While browsing though the "Program Files" directories in Vista Home Premium, looking for a program that installed SOMEWHERE, I stumbled on to a very useful program that lets you make simple or complex equations you can paste into your favorite word processor (also works in wordpad!). When studying math this would help greatly in computerized note taking. The place you can find it is: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Equation"
I'm curious if anyone else has this program?

I looked inside my WinXP partition and I can't find Equation but, perhaps you have installed it with Microsoft Office? I'm unsure if I have installed it or not and I'm under Ubuntu now. Make sure that such utility really comes with Vista because I remember myself using that program in the Office 97 times.

I have version 3.1. The help file leads to:

You will have 30 days in which to enjoy all of the features of MathType. If you do not purchase MathType within 30 days, it will become MathType Lite. This is exactly like Equation Editor, with the bonus of MathType's fonts and symbols, which you may use with our compliments.

I have an XP partition too and couldn't find it in the location quoted above, didn't look through every folder though. I do have installed Microsoft works for windows 8, but don't recall seeing anything about an "Equation editor" program. On another subject, are you officially a moderator now? If so congratulations Very Happy Exclamation

Mathtype seem to be there more up-to-date program. Equation editor has a copyright notice of 1998, pretty old, but seems to work in Vista very well. Equation editor seems to be a fully functional (as far as I can tell) freebie. Although a well hidden freebie Smile

Its proprietary as I remember, but I haven't used it since http://www.openoffice.org/ has formulae inside without any fuss. And its tied more closely to all the office products.
I think Microsoft bought it in from these guys: http://www.dessci.com/en/products/mathtype/ I used their products before discovering M$'s Equation Editor.

If you don't have it installed with Office, then its probably because you haven't chosen custom installation. Most users unfortunately do that and they don't even know what crap they install and what valuable stuff they are missing.

One of them is definitely the additional formulae in Excel. Some "*-pack" can't remember.

Btw, there's also MathML for web, example from Mozilla: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/

Very Happy

It comes with office. (the 2003 version has it).
You need set Custom Installation and Edit in the Office Tools programs and add this program.
