You can't. You need to install a virtual machine with an old OS then install wordstar.

Why not try a free version of OpenOffice or see if StarOffice is still around.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

Star Office is not WordStar. The word-processing program is a vintage 1980's version. I have a CD Star Office. Not the same.

Thanks anyway.

Wordstar for Windows was designed for Windows 3.x, therefore you would need to install MS-DOS6.22/Windows3.x in Virtual Machine Software.

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....
