Greetings from Turkey,

I am not able to use my Legacy 6.0 because it can not handle turkish characters. I was told that a new edition will appear in 2007 which will be able to handle turkis characters.
Can you please tell me when this will edition is likely to be released?

Best regards


Hello, I have the same question about Legacy 7. Legacy 6 has been around for quite a while now, and I'm waiting to purchase until Legacy 7, or unless I'm given a free upgrade to 7 when it comes out soon.

You are currently offering Lagacy update for Vista Is this only for Vista users or should I download it (I still use Windows XP)

This update is for everyone, but for Vista users they must download/install the full setup this time.
