I have installed the Windows release of abiWord v1.99.6 under ODIN in an OS/2
v4/52 partition of a desktop machine. (ODIN is a simulated Win32 environment
which runs under OS/2). Friends have informed me that they have done this
successfully. which is why I chose abiWord for my own needs. I myself have
another Win32 application installed in the same way, and it works properly.
abiWord did install without complaint, once I gave it the MSVCRT.DLL file that
it complained it couldn't find. I accepted the default choice of installation
directory, so that its directory structure is under the "C:\Program files"
directory pre-existing in ODIN.
When I run it, it loads and is displayed *almost* completely correctly. What is
missing is that the Font-choice window is empty, and that typing into the main
text window produces no result at all.
There is another problem in connection with the Preferences notebook: This
window opens, and I can set various options in it, although some options are,
strangely greyed out. The real problem is that, once opened, the notebook
cannot be closed, except by rebooting.
What is clear is that the underlying problem can't be dismissed as
incompatibility of abiWord with the ODIN-OS/2 combination, since this
installation has been accomplished by others. What I am asking, therefore, is
comments on what the two visible problems described above suggest in the way of
