    Funny how this thing pops up every 1½ years or so 🙂

    Someone asked me about wordbuilder, and I managed to pull myself together and compile a version that runs on my windows 10 machine. It’s been compiled for .NET framework 4.5 and should be ok to go with the latest mono too.

    I’ve included the gtk dlls, so it should run without having that preinstalled, but I haven’t tested it. Let me know how it works out.

  1. I love you

  2. I still love you, but I can’t get it to work. It simply doesn’t open.

    I tried:

    – Running normally
    – Running as admin
    – Running in compatibility mode
    – Installing latest Mono and GTK#
    – Installing Mono 4.6 (the one available when you posted this) and GTK#

  3. And pardon for the spam, but it appears that I had to open it through the Mono command prompt otherwise it doesn’t work (I guess adding mono to my PATH is also an option)

  4. Thanks for the input – does that mean you got it working finally?

    Any suggestions for changes are welcome – it’s not a highly prioritized project for me, but on the other hand, I’m not doing much of anything else these days.

  5. Yeah, got it to work, thanks.

    As for suggestions, I guess it’d be nice to have the rules in a monospaced font instead of a proportional one, but that’s about it.
