    "Installation was incredibly frustrating!"

    March 12, 2013  |   By sarahhenning1

    Pros

    Has let me watch part of a lecture I needed to see- the only pro!

    Cons

    As noted above I did need to install this to watch a lecture. Despite going to the webpage 2 hours prior to the lecture it only told me I needed to install it when the lecture started - 20 minutes, 3 installation attempts and a restart later it finally worked (after I searched for 'couldn't load plug ins' and got some advice). By this point I'd missed 20 mins of the lecture which couldn't be restarted and I'm so frustrated I'm ready to hurl the computer out of the window!!! Really annoyed and will be removing the installation as soon as lecture is finished.

    Summary

    Really frustrating to install - I expected more from Microsoft!
