Word's disappearance and unasked replacement by WordPad

1 New Member
Suddenly, Word has vanished and WordPad is here instead. When I clicked on a document, it said that WordPad did not support everything. I would like Word back as I do not think it should have been removed without my consent and I do not care for WordPad.

'Suddenly' you ask a question on a forum which has nothing to do with Microsoft or any of its products....

How should any reader her know WHY Word has vanished?

Maybe it's a new feature of Word?

Als you do not tell us which version of Windows you are using, and the version of Word is also missing. (not that this makes much difference to the posted question, but ...)

The only 'proper' answers I can give:
"I would like Word back"
please re-install

"I do not care for WordPad"
it's a free feature of Windows.

I'm trying to find a clean way to launch a Wordpad editor on Windows. By "clean", I mean that it should work on as many versions of Windows as possible, and it shouldn't require installing any extra software. I assume everyone has win32api and its friends. The problem is to find the path to wordpad.exe. At first I just copied the path from my XP machine: c:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\WORDPAD.EXE

Hey, there! I'm new to vb.net and it seems I wouldn't be able to solve this without help. I have a pipe delimited file that has to be saved in txt format so it could be accepted by my DTS package. If I open and save the file manualy in Wordpad - it works. (not in Notepad otherwise formatting is changed and DTS package won't accept it.)
