The freeware version can not password protect your database and has no data encryption

Holy Smokes, Batman, but that applications is UUUUGGGGGLLLLYY! I'll stick to Essential PIM or even Total Organizer.

The download link is to the english version, but now there is also a french and a dutch version available at http://www.msdsoft.com/eng/download.htm

I agree with ii.mull. Essential PIM looks much much better!

RĂ¼diger 2007-07-14 04:54

I'm working with EssentialPIM too. That is a very good Program.

Besides the lack of security in the freeware version (password protection, encryption), there are also limits set on the records in the different databases:100 contacts,etc...But it is a good PIM if that does not bother you.

Ennovy 2007-07-14 23:17

2decomp: the limitation of 100 records is ONLY in the TRIAL SHAREWARE version!

Essential PIM has the standard modules, but this one has a lot more to offer. Take a closer look here: http://www.msdsoft.com/eng/products/agenda/features.htm

I have used the Essential PIM, and it is very nice, good piece, but in this you can find an real dates vs. planned ones, you can plan your budget connected with tasks (birthdays+presents costs, for example), etc.. What I found really unnecessary are health database and music.. But, you are not forced to use them if you don't want.. Interface is ugly, but the functionality is good.. De gustibus non disputandum!

This program is sure features packed. However, the problem of features packed program is it require good UI. I hope the developer can improve this.

The application is horrible. After clicking on EXE file it gave a message something like "Installing in dir XYZ". What is installation process for portable software should be? Having loaded it came up with some kind expired alert messages that I could not get rid. It didn't allow me to escape this alert. Only choice I had was to kill the process from task manager. So, I even didn't have a chance to look through this application. Horrible design if only choice to stop application was to kill process.

From the screenshot, this program looks too busy with all sorts of windows. Why can't authors make things look more organized? Even if its free, don't people have pride in their work?

Apu 2010-01-20 15:38

One look at the screenshot for this app. led me to hurl. What a GUI travesty!

webfork 2010-01-26 04:32

The UI has been cleaned up in the last few versions and there are a startling number of features, tools, and customizations underneath. Notably an included basic spreadsheet and wordpad-type program are both easy to use and impressive. I'm still exploring this software.

I encourage first time users to click "options" and uncheck "Dairy, Property, Budget, Health", and "Music" as these are all pro-only tools. Then skip past some of the initial popups meant to demonstrate the program and read the help file that pops up.

Yeah its rubbish. The idiots have added a large calendar which is outdated by years, so you have to sit and acknowledge you missed fictive meetings years ago.
AND it writes stuff to the registry even though its supposedly portable and to %appdata%! Should be removed f from this database at once.

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

v12.6

Ennovy 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.

v12.6

dot 2015-11-26 14:44

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.

v12.8
