    Stick to the older version?

    Or do what I did... Be grateful that someone has taken the time to write something that is so useful and pay the money with a smile on your face. Think how much time you'll spend trying to get everything working with an alternative utility. it's only £...... No, I better not post how much, we don't want people to think you're a cheapskate do we ;):D

    well, for one i didn't have the older version since i reformatted my HDD. 2) i couldnt FIND the older version to download and 3) i wasn't about to pay for something that i haven't used for months, and tbh a 30 day trial isn't enough.



    No matter though, i've since found an older version and all is peachy;)

    I'm glad you got to find a copy to try! It's a really great program, though having looked again at the girder site I do think they're being a bit mean making people who've already paid for Girder pay again to upgrade to V4. I'm all for programmers being rewarded for their work, but it's only a control util, once you've paid that should be it IMHO.

    Mark.
