Volkswriter 1.2

Volkswriter, from Lifetree Software Inc, was an early easy to use word processor for the IBM PC. Development of Volkswriter was inspired by the horridness of EasyWriter, and for a brief time it was possibly the only usable word processor for the IBM PC before an IBM version of WordStar was released. The "Deluxe" version will work with larger documents and has more features.


Release notes

The Volkswriter 1.2 package shipped with the "64K" version, which has separate Editor and Printer modes. They would mail you the 128k version when you sent in your registration card. The 128k version combines these. The 128k version will still run on a 64k system, but has much less memory available to hold documents.

Installation instructions

This version is for IBM PC computers with 64K of RAM. This version is compatible with IBM PC-DOS 1.0 and IBM PC-DOS 1.1.
