Running Wordstar for Windows 2.0 Maillist in XP

  PeterAnsell 17:37 18 Aug 2005

For many years I have used Wordstar's Maillist and it has worked with Windows 3.1, Windows 95 and 98. However in Windows XP on opening Maillist I get the message 'Cannot find WSW3D.dll' and then 'Unable to find WSW3D.dll' Maillist then opens in an outline fowmat which can be used in the normal way apart from printing when the program locks up. The file WSW3d.dll is where is should be in the WSWin folder.
Can anybody help please?

Have you tried running it in the various compatability modes - see WinXP help for how to.

Place the DLL's in the Program Folder where the Program .EXE is, that start WordStar

Many thanks for these comments. The dll files are with the exe files in WSWin folder. I have experimented with running in Win 95 and Win 98 modes and now get Maillist up on the screen with no message re missing dll files. However on asking to print preview or print without preview a new screen opens - Ca-ret with the option of opening a selection of .ret files which seem to relate to earlier printings which sometimes I can print but more often than not the program freezes up and I have to shut the programs Maillist and Ca-ret in Task Manager. Any more suggestions please?
