Re: Can I install Xywrite



Hi:
  I also have been running XYWIN under both win95 and win98 without any
problems.  Instead of "installing", I just copied the directory/folder
completely from one OS to the Other, then created a shortcut Icon onto
the desktop for the EXE.  Works fine.
  I have heard many questionable stories about XP, so I don't plan on
using it for some time.  As a result, I can't comment on XY or NB under
XP.
