The problem with using the Tandy WP2 DOS program, WP2DOS by Chris De Herrera with Windows NT, 2000 and XP is now in the past.

These cables are fully tested, and came about when many supporters of 8bit-Micro were having trouble transferring files to and from the
Tandy word processors and their Windows XP computers. One other problem discovered was that WP2DOS will not work under an NTFS

floppy drives fit the bill. If you are interested in using your favorite word processor with your Windows based computer you can obtain
