    Does anyone have MailMerge and SpellStar for WordStar 7.0D? Maybe it's there, please advise!
  • It's there, got WordStar 7.0D working on Windows 10 Pro x64. Thanks for the links, my installation diskettes are corrupt, glad to find this! Have used WordStar since the CP/M days, and ecstatic to get it back running!
