    1. How do I patch Paradox 11 for Vista?
    Howdy y'all, I was using Pdox on an XP Pro laptop to support infrequent maintenance of a Pdox/DOS app. The disk failed with no image backup. Now using this Toshiba laptop running Vista Ultimate SP2 x86 with all patches. This copy of Pdox 11 came from the WP Office 11 CD. I have the product key. I had downloaded and installed SP2 and SP3 patches for Pdox 11 and now have on this machine. I read in Mr. Prestwood's article about Vista that Corel had released an Installer patch that results in an instance. This instance is working correctly except for the APPCRASH event that occurs in pdxwin32.exe when I exit the program. Does the 411 point release fix the APPCRASH bug? So what's the path to an instance from my WPO 11 Pro CD? Thanks kindly. P.S. Don't really wanna consider upgrading to Win 7 x86 unless absolutely necessary.

    Definitely not low stress. Also, no matter what the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicted back in 2008, the tech writing field is not growing. Salaries have dropped dramatically since 2008, and tech writer positions are scarce, largely due to outsourcing and cost-cutting in general. Tech writers are considered expendable and are the last to be hired and the first to be let go. Please do not encourage anyone to go into this declining field. --- Jane Doe

    I had a real good experience with the Prestwood IT team when I converted my workstations from XP to Win7. I was getting .net directory errors. Their pricing was very fair and, in my case, I had no problem paying to get the problem resolved because I was wasting way too much time trying to fix it on my own. Good luck with whichever route take on this! JB
