AGWPE-compatible Programs

The chart below shows some of the programs and utilities that will work with AGWPE. In addition, the AGWPE site has information about a few other programs. Click on the "AGWPE configuration help" next to a program for additional help on this web site. Otherwise, visit the program's web site listed in the last column.

If you're having trouble getting a particular application to work with AGWPE, first make sure AGWPE works with the  AGW Terminal Program . If AGWTerm won't work with AGWPE, then you have a problem with AGWPE that needs to be resolved before it will work with the other program; see the troubleshooting guide.
