Some programs start Notepad when displaying text files,
without giving you an option to select another text editor.
For example, Internet Explorer starts Notepad when you select
View Source. If you want to use Texturizer in cases where a
program starts Notepad, you will have to replace Notepad.
Please visit http://www.texturizer.net for instructions on how to
do this. There you will be able to download a small program that
will make sure Texturizer is started whenever a program tries to
Although I hope you will never find a reason for it, uninstalling
Texturizer is easy. Simply select Add or Remove Programs in the
Control Panel, select Texturizer in the list of installed
applications and press Change/Remove.
Note that the uninstaller will not remove any additional file
associations made from within the Associate tab in the Options
window. It will only remove the file associations made during
1.) In order to work properly on Windows XP, Service Pack 1 or later
must be installed. This is because of a bug in riched20.dll (Q320368),
provided by Microsoft. Please notice that this is not a bug in
2.) Certain printer specific options, such as double sided printing,
do not work in Texturizer. Also, Texturizer will always print
using the default printer installed, regardless of which printer
you specify. Hopefully, these issues will be fixed in a future
3.) When using Drag-and-Drop from WinZip 7.0 or 8.0 to Texturizer,
a small icon will be inserted into the text instead of the file
being opened. This seems to be the only program that acts this way.
I will eventually try to contact the people at WinZip to see if
there is a solution to this problem. Until then, drag the file(s)
to the window title of Texturizer instead of the actual text in the
4.) If you are using LiteStep, Texturizer will not be displayed in
the LiteStep task bar. This problem applies to all Visual Basic
programs and is nothing I can do about. The developers of LiteStep
say that VB programs differ from other programs in the way they are
placed on the Explorer task bar. This is a problem or bug in
LiteStep, not in Texturizer. However, you will still be able to
access Texturizer from the system tray.
This program is licensed as shareware, which means that you may
evaluate it for free during a 30-day trial period. After that,
you must register Texturizer if you want to continue using it.

Texturizer needs Internet Explorer 4.0 (or a newer version) in order
to work properly. Most systems already have this version installed,
but old Windows 95 systems may not. The latest version of Internet
Explorer can be downloaded from the following location:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads. The reason why
Texturizer needs this program is because it updates many required
system files that are not included in the Texturizer installation.
Texturizer also needs the system files MSVBVM60.DLL, RICHTX32.OCX,
COMCT332.OCX, COMCTL32.OCX and MSCOMCTL.OCX in order to run. These
files are included in the installation, but if you got this software
without them, you should be able to locate them in an FTP search
engine, such as http://ftpsearch.ntnu.no.
In order to use the built-in support for AutoSpell spell checking,
you need to download AutoSpell from http://www.spellchecker.com. Any
personal version of AutoSpell will work with Texturizer.
