Word Count is an extension for newtworks.
with Works document open tap on Tools and then select 'Word Count'  
probably at bottom of list.  Count should show up.

I like both Works Better and WriteStuff,  given a choice I'd go with  
Works Better because it imports Notes documents.  Notes is better for  
hand writing.

Re installing:  Download 'Packager" and drop package on it before  
this may fix it.
