LocoScript PC Products


LocoLink For Windows

 LOCOLINK FOR WINDOWS Download Version @ 19.95
(Sent via email, with help file but no manual included) 

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 lost.

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. 

*Note 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

Note. These specially discounted packages are sold on the basis that if LSPro cannot be made to run or print in any form on your PC then you are able to use LLFW to convert your existing documents instead. No refunds can be given on an opened software packet. Purchasers are deemed to accept these terms. An installation leaflet but no paper manuals are provided.

Requires a 32-bit version of Windows, not directly compatible with 64-bit versions. 

**Note that if you are running a 64-bit  version of Windows on your PC you will be unable to run LSPro directly. However, by downloading a DOS environment such as DosBox ( it is perfectly possible to run LSPro on such a machine. LSPro will run normally and it is possible to obtain a full-screen display giving you access to your LocoScript documents and files although you should bear in mind that no printing is possible from such a set up. You could however export any document in ASCII (plain text) format from within LSPro or convert single or multiple files into Word or RTF via LLFW  for printing from Windows. Please note that LocoScript is unable to give support on 3rd party software.
