    I purchased this 10/07. It worked ‘okay’ for what it was. When v4 came out I upgraded (FREE LIFETIME UPGRADES – right on their site). I discovered there were BUGS in the HELP system. After being ignored by ‘tech support’ I stated this fact on their forum. The moderator (an Axialis employee) acknowledged the issue saying it would be fixed in the next release. The next release came but still no fix. Then 4.2 came and still no fix. I related this on the forum again after which they promptly deleted my forum logon, AND (I discovered later) my ACCOUNT logon – so I can no longer get the updates I PAID them for. To date all requests for help have been completely ignored. All I can say is – don’t complain about anything because this FOREIGN company (based in FRANCE) will screw you knowing there isn’t a thing in the world you (being 5,500 miles away in America) can do.
