for use on any OS. It was buggy, and incompatibilies developed
with the release of Mac OS 8 and 9.
A patch was released in 1998 to fix the bugs.
A further updater was released in 2000 to fix the OS
incompatibilities, slow the scrolling speed and improve
display. An outlining fix was included to remedy the free
download's incorrect installation of that module.
So . . .
If you install WP 3.5e from the CD, you need to run the
1998 patch and 2000 updater. Outlining fix not required.
If you install WP 3.5e from the free download, you need to
run the 2000 updater and outlining fix.
So you have two steps in any case.
There's no advantage to installing the program from the CD
when the free download is available (at sites listed in the
Links section here).
The CD does have other stuff, such an auxiliary program to
create flowcharts from outlines, plus a ton of fonts, clip
art, templates, HTML utilities and macros.
It also has dictionary/thesaurus files and conversion
filters, which are available in the Files section here.
