Online Help Issues on Windows Vista

Snippets Text Database runs great on the Vista Windows operating system. However, the portion of Windows used by this program to display online help is no longer included with Windows Vista. We are working to upgrade the help system but it will not be immediate.


In order to access help under Windows Vista with the existing software, you may download the help system used by this program from Microsoft at no charge. You will want to download Windows6.0-KB917607-x86.msu. The other version (Windows6.0-KB917607-x64.msu) is for 64-bit Windows.



Our Snippets Text Database is sold as shareware. Shareware can be evaluated for free and without risk. We strongly recommend that you first download the software and install it on your computer. Take it for a test drive and see if it performs to your satisfaction. If you like the software, you can register (purchase) it. When you do, we'll send you a registration key that you enter into the program to fully activate the software. Because the software will already be on your computer, this method is fast, easy, and avoids all shipping and media charges. And because you'll have already used the program, you'll know exactly what you're buying.
