Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing.
GVim 7.0 installs, however the OLE registration fails. It runs more or less when clicking away the error messages after the program has been started. It is also required to click in the bottom text line to get to the main editor window. Also it's necessary to set the guifont parameter to "set guifont=Courier:h10:cDEFAULT", which is the only font that GVim finds.
What does not
GVim 7.0 can't register its OLE objects. Also, the menu items aren't drawn correctly, in fact, they're unreadable. The GVim default font isn't supported and hence causes some confusion during WM_PAINT operations in the text area. After setting the guifont parameter to "Courier:h10:cDEFAULT" (best done in _vimrc), this problem disappears. If the guifont is not set to this value, error messages will appear when exiting GVim.
What was not tested
I haven't tried to work proper yet with this install of GVim, but it appears to work except as noted.
