Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Up and Running with Java Applications (PC/Mac) (DVD-ROM)
At the time of writing this it showed under Technical Details on the Amazon UK site only as being suitable for -
- Windows Vista
- Mac OS X
When one purchases and gets the item, one discovers on the DVD packaging that it does not include Windows 2000.
Whoever advertised the technical details is either duplicitous or ignorant (of the technical facts)
The DVD cannot even install Quicktime under my Windows 2000.
When installed under XP on two of my other drives, Quicktime won't install properly enough for the program to work, even after re-installation. I've never liked Quicktime for the problems I've found with it previously.
I've paid £31 for a software product that doesn't work, through no fault of the vendor. The manufacturers of the product (in 2012) have obviously got caught up with the complexities of creating a product that needs to be backward compatible - no thanks to Microsoft and this manufacturer.
It might work on someone else's system, but they would have to find out for themselves. In the meantime I'm going to try find another Quicktime that is compatible with XP (but perhaps won't work with the program for Java training itself)
If I don't come back to express joy at having found resolution, take it as a loss for me.
