I have Win ME, and used the Help Section in Winzip, and this egg worked perfectly fine. All you need is a Help File that is similar in format, to that of the Windows 95 Help, and this egg should work.

This works with anything that resembles the Windows95 Help File. Since my Windows95 Help's (Start > Help) tag doesn't work, I had to use WinZip's help file. I'm sure it works with all others.

I have win98se so the windows help file is different. I used winzip 8.0's help file though and it worked for me too.

Don't know what you're thinking, but it worked fine on my win 95 computer. And, how are the instructions hard to understand. Can't get much clearer than that. By the way, what shadow?

False, blue_sunday, I copied and pasted right from the directions. Make sure you don't paste the extra space at the end, though. Directions were easy once I read them carefully.

Works fine. I followed the directions and used copy/paste and the product development team came up. Any help file at all works, win zip I used, since my find tab doesn't work in the windows help file. Just follow the directions more carefully if it isn't working. I know how you feel. I've tried 6 eggs now, and only two have worked, but this one WORKS!

I have Windows XP Professional, and it doesn't worked. I tried with the Winzip 8.1 and mIRC 6.1 Help Wizards. What happens?

This egg does not work on my computer, and you should make the instructions easier to read.
