    "Multi-languages support is questionable"

    July 14, 2009  |   By punkin1668


    Easy to use and do the job - keep your passwords organized and safe. Its management is similar to manage your files and folders in File Explorer. You can group all your password records into floders. You can make notes and attach files as needed.


    Multi-language support is not 100% true and no multi-language input support either.


    My version of Password Manager XP is professional. It claims to support multi-language but it is NOT 100% true. The languages support only work if your OS supports. I have English version operating system, XP Pro. If I select German from the language selection in the Password Manager XP as the default langague, German will be displayed properly because, I guess, English is part of Germanic languages group. If I choose Chinese or another other non-Germanic languages, what I see on screen will be the garbage and question marks (???) characters. It is really bad. It appears to me or end users that it doesn't support the languages but it claims to support. This problem doesn't happen to my other REAL multi-language supported software.

    On my Windows XP system, I can type Chinese to mix English in to a document as long as I save it in unicode. Password Manager XP completely doesn't support it. Luckily the recent version (I can't recall from which version), it supports file attachment. So I can put notes into a document and then attach it to Password Manager.

    I have never talked to their support. But I introduced it to a few friends but they all said they have never got a response/answer from them regarding the multi-language support limitation. Thus, I guess their support may not be a problem.

    I have bought and owned this product for at least 5 or 6 years. It is a good product. Besides easy to use, you can make it available to your removable (thumb) USB drive or floppy. I like it. In addition, the licence is forever. Unlike your virus software licence or others, you pay zero (0) annual fee for renewal or upgrade.
