I used to use intellicomplete (abandonware), but last known version is from 2004 and doesn't work under Vista/2008?

A free alternative, also abandonware, is letMeType, but no luck:

The newer contenders are Typing assistant and phrase express. None of them work on my box for different reasons.

Any other alternatives? Workarounds?

Thanks

Lifehacker's Texter works fine for me as it's autohotkey based.

Comfort Keys says it's Vista-compatible.  There's both Lite and Pro versions, both payware, different prices.  Its smaller brother Comfort Typing might do, but check versions of all these carefully to make sure you pick one that has all the features you want.

ok texter is a text expander. I.e., if you have an acronym or shortcut, it'll expand it. For what I can read comfort typing is in the same boat.
I have to explain: I don't want a text expander. I have ahk.

What I want is a tool that learns the words I use and suggest them. That is, tab completion for writing text.

Comfort typing does so much, and explains so little on what it does, that it may contain this functionality. Does it?
UPDATE: I tried it. It does work. Thanks rjbull!

ActiveWords and SpellCatcher Plus are both working fine on my Vista 64 install BUT I don't really use either much/often.
