I have a problem in that I have no flasing cursor in Word 6. Everything else seems to work fine, but it is very annoying not being able to see where you are in a document.

I have checked all the settings and cannot see anything obvious, even re-installed it but to no affect.
Can anyone help ?

Skip,
I tried what you suggested, but it did not work.

You are definitely on the right track, the machine is dual boot and the Word 6 works fine in the Windows NT boot, but has the missing cursor in the Win 3.1 boot.
I suspect it is one of the windows settings.
Snicoll72,

Although I neglected to mention it in my previous comment, I assume you added the "maxBPs=768" entry on its own line with no spaces?    hmmmmm......I'll keep trying.
