Spanish Letters Programme

I have downloaded it several times, but I seem unable to open it anywhere. I can't find any reference to it anywhere on my computer, where am I going wrong?

What do you mean about Sancho Panther? Do you mean the accents for Spanish

@Sancho: Do you have a Mac? This is an .exe file, which will only work in a PC.

Sorry to all who replied - I completely forgot I'd begun this thread! No A.d.A. I don't have a Mac but I downloaded the little box of various letters with accents etc several times and they then just disappeared. It's not a big deal but I just wondered why someone should compile a function to download only for it to serve no apparent purpose!

It's very strange... I've downloaded it and installed it just out of curiosity, and it has worked alright so far...
I hope Tomisimo can take a look at it and see if there is some incompatibility or a bug that can be fixed. ;(

Yes A.d.A. my motive was mere curiosity too, but I doesn't appear anywhere. Whereabouts on your computer do you manage to open it?

I downloaded it and unzipped it into My Documents and it can be called from there, but you can also create a shortcut on your desktop to activate it. Please note that it won't appear on your "All Programs" list, because the program does not install anything, it just... runs.
I think you can find it if you search for "SpanishLetters.exe" with Windows searching tool.
