I'm in the same boat regarding Encore. The old versions will not work with

The fact that the only difference between the older versions of Encore and
the "new" XP version is a minor change was made to make it work is not worth
$129. I'm willing to pay a nominal fee for the minor coding to upgrade
Encore for XP but this is excessive.

I have Encore 4.1 on my old computer. I purchased a new  computer, windows
XP and the soft ware I have for encore is windows 95, XP will not accept it.
My search for information has been to no avail.  I can not find Encore
