I just recently bought a copy of Sierra On-Line's "Homeword" word I just
recently bought a copy of Sierra On-Line's "Homeword" word processor for
my kids. They just can't master DisplayWrite yet. It is a nice for the
price program. BUT, wouldn't you know, it's protected, with no
provision for backup other th an $15 and "we'll mail a new disk". Fat
chance! There is no way the kids won't destroy the disk. So, to
unprotect Homeword, first format a new system disk, then copy all the
Homeword files to it.

Next, rename the Homeword program file HWCOMP.EXE to HWCOMP.TMP.
With Dos in drive A: and the new Homeword Disk in drive B: enter
debug b:hwcomp.tmp (CR)
e cs:59f eb 05 (CR)
w (CR)
q (CR)
Now, rename HWCOMP.TMP to HWCOMP.EXE
That should do it. At least it worked for me on version 1.0

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
