Word 6.0 support in XP Wordpad

By jdoffing ·
Since Wordpad in XP no longer supports saving files in Word 6.0 format, I have copied Wordpad from ME to a seperate directory and renamed it. So far I only tried this in Home version. Do you think this will cause problems down the line. - Jim D.

I can't think of any immediate problems. File associations (Word vs. WordPad)? I assume that RTF formatting won't work in your situation.

I would suggest that you purchase Word, since who knows if MS will make the wordpad from ME uncompatible in an update of XP.
