What software version are you running?
currently running the latest version of GirlFriend and I've been having some
problems lately. I've been running the same version of DrinkingBuddies 1.0 forever
as my primary application, and all the GirlFriend releases I've tried have always
conflicted with it.
hear that DrinkingBuddies won't crash if GirlFriend is run in background mode
and the sound is turned off. But I'm embarrassed to say I can't find the switch
to turn the sound off. I just run them separately, and it works okay.
also seems to have a problem co-existing with my Golf program, often trying
to abort Golf with some sort of timing incompatibility.
probably should have stayed with GirlFriend 1.0, but I thought I might see better
performance from GirlFriend 2.0. After months of conflicts and other problems,
I consulted a friend who has had experience with GirlFriend 2.0. He said I probably
didn't have enough cache to run GirlFriend 2.0, and eventually it would require
a Token Ring to run properly. He was right - as soon as I purged my cache, it
after that, I installed GirlFriend 3.0 beta. All the bugs were supposed to be
gone, but the first time I used it, it gave me a virus anyway. I had to clean
out my whole system and shut down for a while.
very cautiously upgraded to GirlFriend 4.0. This time I used a SCSI probe first
and also installed a virus protection program. It worked okay for a while until
I discovered that GirlFriend 1.0 was still in my system.
tried running GirlFriend 1.0 again with GirlFriend 4.0 still installed, but
GirlFriend 4.0 has a feature I didn't know about that automatically senses the
presence of any other version of GirlFriend and communicates with it in some
way, which results in the immediate removal of both versions.
version I have now works pretty well, but there are still some problems. Like
all versions of GirlFriend, it is written in some obscure language I can't understand,
much less reprogram. Frankly I think there is too much attention paid to the
look and feel rather than the desired functionality. Also, to get the best connections
with your hardware, you usually have to use gold-plated contacts. And I've never
liked how GirlFriend is totally "object-oriented."
year ago, a friend of mine upgraded his version of GirlFriend to GirlFriendPlus
1.0, which is a Terminate and Stay Resident version of GirlFriend. He discovered
that GirlFriendPlus 1.0 expires within a year if you don't upgrade to Fiancee
1.0. So he did, but soon after that, he had to upgrade to Wife 1.0, which he
describes as a huge resource hog. It has taken up all his space, so he can't
load anything else.
of the primary reasons he decided to go with Wife 1.0 was because it came bundled
it turns out the resource allocation module of Wife 1.0 sometimes prohibits
access to FreeSexPlus, particularly the new Plug-Ins he wanted to try. On top
of that, Wife 1.0 must be running on a well warmed-up system before he can do
anything. Although he did not ask for it, Wife 1.0 came with MotherInLaw which
has an automatic pop-up feature he can't turn off.
told him to try installing Mistress 1.0, but he said he heard if you try to
run it without first uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete MSMoney files
before doing the uninstall itself. Then Mistress 1.0 won't install anyway because
of insufficient resources.
