more recently,
onto my Win2K laptop. I haven't noticed any problems to date. But of course
this is the DOS version of XyWrite.

P.S. Since I'm neurologically programmed to use XyWrite commands with
Northgate's keyboard layout (function keys at the left side instead of
along the top), I plug in my OmniKey when working in XyWrite on these newer
machines. The time saved is well worth the Rube Goldberg configuration.
