Hi Mixture-
[1]I've never flown on a jet or any other in the sky vehicles
[2]I don't have a car since a few years ago
[3]I don't have any gas-powered gizmos

Maybe I'm just 'green' enough to use WordWeb if need be.
I also keep The Sage on hand if I need it.

Thank you for explaining that strange license to me and the way
its written up does seem kinda weird to me.

@Happy.Camper2
The license clearly says that if you fly aboard a commercial jet aircraft more than TWICE in a 12 month time period, you are not being 'green'. This company believes in environmentalism, and hates normal people like you and I who drive cars, flies aboard aircraft, and use gas-powered lawn mowers. That's why I don't use this weird software and use The Sage instead.

Hi to all of you who use WordWeb-
I've read the license 3 times now & I still don't get it. If you get it, please explain it to me & after you do, I'll probably be saying DUH to myself.
Link to the license if anyone wants to read it....

I've read all of the above comments & I still don't get a clue.

I'm in hopes that one of you can explain it to me.

Thanks in advance.

Perhaps fellow members commiserating at someone's ineptitude to grasp the obvious ?
Your guess is as good as mine...;-)

Muttering instructions to self :

1. Terminate resident process wweb32.exe;
2. Relaunch;
3. Delight in born-again "Replace" button, alive and kicking...;-)
4. Do: https://s13.postimg.org/6hvrgjrzr/Blimey.gif
5. Exit and goof no more.

WordWeb v7.2 includes a nifty "Replace" button which recently decided, without the slightest provocation, to sulk and turn into a Greyed-out mood;

Any way to cajole it back into its former well-behaved, functional self ?

@webfork
Yes, it seems that the download link was updated. Please see my comment at the forum thread:

v8.0.3a

@smaragdus: I checked and it looks like the download.com link has been updated. I tried checking it through the "about" menu but the program doesn't give a specific version number.

v8.0.3a

smaragdus 2016-08-13 08:28

WordWeb web-site offers download via Download.com (no direct downloads) and the version downloaded from Download.com (as of 2016.08.13) is 8.02.

v8.0.3
