Outdated Dinosaur Software

  • By Adrian from Brooklyn, NY on Wednesday, May 23, 2012
  • Pros: Didn't arrive on floppy disks.
  • Cons: Won't run on modern systems.
  • Review: The product hasn't been updated for modern computers. The minimum system requirements don't list any OS newer than 2009. It absolutely WILL NOT run on OSX that does not support Rosetta (10.7 or newer). Their other products don't even run on 10.4 or newer (look at the screenshots). Even the Windows requirements don't list Windows 7, which came out in 2009. The PC requirements are listed as 486/66 or better. There haven't been 486 PCs out since the mid 1990s. Save your time and money and skip on this piece of software until the manufacturer uses the revenue to update it to the modern age. Maybe if it cost $20 it would be worth it, but at $100 they need to keep it current.

  • Pros: NONE
  • Review: I read on the Comm1 website that this product would work on a macbook. I even called the company and they said sure it will no problem. Well I get the product and try it out and it won't even load on my macbook. Apparently, this type of application will not work on the newest version of OS software (lion). To be fair this version of OS had recently come out. Apparently PowerPC applications are no longer supported is the message I get. I called the company and while they were very courteous and helpful, they said it would take a few months to get the software to change. Unfortunately they would not take it back. While I believe they will potentially fix the problem in the future - I was not offered anything more or even an offer to provide me a new CDRom when they fix the problem. THIS PRODUCT DOESNT WORK ON A MAC WITH LION!!! So my options now are to get microsoft windows - (MORE MONEY)... So now Im stuck with software that will not work. I would have expected more from this company.
