Hi,

It should install into :\Program Files (x86)\MailwareMagic 2011. If it is not there (and it sounds like it is not) then something is holding up the install. Try closing all programs esp. any that use the BDE (Borland Database Engine) like Corel products (WordPerfect, Corel Draw, Painter). If you still cannot get it to install I will be happy to look at it for you. We can set up a join.me session and I can trouble shoot it for you.

Advanced Tip: You can manually install Mailware in a pinch. You will need all the files in a zip file. Contact me and I will be happy to send them.

If anyone needs help installing or using Mailware Magic please post here and I will follow up with you.

Thanks,
Bruce

During the install I got the following error:
"Unable to merge new configuration. Use BDE Administrator to merge your new configuration"

However, it seems to have finished the install just the same and runs.

Hi Mike,

You have another program that uses the BDE. You can ignore the error message. It will not affect Mailware Magic.

We will be creating a separate install without the BDE for anyone who receives this error and cannot finish the install (unlikely).

I keep reading "Mailware" as "Malware." Probably not the best association for branding purposes, Smile
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

Yeah, we know. We branded Mailware in 1995, long before there was "malware". The name will change soon. (malware, seriously? Who could have guessed?)

Free one is still free Smile

For those interested in the Pro version, but who do not have the cash I will be happy to consider trades for effects, props etc. valued at approx. $500. Drop me a PM or post here.f

See the Free vs. Pro Comparison page at http://www.mailware.com/magic/mailware/f......parison/

The free version is a great inventory and reporting tool. The pro version lets you manage customers and books shows.

Hi,

Are you getting to this page? http://www.mailware.com/magic/free-demo/

If you fill in the info it will take you to the next page with the Download link. If that is not working let me know what browser you are using. Browsers download files in different ways. It could be automatically saved to your download folder, or you may have a bar at the top of the screen prompting you to allow the download. Feel free to PM me or email bruce@core-tech.com with any details.

Thanks,
Bruce

OK, I finally installed this - installation seemed to go fine, but the program pops error messages galore and doesn’t seem to be able to actually DO anything. Some error pop-ups below:

All these same errors every time I open the program - which didn't get a link in the start menu BTW.

Right now this is pretty much dead in the water and about to be uninstalled.

Thank you.

Hi Jim,

The problem is with Windows permission issues. The install was not able to create the data directory for you. Easy fix is to download the data in a zip file from the link below and install it to C:\users\public. It will unzip into 2 folders (MagicData and MyMagicData).

http://www.mailware.com/pub/MailwareMagicData.zip

FYI, we used to install the data with the program into the Program Files folder, but Windows won't let you do that anymore. It is all about security (viruses, worms etc.). Hopefully one day none of that will be necessary, but until all the bad guys die in cheesy Hollywood death scenes we are stuck with it for a while.

If anyone runs into problems feel free to PM or email me anytime.

Speaking of cheesy death scenes, this should keep you happily occupied while the data files unzip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEhtsgu6bJg

Bruce,

Odd that this is the first program installed on my Windows 7 box that was refused permission to create the data directory. Why would this app have that problem? I presently have 288 programs installed - and many more since uninstalled - and not one has been refused permissions for the data directory creation, until now!

I uninstalled this program after encountering a lot of errors. Oh, and believe it or not I DID find the data directory during the uninstall process: it was on my J:\ drive, which is an external USB 2 drive that I prefer not to have any programs or program data on. It has only media files and backups. Why would the installer for your program put anything at all on an external USB drive? That's a first also!

The deep uninstall I performed found 62 registry entries - some in every section of the registry: HKCU, HKLM, HKCR, etc. Plus the uninstall required the deletion of 319 leftover files and folders that were not removed by the programs uninstall routine. That's not very good IMO.

Jim
