"Cannot get program to open after installing"

June 09, 2011  |  By UncleGene

 |  Version: Calendar Creator Deluxe 12.1

Pros

Unable to determine because program will not open

Cons

Program will not open after installation. Computer will run "shutting down" until I unplug it. Never did this before installing version 12.1.

Summary

Several months ago I was experiencing difficulties with my v.10--small things like changing box events to banner events, so I ordered a copy of v.12.1. My old program was working more nearly as it should have, so I delayed installing v,12.1 until yesterday. Installation and restart was apparently normal, but upon trying to open and run the newly-installed v.12.1, I received the following error message from Creator: "The configuration file C:\Program Files\Calendar Creator\AGB\Startup.cfg does not match C\Program Files/Calendar Creator\CCSku.DLL -- cannot continue." I tried reloading the original v.10, and received the same error message. Any suggestions?

"crashes, instructions for crashes are incorrect"

March 26, 2011  |  By MAK9876

 |  Version: Calendar Creator Deluxe 12.1

Pros

makes nice calendars automatically updating ages/years and I could add pictures to each page. and I've used it in older versions for years.

Cons

It no longer works--probably due to extras they have added. It crashes without saving, is slow--especially the pictures. The instructions require changes to my computer--but the instructions are incorrect.

Summary

Wish I had seen this review earlier!! Don't waste your money.

"I am a long time program user, vers 4, 8, 9 and now 12."

February 16, 2011  |  By Elder_Guy

 |  Version: Calendar Creator Deluxe 12.1

Pros

Version 12 works much the same as Ver 9. Both have their warts, some warts are the same in both. You know them and you work around them.

Cons

Unable to get the Daylight Saving time event to work properly in Ver 12.
It needs more generic plain calendar layouts. I was finally able to get my Ver 9 layout to work. That layout did not appear in the list of layouts.

Summary

I was worried about upgrading to Ver 12 but I had to upgrade due to the purchase of a Win 7 laptop. I had read the thread about incompatibilites with previous versions. My Ver 9 event files read in without a problem. I doubt if I will use any of the net related features. I up and running without any known problems.

I wish they would fix it so the calendar scrolls with a wheel mouse. The event list window scrolls; why doesn't the calendar window? I haven't tried to access the picture files, they were always slow in the previous versions.

Overall I would say I am happy with Version 12. As a longtime program user I was worried about going without Calendar Creator in Win 7.

"No upgrade facility from earlier versions"

December 26, 2008  |  By DanAder

 |  Version: Calendar Creator Deluxe 12.1

Pros

None that I can think of.

Cons

I used CC to maintain a Family calendar with birthdays and ages. When I decided to upgrade they said NONE of my user files were forward compatible with this new version. I would have to start from scratch, re-keying all that name and birth date data.

Summary

Broderbund is the SoupNazi of software. I wouldn't spend another second on their crapware, other than to warn others to stay away from it.

"Horrible program, Horrible Company Service"

December 08, 2008  |  By Paul_J_L

 |  Version: Calendar Creator Deluxe 12.1

Pros

Lots of options and variables for customizing calendars

Cons

Incredibly slow. Many of the options for customizing don't work.

Summary

Could not print individual pages of a calendar. Strange behavior with my printer default settings. The only way to change the printer is to change the default printer. The customization options only caused the program to crash or malfunction.

Do not buy from this company!

"B***S***"

January 24, 2008  |  By TurnAboutCre8

 |  Version: Calendar Creator Deluxe 12.1

Pros

Who can tell? They lock it up so tight you can't get in.

Cons

All the lockouts. They prevent me from using the program unless I buy it. I thought this was a free trial?

"Broderbund is an impossible company to communicate with."

December 18, 2007  |  By Shar1946

 |  Version: Calendar Creator Deluxe 12.1

Pros

There's nothing to like because no matter how deep I go trying to uninstall "an older version [9] of Calendar Creator," I can't get it off my computer. Version 12 will not install until version 9 is gone!

Cons

I have had several e-mail communications with someone named Cliff W. at Broderbund who doesn't seem to speak my lanuguage. They refuse to call me and talk me through this problem, so I've had to call upon my Computer Consultant several times just to figure out what Cliff is trying to have me do!

Version 9 of CC was "delicate," so maybe I was foolish to think an upgrade would be better. But evidently, I was wrong. I will never buy anything from this company again.
