The vendor needs to add some audio to with their [confusing] video.

All this arguing over XP. If you have a legit XP OS, as we all have/had, try upgrading legit with no available cash.

I've done what Jeff did because the GCD files are a pain with Windows 10 (I downloaded the 64 bit version from their website; and the license code does indeed work.) But can anyone from the company tell me if it is ok to do this?

Thanks in hope,

OMG! I have wanted this program for several years! I nearly fell over when I read it was a giveaway! The license is for personal use, which is fine with me! I have used the free version and I consider it to be a diamond among conversion programs.

Windows XP - Dowloaded the software; it's asking for .NET Framework 4. But this version of .NET Framework, or the later versions, will not install.

Now what?

Plainpc, On their page under system requirements it has a link for the .NET framwork

Plainpc,
It looks like there was an error on today's download page stating that it could run on XP, if you look at download the link sent by Randy Burrell in reply to you system specifications is a minimum of Vista.
The net framework required will not install in XP.

I work with d-bases all of the time at work and never had a need to convert SQL into text or CSV formats. This was needed in the '80s when there were over 50 d-base formats, today 4-5 is all you need to know and how to intermingle them.

Download the 64 bit version of this at their website. License code works for it as well.

Has anyone been able to install this under Windows 10? When I run the setup I only get the screen with the activation code and then I am directed to the website which says "Now that you have activated". The program never begins an installation.

This software is very well done and full of possibilities for those who use and manipulate data.

If you spend a lot of time changing data formats, manipulating columns, transforming data between databases and spreadsheets, you may well find something magical here, and occasional vestiges of German words are unlikely to bother you.

If you do not deal with data in this way, then a tool like this that is designed for that purpose is unlikely to appeal to you at all. BUT, isn't that true for every software offered by GAOTD? Instead of complaining when software offered is not useful to you personally, why not celebrate the fact that it sometimes/often is?

I find software at GAOTD that is useful to me often enough that I keep coming back.

Thanks once again, GAOTD!

Terry Chaney, I agree, not every program that GOTD offers is of use to me, but like you I have found plenty that I love. I have been here for years, not only because of the software offers, but also for the comments of other computer users.

A very interesting product. The tutorial is clear and helpful. A Freeware version of the product is also available. The Freeware provide the opportunity to handle 10.000 Data Sets.

suntsu33,
"The Freeware provides the opportunity to handle 10.000 Data Sets." It's not 10,000 Data Sets, but 10,000 records. That's not much. Just enough to test drive the product, I suspect.

Also, the video tutorial available at their site does not run on my machine. It tells me that the MIME format used is not supported on my machine.

SkippyK, Thank you for the hint. The tutorial runs fine on my win7 ultimate machine.

Could not get it to run in XP SP3 as it states it requires net framework 4.5 which, according to Microsoft, requires the Vista and above.
Take care if you go to the Microsoft site to download net framework, they are really pushing Windows 10 and you will finish up on that download page when you like it or not.

Reply   |   Comment by Seb  –  7 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Seb, XP SP3 has been discontinued for a reason - it has many security holes now and vulnerabilities. It is an unsafe operating system. Windows 7 would be better, preferably Windows 8.1. There is no valid reason to stick to XP anymore. It is like saying Go Karts are the best means of transport, rather than use a car with proper brakes, windscreen and protection.

Chris Locke (CS Computer Services),
No offence, but how can you possibly tell me that I have no valid reason to continue with XP.

I have just short of 39 years of computer experience plus postgraduate qualifications in computing.

This makes me feel that I'm a big enough boy to make my own decisions as to my operating system.

I do have Windows 7 and I really dislike it, it is the least used of four systems in my computer.

So let's come to an agreement, I won't dictate what OS you use and, I won't dictate which OS you use.

Seb, Software has always had hardware and OS requirements. This is no different.
Clinging to a 15-year-old OS well beyond its lifecycle isn't going to be able to run all software written to current standards.
I have fond memories of my Commodore 64 but I'm not going to complain that Witcher 3 won't run on it.

Rolo, what is whitcher 3 @ where can we get it?

Reply   |   Comment by Adam  –  7 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-5)

Chris Locke - The point was that the system requirements claim it works with XP and it doesn't.
I, too, have some computers running XP...and for good, valid reasons. Perhaps some of us built our go-carts with proper brakes and windshields.
The software works reasonably well on Win7 so I'll keep it.

Absolutely no problem to that. My -7 comments to your +2 proves that point.
Not sure what the 39 years of computer experience has to do with it though...

Chris Locke (CS Computer Services),
It means I have enough experience in computers to make good choices.
I tried it in Windows 7 and it works very well, I use it when I have to do so.
At other times I much prefer XP and therefore I work in that OS.
Sorry it causes you so much distress that I will not allow Microsoft to dictate to me.
End of this childish discussion as far as I'm concerned.

Chris Locke, You do indeed have the choice of machines. We all do. I think that you were just giving information, not criticizing. Unfortunately, as you may have noticed, our tones of voice, body language and facial expressions do not come across properly to strangers in texts and emails. Sometimes not to people we know well!

Chris Locke (CS Computer Services), I like Windows 98, XP, 7, 8.1, 10, Linux (better specify not a Windows OS) and would even still use Win 3.1 if it would run anything. I liked the way the entire program went into it's own folder in 3.1 instead of half the program going into a Windows folder. Guys I started when DOS was the only OS. Can you guess my age! Vista was good only because it created Win 7. The one I really hated though was Windows Me because it kept crashing the computers I was building for customers.

Chris Locke (CS Computer Services), actually XP was only discontinued because Windows is greedy, but the same can be said of all big companies. I loved my XP computer and only upgraded because my hard drive crashed after 9 years and because I also needed an updated video card, I just got a new computer instead of a hard drive. It was more cost effective. I didn't like what I heard about Win 7 or 8 so after I got my new computer, I just updated right away to Win 10. It was nice to see that Windows went back to the XP format so I didn't need to learn a new os. My biggest complaint with Win 10 is that it is too open and automatic, I am still looking for ways to limit my system so only I have control over it.

Technics,
My 1st computer job was in 1967 - punch cards in, and punch cards out!

My XP still runs well - using Firefox & Avast (other browsers & Anti-Virus programs no longer working).

TK, I do love the RAM and storage that I now have. I agree with your analogy about comparing cars and hybrids.
