Hi Jeff,
Don't know what version Windows you are using, I assume 3.1 or 3.11.
You might consider Windows NT 4.0 with VEE 3.21.  I also do a call to
Notepad from within VEE. The notepad program for NT has been improved
from earlier versions. For example, no file size limits, it loads big
files MUCH faster, *AND* it remembers the settings you selected
(including word wrap).

Windows NT workstation may not be the best solution for every
situation, but it works flawlessly for me on an HP Vectra 90 MHz
Pentium with 32M of ram.
