Do not touch with a ten foot barge pole!,
This review is from: FloorPlan 3D Home Design Suite 8.0 & House Doctor Book inc. free Home Software Pack (CD-ROM)
After reading the positive reviews on this site, I ordered a copy from Amazon. It took nearly a month to arrive, so not feeling that good when it eventually arrived.
However I loaded the software onto my PC. This is a machine with 512mb of memory, Pentium 4 2.4 gig running XP Pro with Broadband connection to the internet – in short a reasonable spec’ed machine and considerably exceeds the recommended spec for the product. Once installed, I tried to run the software. The good news is that it brought up the Desktop. The bad news is it then reported “out of memory”. Try to select anything and same out of memory message. Tried running with everything else closed. Same message. Tried applying available patches (8.1), same message.
Tried the BBS mentioned by others here and got answers that it does not work well with XP with the suggestion that this was down to MS, not the product vendors!!!!
Tried the email help service IMSI (publishers) offer and got no reply.
I have had a PC at home for some 15 years. I have run a large PC development group. I am no novice to PCs. Every other piece of software runs fine.
This software is not “fit for purpose”. Avoid it like the plague.
Sorry the Amazon review insists I give it one star – it does not deserve even this.
Next problem is how to return to Amazon and get my money back?
