System updates required for EclipseCrossword

The software on this website requires certain system updates (Windows Installer 1.1, Visual Basic 6.0 SP5 runtime) to function properly.  Almost all computers already have them.  If you don't, you can download the necessary updates from Microsoft.

Step 1: downloading the necessary system updates

EclipseCrossword will run without any problems on any remotely recent PC.  If you have a very old computer, pre-2000, you might need to download and install one or two system updates before it will work.  First, find out what version of Windows you have, and then check the chart below.

Windows Installer update from Microsoft

Choose the version of the update that matches the version of Windows you have.

Visual Basic 6 Service Pack 5 runtime update from Microsoft

Choose the version of the update that matches the version of Windows you have.

Step 2: installing the system updates

Open any updates you downloaded above to install them.  (If you're asked, click Run or Open.)  Otherwise, find the files in the location where you saved them, and double-click on them to install the update.  If you're asked to restart your computer, you'll need to do that before you finish installing EclipseCrossword.  (You may want to bookmark this page so you can find it later.)

Step 3: installing EclipseCrossword

Now you can install EclipseCrossword normally.  Return to the main download page.
