Hi Vasu,

Raghav is right. Before posting the resource I have tried on my own computer. It is perfectly working. If you have 64 BIT Version of Windows 7. Then it might not be working because this Text Editor is of MS-DOS Version 5 which mainly works on 32 Bit Version of Windows operating System. It will not work with 64 BIT version.
