Here are some notes and observations from recent users of PD Pro 5:

My daughter is 12 and has been able to figure out your program without any help from my wife and me.  She had previously used (MS) Paint but found it too limiting.  It is amazing what she has been able to accomplish with your program.  We are getting the word out.  And about the only thing that tops it is your personal support.
-Eric R.

"got it, installed it, and it is running like a charm. I like it a lot!"

"I downloaded everything.  There was no issue on getting it installed onto the XP version of Windows-the .Net plug in was easy enough to understand and find.  I'll play with the program a little in the next week and get a feel for her and start actually getting serious on using it on some postworking for the 3D stuff."

"That installed seamlessly and works well. My new system is X64 XP.  I like the interface a lot. It feels good. I’ll have a play with it later."

"(...), I am thoroughly enjoying using your Dogwaffle software. It's great fun to play with and it's one of those programmes that just puts a smile on your face everytime you use it."

Ciao! really think pdpro is one of the best creative  applications around (a bit complex, but great)....So I'm happy to support.. If you have a press relase, i would be happy to publish on my website


"I downloaded PD Pro 5 and don't need the download link any longer. Thank you very much. PD Pro 5 looks and feels great. Congratulations."

 But honestly:  Is every installation a success?

...of course not, with so many versions and flavors of Windows, from XP to Vista to Windows 7 and 32- as well as 64- bit combos, Virtual machines on Macs etc... there are bound to be some surprises. Not every installation is flawless. If you encounter "unknown error" or other challenges with UAC and such, missing MMX support on your system, etc..., see our Frequently asked questions at F.A.Q.
