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
