+++ 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 Vista, 7, 8, 10:

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
