It is Win ME that cause an error
How can I make sure that RichEdit installed?
The Edit control is actually created but doesn't show output

EM_SETTEXTEX   message is only applicable for Richedit 3.0 or higher - so to know the version on ur computer
Open richedit.h file in an editor -  It will be showing the number for richedit control version no.

1. %SYSTEM% folder ( Ex: C:\Windows\System32), search riched20.dll;
version of a binary file: 'Properties' in windows explorer, the version tab; my riched20.dll: "Description:   Rich Text Edit Control, v3.0"

2. WinME has "riched20.dll" installed natively; I reallly think you have other problem (but verify that the richedit20.dll is there): WinME is multi-byte, XP is Unicode (NT-based); please give more informations: ( some code eventually)
