Oh no, I have the 64-bit version
« on: April 14, 2015, 04:52:27 AM »
Well, I just found out I have the 64-bit version of Word 2010.  Word 2010 can't be purchased anymore, and many people dislike 2013 (I have it - yuk, want to stay with my 2010).  I guess I'm doomed?...is there any hope of compatibility in the future?

Hello Val,

You can uninstall the 64-bit version ad replace it with the 32-bit version using the original installation DVD. The DVD contains both editions. There are many reasons for not using the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office, not limited to the WordStar Emulator!

If I can modify the program to support both Word 32- and 64-bit I will announce that in the news section and on the main Web site.

Thanks, Mike.  I didn't know that!  OK then, I'll get someone to help me with that.  (Looking forward to it.)  I think your program would be really beneficial to to those doing medical transcription, as its' paid by the line.
