Special Instructions for Installing Word of the Hour on Windows XP...

Word of the Hour Beta 3.0 is not designed to run on the windows 2000 code stream, which means it will not perform properly under Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

Windows XP does however have a new feature called Version compatibility, which allows it to run programs designed for older Windows operating systems such as Windows 95, 98 etc.  Word of the Hour works fine if the program is set up to run in compatibility mode.  The following instructions show you how to change Word of the Hour to work in "Compatibility Mode".

Running Word of the Hour in compatibility mode....
