I have downloaded the abiword204.zip prerelease available for testing
I have tested this new abiword version in real hardware but abiword
fails to load due to a bugcheck in Win32K.
The bug233 has benn created for this problem.
Note : As long as abiword is not started by double clicking on
abiword.exe ,, the registry was not updated.
