    MSGTAG Status: Compatibility Mode under Win10?

    Hi, all:

    Shot in the dark here re: a relatively ancient, legacy software application -- MSGTAG Status.

    Is there anyone using it under Win10?
    If so, is it necessary or advisable to run it in Compatibility mode, e.g. as a Win7 application?

    Although the program is no longer being developed, it works perfectly well under Win7.
    I do not get notifications from *all* recipient email clients. But, when I do, I get 3 types of notifications.
    Under Win10, I receive ONLY email notifications, not popups or updates to the MSGTAG "grid".

    The program is tightly integrated with both my email client (Thunderbird) and my spam-filtering/mail-sorting program (Mailwasher Pro). So it would be a minor PITB to ditch it, although I suspect that its usefulness may be coming to an end.

    If anyone happens to use MSGTAG Status, I would appreciate advice about restoring it to full function under Win10.

    Were you ever able to do any good using MSGTAG with Windows 10? or get any support?
    I can't get it to tag. I moved from XP and OE which still works on my old computer.
