Updates to David Taylor's Software - 2017
This page lists the changes made to my applications during 2017. You can register free of charge to

Taylor's Software self-help group.
Just as Microsoft has dropped support
for Windows XP, my software is no longer tested or
supported in any version of Windows prior to Windows-7. Both 32-bit and
64-bit versions of Windows are usually supported, and some programs can take
advantage of the larger memory space available with 64-bit Windows.
My programs may continue to work in those earlier versions, but this is
neither guaranteed nor supported. Please update from XP or Vista now.
