NOW AVAILABLE: WIFE 1.0 UNEDITED VERSION! (FWD)
Last year a friend of mine upgraded from Girlfriend 1.0 to Wife 1.0 and found that it's a memory hog, leaving very little system resources available for other applications. He is now noticing
that Wife 1.0 is also spawning Child Processes which are further consuming valuable resources. No mention of this particular phenomena was included in the product brochure of documentation,
though other users have informed him that this is to be expected due to the nature of the application.
Not only that, Wife 1.0 installs itself such that it is always launched at system
initialization, where it can monitor all other system activity, He's finding some applications such as Poker night 10.3, Beer bash 2.5 and Pub night 7.0 are no longer able to run in the system
at all - crashing the system when selected (even though they always worked fine before).
During installation, wife 1.0 provides no option as to the installation of undesired
Plug-ins such as Mother in-law 55.8 and Brother in-law beta release. Also, system performance seems to diminish with each passing day.
Some features he would like to see in the upcoming Wife 2.0: .
A "Don't remind me again" button.
An install shield feature that allows Wife 2.0 be installed
with the option to uninstall at anytime with out the loss of cache and other system resources.
An option to run the network driver in promiscuous mode, which would allow the system
hardware probe feature to be much more useful.
I myself decide to avoid the headaches associated with Wife 1.0 by
sticking with Girlfriend 2.0. Even here, however, I found many
problems. Apparently you cannot install Girlfriend 2.0 on top of Girlfriend 1.0. You must uninstall Girlfriend 1.0 first. Other users say this is a long standing bug that I should have known
about. Apparently the versions of Girlfriend have conflicts over shared use of the I/O port. You'd think they would have fixed such a stupid bug by now. To make matters worse, the uninstall
program for Girlfriend1.0 doesn't work very well, leaving undesirable traces of the application in the system.
Another thing - all versions of Girlfriend continually pop up little
annoying messages about the advantages of upgrading to Wife 1.0.
*********** BUG WARNING********************
Wife 1.0 has an undocumented bug. if you try to install Mistress 1.1 Before uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete MSMoney
files before doing the uninstall itself. Then Mistress 1.1 will refuse to install, claiming insufficient resources.
***********BUG WORK AROUNDS **************
To avoid this
bug, try installing Mistress 1.1 on a different system and Never run any file transfer applications such as Laplink 6.0. Also, beware of similar shareware applications that have been known to
carry viruses that may affect Wife 1.0. Another solution would be to run Mistress 1.1 via UseNet provider under an anonymous name. Here again, beware of the viruses which can accidentally
be down loaded from UseNet.
