That is a very odd set of events. The install was made with InstallShield. It only installs to C:\Program Files(x86)\MailwareMagic 2011 and the aforementioned data directories, plus a separate Borland Database Engine (BDE) install that the report writer uses. We have a lot of Mailware users as we have been around 16 years, so I have a lot of places I can look for similar problems. I will do some research and post here any results.

Sorry it did not work for you. If you decide to try again let me know. Thanks for the detailed reply too.

A few people have reported problems installing MailwareMagic. The problems have been fixed (see details below). So you can download the free version from the link below. If you have installed before and had problems please uninstall first. Contact me if you need help doing that. We also tweaked a couple items in the new install which I will update in our tutorials later and post here.

I am excited about the new install. If fixes the reported problems with missing shortcuts in the Start menu and difficulties installing to the C:\Users\Public folders (that is a long story but in short it is a Windows Vista and 7 virtualization folder "enhancement" by Microsoft. We fixed it by simply changing the directories to C:\Mailware\MagicData and C:\Mailware\MyMagicData.). I also added a couple tweaks of my own to the data that make building shows easier. I will upload a video next week with examples. Works like a charm and is fun to do too.

If anyone runs into difficulties or needs my help please feel free to post here or PM.

Thanks,
Bruce

TIP: Look for "Performance Category" under the Extras button on the Product screen Stock Levels tab. That is where you would put Mentalism, Magic, ALL etc. When you build shows it allows you to categorize by this category.

Any feedback from people using this?? I have long been trying to keep of things the old school way with a pen and paper, but this looks like it could be a lot easier. Just wish this had existed back in the days I was doing the grand illusion shows...

Hey. I started with install problems. I had to make a folder called C:mailware/ and then put the unzipped files there. No I am on and will try this out Smile

Thanks for the tip Jonas. For anyone else having problems creating a folder first at C:\Mailware\MagicData and C:\Mailware\MyMagicData. It is possible for Windows to return an error during the install if you do not have permissions to create those folders. Or simply right click the downloaded Mailware install and choose "Run as Administrator".

Feel free to post here when you have a question or need help. I will reply as quickly as possible - usually the same day.

Thanks for the Facebook Like too Jonace.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for the downloads and Facebook likes. We now have several dozen Mailware Magic users and many more downloads I have not personally heard from that I hope are enjoying the free version.

I know economic times are difficult and that the full version of Mailware Magic (the one that tracks customers and books shows) may be out of reach at $499. So, I would like to try an experiment.

For a short time (I will post an ending date in this topic) anyone interested in the full version can get it for $99 by contacting me directly. PM or email me at bruce@core-tech.com.

My hope is that at $99 I can put Mailware Magic in the hands of folks who want to pursue their passion as a business and make some bookings. I also hope in return that those people pass the word. It is not my goal to make a "killing" with Mailware Magic. For me it is something that I can offer to the magic community. Don't forget the free version is available too.

So, PM or email if interested in the special price and feel free to post here if you have any questions.

Magically yours,
Bruce

Anyone still using this? I just reorganized my basement, and I'm feeling randy. On a quest to put everything in a database, so I'm just looking for the best one (user friendly, reliable, holds lots of files without bogging down, isn't going to be obsolete two years from now, searchable, allows uploads of photos and notes/scripts, etc.). Any feedback on this one, almost 6 years after the last post? I'm using a Mac.
Now appearing nightly in my basement.
