    "Installs but doesn't work!"

    September 10, 2010  |   By skaizun

    Pros

    None; it didn't work.

    Cons

    It installed, then asked for some basic info, then wouldn't do anything after that.

    Summary

    It asked for basic info, such as name (ostensibly because more than one person can enter info), weight and height (in metric or imperial units, not U.S. pounds or feet/inches), etc. However, when you try to save it, it complains that this is a "demo" version, so you can't save it. Then, it clears the data, so you have to start from scratch; if you omit the non-demo version info, it says that you haven't filled-in all the info. In other words, this is a demo that doesn't work. Not too smart, and certainly not an incentive to (presumably) purchase the full version, especially as there are plenty of free online calorie counters available. The uninstall left a folder with a small database file, and a desktop icon, which I couldn't delete (that's more Vista's fault than Calorie Counter's, but still . . . ).

    Don't bother with this useless program.
