Re: Grid of editboxes using Windows API

There are Hackintosh versions out there. I've never had a successful result. Probably best to find someone who has a MAC and is willing to let you compile on it.

Re: Windows.bi

I'm using Windows 8.1 64bit. I did a search both digitally and manually and no sign of windows.bi.

I've downloaded the up-to-date inc folder and there it is, windows.bi.

How can I get it, or have I just to reinstall and see if it arrives this time.
