To all the naysayers, I uninstalled X3, reinstalled, rebooted, let the update that appeared on my computer install, rebooted again, and X3 now works on Windows 7, 32 bit, Home Premium!
The main reason I like WP is that I have used it since before MS Works was even a cointender in the Office enviornment.
Thank you for your information... I love WordPerfect--have used other programs, but they don't compare! I never want to switch. I wanted to know if I could install WP X3 on my new laptop, and your answer was best. Thank you!
