I'm getting an error message when I try to use that function. It asks me if I want to save the change. I say yes. And then it takes me to the screen with my score and I can't do anything else from there except cancel. I cannot do a print preview. What am I doing wrong?

It's my understanding that the NWC Scriptorium has an engine of sorts that can play back scores directly from that site. @Richard Woodroffe , who posts the weekly Scriptorium update messages, could probably describe it better.

Yes, it does - but this is some serverside mechanics that convert the clicked nwc file to midi and then plays the midi file.
There used to be a plugin for browsers that played files directly within the browser, but then Microsoft changed their engine that drove the plugins and so only non Microsoft browsers worked, and not all of them. Eventually Eric did away with the plugin.

I think this was 2003/2004.

The following was posted at the time :

Microsoft is at it again. Although we have never seen a formal announcement from Microsoft, it is clear to us from its behavior that Microsoft intends to drop support for standard browser plug-ins in their Internet Explorer product. Microsoft started this process several years ago, and it appears to be finishing the job. The most recent security update for Internet Explorer disables the Plugin.ocx mechanism, which in turn, turns off any browser plug-in that uses it, including the NWC Browser Plug-in. In its security bulletin, it implies that it will no longer be installing this mechanism with new computers. This means that over time, users wishing to take advantage of the NWC Browser Plug-in while browsing should switch to an alternate browser that supports the plug-in standard.

Edit - The last plugin setup file I have is dated May 2006

No.
Depending on the age of the keyboard, you may need an USB-MIDI adapter.

Can you explain how to use the "create user objects to print date modified" option?
Thanks
If you check this action, and  save the changes, a user object 'PageTxtMaestro.nw' (if not already present) and  'PageTxt.nw' with 'Page Style' = 'Modified' will be inserted in your score.
This will print the date modified in the bottom left corner of each page. If you want it to be printed at another position, you can change the PageTxt object.
I suggest you just try it and do a 'Print Review'.

There is one other site you might consider: go to https://noteworthycomposer.org/nwc2abcjs and open a NWC score, or paste the nwctxt into the window, and click Convert. This will convert the score to abc notation, and will display and play the score in real time. Note that the conversion to abc notation is not perfect, but I have found it works well for most scores. It even has rudimentary support for a few user objects, such as arpeggios.

Thank you, it looks like the answer is NO.
I've found the Play button on Scriptorium listings helpful, but was looking for something that would show the score being played w/o installing the Viewer.

I started using this tool today. I like being able to put the date modified in the File info comments.

Can you explain how to use the "create user objects to print date modified" option?

Thanks
