Is anyone else trying to use IVEX WinBoard for XP?

I am a registered WinBoard user and have been using WinBoard v2.25 with
Windows 2000 for some time.
I just moved to XP and want to use WinBoard there; however, WinBoard 2.25
does NOT open in Windows XP
so I was forced to move up to version 2.27X. Now WinBoard opens and runs
but there is a VERY annoying bug.
The opening logo screen is ALWAYS on the screen (behind the WinBoard active
window) and remains on the screen
even when WinBoard is minimized. It covers up all icons on the desktop
unless I press the "show desktop" Icon.
This is very annoying bug. Anyone know of a fix?

My experience with IVEX WinDraft and WinBoard is that they were full of
many annoying bugs as sell as serious and fatal bugs. Furthermore these
bugs were never fixed in "updated" versions, which came out quite
infrequently. The only real fix for IVEX software is to uninstall it. I
am so glad they finally went out of business.

Try setting Windows 98 compatibility.

For Windows XP you will need version 2.26a. I had the same problem. When I
told IVEX about the situation they promptly sent me version 2.26a.

Would you be so kind to describe each and every of those bugs?
At least the worst ones, and short description of the others?
Thanks.

I have version 2.27x. It now works with XP but it has the bug I mentioned above.
Are you saying version 2.26a does not have the bug?

Sounds like you are very frustrated with IVEX and I certainly understand.

I would move to another CAD program but I have a lot of time and energy invested in developing
custom parts for the library. I don't want to start over.

Cute response, but I have made a serious life-long commitment to my wife.
I have never made a commitment to any software or computer.

If anyone has the installer for Ver 2.26a or 2.27 I would greatly appreciate a copy as I lent my boss (foolishly) my only physical media copy, and he informs me he has no idea where it went, aka "I used it for a coffee mug coaster, before playing frizbee with my imaginary friend...."
