Reinstall Wordpad

Last response: in Windows XP

Wordpad spontaneously disappeared from my XP pro computer. I've run a repair on the installation - didn't work. I first tried to get it back via the control panel > install software > windows components. Not there. I've tried going to wordpad.ini in C: Windows inf folder and right clicked on the wordpad.ini files and chose install. Nothing has worked.

If you do a search for wordpad.exe, include all hidden directories, does it show up?

Is the shortcut there but does nothing, or is the shortcut to start it from the programs menu missing? Did you check the recycle bin?

Have a look in c:\ windows\system32\ for the file write.exe if the file is there and it opens wordpad, make a shortcut and put it where you want
