    I had a path to a cortana file/folder left in windows.old. The path is zero bytes and when I try and delete it, the OS says it is not there!

    You're welcome, one just needs to be very care of the folder, and there can be a problem when the folder does not have an 8.3 file/folder name(the one with the tilde), I have that problem now.

    Updated ok. Disk cleanup got rid or the windows.old folder but left windows.old(1). Ran RD /S /Q %SystemDrive%\windows.old(1) ​in CMD Admin and that worked.

    Dug out an ancient CD... while confusingly trying to throw out the flotsam I've accrued over the years, and not one to waste anything, came across Works v9. It actually works on 17040

    Perfect for someone who just wants a simple word processor.
    Post a Works Word sheet here, I'll see if it'll open in Office Starter!

    Wow. A blast from the past. I remember having that on 98 before I bought O2000 Pro. Can't believe it runs on 17040. Did you have to use compatibility to get it to run?
