Windows Vista issues: The program has been tested and runs properly on Windows Vista. However, there are two issues:
installer above may not succeed in creating a working program (even though it
finishes installing without reporting a problem). I am not sure what the
problem is, but I have
found a workaround. You should uninstall the (broken) copy of FAWAVE (and, you might also want to check that the files ppro100.ocx, ppro100.dll, and pptif100.dll are removed from
the Windows/System folder -- those are the offending files reported by FAWAVE when it fails to run). After that, you should run the following installer:
Download Fawave (Version 2.0, Vista patch)
This installer is kind of clunky, but has been
reported to install a properly working FAWAVE program on Vista, when the above
installer has failed. [The first installer has had no
reported problems on any pre-Vista Windows system, and operates more smoothly, so I have made it the default installer.]
Vista no longer ships with WinHelp32.exe which is needed to
view the online help. If you can't view the online help, then you
need to go to the Microsoft website (http://www.microsoft.com/)
and search for WinHelp32.exe to bring up the download page for
installing WinHelp32.exe on Windows Vista machines.
Once you have installed WinHelp32.exe then Fawave's online
help will be accessible. Please note: (1) a
comprehensive User's Manual is installed in the Help subfolder of the Fawave
folder during installation, and that PDF file is readable and printable with the
free program Adobe Acrobat Reader; (2) this
online help issue applies only to Windows Vista (earlier versions of Windows
allow the online help upon installation of Fawave).
