Monday: 7.22Free is available

Always wanted to use this PIM because it has E-Mail integrated.
But the E-Mail function lacks too many obvious functions, like
blocking external web-content.

Starts with an upgrade ad every other start, does anyone know how to disable? Must click skip to go to program.

This version does not run on XP. The last version that did is 3.38.02, which can be accessed from sourceforge through the download page on the pwsafe.org site. There was some suggestion last year that 3.40 might be fixed to run on XP, but not so far, it seems

Installed on my harddrive and tested the portable version again, under Windows 7 64 bit.
Settings and data are now written in the application folder.
The user profile folder contains an empty folder C:\Users\my_name\AppData\Roaming\MSD_Soft

Ennovy on 2015-04-10 09:31

MSD Organizer uses the folder I mentioned (C:\Users\my_name\AppData\Roaming\MSD_Soft)for temp files.
The files in that folder are deleted on exit.

It doesn't even run and hangs if you don't allow it to connect to the Internet (at least the first time). Tried three times and dumped it for good after about one minute.
