Wednesday, June 1, 2011 by M-203 | Discussion: Object Desktop
My Computer suffered a mentsal breakdown due to carelessness on my part.
So rather than waste a load of time trying to fix the problem,
I opted, (since it is a Windows 7 system, and the easiest and fastest OS install I ever had),
to simply reinstall the entire OS clean.
I say again, this is on a freshly installed and updated Windows 7 64-bit system.
Now, imagine my suprise when I got this error:
when trying to install Object Desktop, which DID work on THIS machine up until 4 days ago!!!
So I thought, ok, I still have all the archived material from Impulse,
and tried to restore everything so I could continue to use what I paid for.
Not ONE single archive could be restored, I tried each and every one, nothing...
So how am I now to use the Software I PAID FOR...?!?!?!
Why do I hate Impulse, and never wanted it from the very start you ask?
First off: In the good old days, you paid for your purchase, downloaded what you paid for,
and could install and use it any time you wanted!
Impulse is the first time I EVER saw PAID software expire...
Secondly: WHAT THE HELL is the point of wasting time & space archiving the software,
if you can't restore the damn stuff???
Impulse: ..so you can restore it at a later date.
Huh? I have had cause to use restore in the past, didn't work.
I have definate cause now to restore my archives, doesn't work.
So, why build a function in to Impulse that does not work?
It's a waste of time and diskspace.
Thirdly: Why force people to use the Impulse software,
if it can't be made to install the software that was current at the time thier "account expired"?
I paid for it, why can't I use it? I don't care if it's not the most current version,
I can't afford a new subscription as long-term unemployed by way of a cheap shot redundancy.
So again I ask: how am I now to use the Software I PAID FOR...?!?!?!
When I added the registration in Impulse for CursorFX Plus and DeskScapes,
which I purchased BEFORE I purchased OD, they were accepted,
so why my OD registration is not, is beyond me and BLOODY ANNOYING...!!!
