  • Can you make CREAM work for vim74 ? I modified the batch files for install and run, but it still comes up with error messages upon startup of Cream in the new vim74 subfolder.

  • This office suite is designed for both the amateur and the professional. Work with some programs a pleasure. Others make a little work. Nevertheless, I was happy with everything
