It is a fully portable, self-contained program (written with PureBasic from Fantaisie Software). The install file is for convenience only, the program can be copied and run from anywhere, including removable media. Version 2 programs are available as both 32-bit and 64-bit executables.
Current version is 2.2.1 and is recommended. It is an update on version 2.2.0 (Dec 2013), which was a major revision and introduced the selectable key sets, with a total of around 600 different characters.
The original Extra Characters (version 1) is a much older, non-Unicode program and will run on older versions of Windows from 95 onwards. It is not recommended for newer systems. Written in MS VB6 and requires its normal run-time libraries.
