KEDIT for Windows 1.6.1 is the current maintenance release of KEDIT. It runs on both the 32-and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 8.1.
KEDIT for Windows 1.6.1 is a minor update to the previous release of the program (version 1.6, from December 2007). It fixes a bug that prevented KEDIT's DOS command from working on Windows 8 and 8.1. This upgrade is free for licensed users of previous versions of KEDIT for Windows.
Should I upgrade to KEDIT for Windows 1.6.1?
If you are moving to Windows 8 or 8.1, we recommend that you upgrade to KEDIT for Windows 1.6.1, so that KEDIT's DOS command will work properly for you.
If you are using KEDIT for Windows 1.5 or earlier, we also recommend that you upgrade to KEDIT for Windows 1.6.1, because it includes a number of important changes, originally made in version 1.6, that are necessary for KEDIT to run smoothly on recent versions of Windows.
If you are currently using KEDIT for Windows 1.6 on Windows XP, Vista, or 7, you do not need to upgrade to version 1.6.1. You are, however, welcome to do so.
