Installation using Windows' "Extract" function
If you use Windows' built-in "Extract" function to unpack the downloaded ZIP file, first "unblock" the ZIP file (right mouse click, Properties / General tab, bottom). Otherwise, all files will be blocked by windows for security reasons, which may cause problems when opening the files.
No problems when using other ZIP tools.

Windows Installation folder:
Please install in a folder OUTSIDE "Program Files"
This portable program writes data to the program folder by default(*), however, this is not allowed within the "Program Files" structure. In this case Windows would redirect the data files of to a "VirtualStore" folder (under "Users"), however only for the 32 bit version of MemPad, not for 64 bit!
(*) It is also possible to use a data folder of your choice (see help for more information).

MemPad quick test:
For a quick test of MemPad's features drag and drop the "" file onto the MemPad.exe file. Read the Program/Installation section to get started.

Note: The files from the "Example" subdirectory are required to test some advanced features in the help file. Please copy these files to the main directory.

Embedded links with East-Asian characters:
Links must be enclosed in <angle brackets> in order to be properly underlined and executed.
See help: Editing/Links

Software Update:
Unzip the downloaded file into your existing folder. Your data will remain untouched.
