LocoLink For Windows
If you are moving from any version of Locoscript
PC or PCW and need to use a Windows program such as Microsoft Word,
WordPerfect or Lotus then Locolink for Windows (LL4W) lets you convert
your Locoscript documents and datafiles so you can work with them in
other word processors or databases. LL4W is supplied as a Windows PC program which
will work with Locoscript PC and Professional documents already on PC
disc. LLFW works on single or multiple files - you can select a whole
folder or floppy disc at a time!
Note> The conversion of files is not always 100%
and you may have to carry out some re-editing with your Windows word
processor before printing the documents or passing them on to someone
else. LL4W does its best to retain styling and formatting so that bold
remains bold, italic, underline pagination etc
although some unique features such as special characters and LocoMail/LocoFile
routines, which have no simple equivalent in other programs, will be
Locolink will also convert LocoFile data into
industry standard format such as DBase IV, FoxPro for Windows or
ASCII(CSV), ready to import into modern databases such as Microsoft
Works, Access etc.
LL4W Requires a 32-bit
version of Windows, not directly compatible
with 64-bit versions.
that if you are running a 64-bit version
of Windows on your PC, you will probably need to run LLFW under one of the
compatibility modes. To do this, right click on the LLFW icon after
installation then select Properties
and Compatibility. Now choose an older version such as XP or 2000. Simply
tick the compatibility mode box and then OK. You may be asked to download a
file utility to make the conversion work and if so you should accept this.
When next you click on the LLFW Icon on the Windows Desktop, the program
should run as normal.
If you don't have a suitable computer to run LL4w
on, we can provide a LocoScript document data conversion service by post or
email at reasonable cost. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
