    "Impossible to Install"

    March 31, 2013  |   By NYDExx


    Who knows??


    The executable file does not auto-run. Windows 7 asks for me to "Choose a program to open the file" with.
    Downloaded several times, unzipped. It appears the .exe is erroneously namede exe.config which baffles Windows.


    Might be good but who knows??

    Hi, it is a little confusing. But what you do is open the folder when prompted at the end of cnet's installation > click on writemonkey 'file folder' and scroll down until you see a symbol which is circular and blue with a white 'm' in the middle and that will be the writemonkey 'application' > right click it and > send to desktop > and you can directly use it from there. Also you can right click > pin to task bar and/or pin to start menu. And then you will have easy access to it. The program works fine from any of these destinations. You could also send it to a USB stick if you wish it to be portable. I really hope that this run through helps you :) I'm not the best at giving them so I hope it works for you. It's a great program :)
