SignWriting List
May 1st, 2010

Hello Jonathan and Everyone -

Happy May 1st!

And this is indeed a happy day to see the progress you are making with developing SignWriter Studio. Thank you for your hard work and for giving SignWriting users another program to use. I look forward to testing it myself, later this weekend, but I only have a Windows XP computer, so others will need to test it in the other operating systems for there someone who can test it in Vista and Windows 7?

I am happy to know you have added the instruction you mention and a sample dictionary - that is good news -

Thanks Jonathan!

Val ;-)

So far I have tested under XP but still need for it to be tested under Vista and Windows 7.  The changes I made should make it possible to run the program as a non administrator on Vista and Windows 7 too.  I am looking forward to your feedback either whether it is positive or whether you detect a problem.
