Although on the face of it this looks like a good value pack my disappointment began with discovering that the DIY CD is not compatible with Windows XP, despite the package being advertised as suitable for the XP platform. Amazon's returns policy tells me that I cannot return it as I have removed it from its plastic wrapping so I am not a happy bunny.
Visual Home Deluxe is an American product and the house sfeatured are not ones you are likely come across in the UK or Ireland nor are the design styles. I was most interested in using it for trying out interior decoration i.e. testing colours in different rooms and specifically the hallway but the hallway does not feature nor does the colour option.
Very disppointing all round
