Crossword Wizard V4

Problem: Windows Version Only - Printing


When I try print a puzzle the output is of poor quality. Wordlists have the first letter missing and the border overlaps the puzzle.


Solution: Check that the version you are using is V4.0.1 or above. If it isn't, download the free upgrade. Also make sure that the 4 margins are set to zero (0) when the Page Setup appears.

Problem: Windows Version Only - Playing Crosswords


When I try to play a puzzle in the Crossword Wizard Creator the menu is disabled.


Solution: Download the Free upgrade to Version 4.0.1 or above

Problem: Windows Version Only - Importing Old Files


When I try to import Version 3 Crossword Wizard files the files don't appear in the load dialog or don't appear after loading.


Solution: Download the Free upgrade to Version 4.0.2 Creator

Problem: Incorrect Scoring in Player
  When getting the score for a puzzle it gives an inaccurate mark if I save and then reload the puzzle or if I use the delete key to make a correction to the word
  Solution: Download the Free upgrade to Version 4.0.2 Player
Problem: I am having trouble Networking Version 4 on Windows, every user has to enter the registration code. Is there asimpler way?

Solution: Putting the cwwprefs file which is created when you register into the users profile works and saves every user having to register. For example with XP the path might be

Server - \\Servername\Profiles\username\Application Data OR
Locally - C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data
