Hi Everyone,

I have been a magician and now a mentalist for many years. I also founded a 15 year old software company. For the past few years we have been developing Mailware Magic. It is a special modification of our Internet Retailer system (Mailware) that sells for several thousand dollars.

For a limited time we are giving away the Inventory and Show Creation system for Free. You can also try out the paid version (client and show booking) which is included in the free version download. Use the free version forever. When you are ready it is easy to upgrade to the paid version anytime with no lost data. Using Mailware Magic is much easier than most software. We have spent a lot of time and effort creating simple step-by-step instructions in both written and video formats on our web site. There is also a free forum where you can ask questions, share reports and data and get free support.

Please visit the site for more information and to download the free version. In return we ask that you LIKE US ON FACEBOOK http://www.tinyurl.com/MailwareMagic and spread the word. You can also buy the full version directly from the demo after you install it.


Here is the link to download the free version: http://www.mailware.com/magic (Click on the Free Demo link at the top of the page)


And a short list of just some of the features:

INVENTORY (Free Version)
--------------------------------
Track all your stuff including effects, props, books, dvd's, accessories etc.
Share your inventory and For Sale lists as .pdf files
Print Show Checklists (of effects and props) and Scripts for any effects/shows
Group items by venue, type (e.g., Magic, Mentalism etc.), rating, time and more
Associate props and utility items with effects (e.g., Ambitious Card also requires a card deck and Sharpie pen)
Track the quantity of each item and its exact location

BUILD SHOWS (Free Version)
------------------------------------
Create as many shows as you like with their effects, props, scripts and times
Print Checklists (of effects and props) and Scripts for any shows including time lengths
Includes a deep search system that lets you build shows without interrupting the creative process

REPORTS AND EMAIL (Free Version)
-----------------------------------------
Print or email your inventory list in multiple formats
Print special reports like bands for card decks
Send form letters and emails
Print or email contracts, form letters and invoices
Create your own reports and emails with the built in tools

CUSTOMERS (Paid Version)
--------------------------------
Store client contact information
Keep track of all contacts and order history
Send emails and form letters
Print Contracts or email them
Attach copies of documents to the client's account (e.g., faxed or scanned contracts, letters etc.)
Call, mail and email your customers to get new and repeat business

ORDERS (BOOK SHOWS) (Paid Version)
------------------------------------------
Take phone orders, or import orders from your website
Invoice clients or charge their credit card in real time (merchant account required - we can help with this)
Print, fax or email invoices and contracts right from the order
Schedule shows based on your calendar
Print scripts and checklists for ordered shows - never forget a prop or accessory again

Mailware Magic has been streamlined and optimized to meet the needs of hobbyist and professional magicians, mentalists, jugglers, vents and other performing artists. Mailware can also be used by magic dealers, agents and magic clubs. The free version is our way of saying thank you to this unique community of performers. The paid version is intended for the working pro.

Please feel free to email me with any questions by visiting the site at http://www.mailware.com/magic/about-us/contact-us/. PM's and posts to this topic work too. I check both regularly although keep in mind that PM's are limited to 60 so my mailbox here could fill up pretty quickly.

Go grab the free version http://www.mailware.com/magic and please be sure to LIKE US ON FACEBOOK http://www.tinyurl.com/MailwareMagic so we can spread the word.

Thanks,
Bruce

Hi,

If you use Bootcamp or Wine, yes. When you download the demo there are links to both in the System Requirements on that page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I registered for it but then didn't actually download it as I'm on a mac. I know there are ways to use it but I don't want to use bootcamp anymore.

Thanks for making it available though

Hi,

Mailware Magic uses the Borland Database Engine (BDE) for the report writer so it can export to ASCII (.txt) format. If you get an error stating "unable to merge new configuration, use BDE administrator to merge" it means you have another program on your system that also uses the BDE.

You can ignore the message and continue with the install. It will not affect the performance of Mailware.

If anyone needs help with the install please feel free to post here and I will get right back to you.

Thanks,
Bruce

Sounds great. Too bad no one seems to be making this sort of software specifically for Mac, though. I'll never buy another PC again after getting burned on Windows ME. But the features of this software sound very well thought out.

We love Macs, but they are not a very viable platform for developing applications like this one. We do post on the download page the System Requirements with links to both Bootcamp and Wine. The latter does not require you purchase Windows so it is a free way to use Windows apps. You may want to give Wine a try.

Thanks for the features comment. We worked hard and applied the system in practical real-world situations to make it useful to the magic community. And thank you to everyone who has downloaded so far. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or need assistance.

Hi,

A couple people have asked where Mailware installs. If you do not have Windows 7 or Vista then ignore the (x86) in the path below. Otherwise these paths are the same for everyone.

If Mailware installed correctly it will be located in the following folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\MailwareMagic 2011 (You can simply browse their with Windows Explorer and double click the Mailware program file if you do not see a shortcut in your program menu).

Your data folders should have installed to: C:\Users\Public\MagicData (sample data) and C:\Users\Public\MyMagicData (your blank database).

If anyone needs help feel free to contact me using this post, a PM or on our website at http://www.mailware.com/magic/support/

We have help, a contact link and a forum at the above address to assist you.

Thanks to everyone who has downloaded Mailware Magic and LIKED us on Facebook. Your vote helps us get the word out.

Thanks to all who have downloaded the free version. To introduce the pro version (which includes Client Management and Show Booking) we are offering a 20% discount to Café members. That's $100 off the retail price. This will help us determine if it is viable to advertise here on the Café.

Show your support and get a truly powerful inventory, client and show booking system that really works.

Use the following link to get the 20% discount for a very limited time only.

To those who have asked: The Free version is exactly the same as the pro version with the exception of the Customer and Orders features. So everyone can simply download the demo/free version. We will unlock it with license files we email to you when you purchase so you can use the Client (Customer) and Show Booking (Order) features. The demo/free version will let you play with these features, but limits the number you can enter.

The link for the download again is: http://www.mailware.com/magic/free-demo/

And don't forget to LIKE us on Facebook. It helps us advertise: http://www.tinyurl.com/MailwareMagic

Thanks,
Bruce

Downloaded, but either the installation process takes ages or theres no progress whatsoever in my installation status bar.

Of course, given that there are relatively few magicians globally, and yet much less even trying this program out, Norton anti-virus is screaming its head out that "you are downloading an uncommon file that may infect your computer with virus"

No installation progress whatsoever on my 64Bit Windows.
