    Mine does not have the xpkDaily file that it is looking for and it is saying that it is being denied.

    Aaah, I think I see what the problem is. When I made the zip file, it wouldn't make the blank xpkDaily folder, it just removed it.

    Try navigating to

    %programdata%\microsoft\Microsoft Ink Crossword\Data\

    and then create a xpkDaily folder there, and I think it should work then.

    That made it farther. Now it is saying that it does not have fcx10317-data.xml.

    Well, fcx10317-data.xml should just be today's puzzle.

    In fact, I deleted my "xpkDaily" folder, and it still downloaded the puzzles correctly, so I have to think there's another issue. You're on Windows 7? Are you in the US? Maybe the server won't let your region download or something? (That's just a wild guess, I really have no idea).

    I'm on Windows 7 64-bit and in the US. Now it won't even find the universal puzzles. I've tried reinstalling it but still nothing. What directories should everything be in? Thanks for the help.

    I've never tried it on Windows 7 x64, so maybe that is the issue? The program looks for the sample puzzles in

    %programdata%\microsoft\Microsoft Ink Crossword\Data\xpkSamples\

    and the daily ones download to

    %programdata%\microsoft\Microsoft Ink Crossword\Data\xpkDaily\

    . In Windows 7, that means that the folders are

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Ink Crossword\Data\xpkSamples\
    and
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Ink Crossword\Data\xpkDaily\

    There should be a PackContents.xml and 12 fcx*-data.xml files in the Samples folder.

    Similar gets put in the Daily folder. Up to 7 fcx*-data.xml files can be downloaded, and a PackContents.xml gets created as well.

    (Though, off-topic, but if you manually edit the PackContents.xml you can have more than the 7 puzzles loaded.)

    Out of curiosity, what was the issue in case it comes up again?

    I had the same problem with the access denied message for the xpkDaily folder. Navigate to the folder:

    c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Ink Crossword\Data\xpkDaily

    Then select Properties and on the Security tab you can edit the permissions for Everyone and Users to full access. Once you fix the permissions, you should be able to download the daily puzzle.

    Sorry, took the site down last week. I didn't realize people were still accessing it.

    I put the files back up, let me know if you have any trouble downloading.

    Does this means that for other languages the software remains in English or that the software can be installed only on English version of windows 7?

    I got it installed, but I can't draw on the desktop - using the pen just draws selection boxes as if I was just using the mouse on a normal desktop, any ideas?

    Hallo to all!
    I have a problem with the install of InkDesktop on Win7 64bit.
    I downloaded the file from the link on first page for the Windows 7 version, but it didn't install. The language on Win7 is Italian, but it's not a problem for me to install InkDesktop in english. How can I do for install? When I try appear a pop up windows with message I haven't WinVista...

    I just installed the Ink Desktop linked to on this thread for Windows 7 64-bit. It installed fine but then when I try to run it, I get an error.

    "Unhandled exception has occurred in a component in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.

    Unable to load DLL 'olepro32.dll': The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)"

    When I click continue, it just makes the screen gray with the icon of the Ink Desktop, where I can do nothing useful except close it out.

    And the error details:

    Wow! thanks for these apps! It's sad that Microsoft can't makes these available officially for Windows 7.

    Ink Desktop is so cool! I was okay with using sticky notes. But now, it's definitely been replaced with Ink Desktop!

    thanks for the sudoku and crossword games.
