"Abandoned product - beware!"
Version: Overture 4.0.2
Works as advertised (except for the many bugs, of course)
It's rather buggy, but the biggist problem by far is that this product has been abandoned by the developer. There will be NO updates!
I have used this product for many years. Sadly, its development and support was abandoned several years ago.
HOWEVER, they still maintain a website and will sell a copy to the unaware (NOTE: no refunds; all sales final)
Their products are bug-ridden, and because there is no longer any pretense of support (despite the presence of a "Forum"; just check the dates on the latest posts).
There are pricey and not so pricey alternatives; the key is to go with one that is still actively being supported.
