    I know the feeling. I loaded the disk that came in the paperwork box with my kit on my lap top and downloaded from the website the one on my desktop...what a difference.

    The disk is cr** even with the patches and updates!

    However, the website down load is decent.

    I unfortunately have submitted either shows or supply orders from each so am fighting doing a synch....even though I know I'll need to.

    The disk does not accurately update product lists...it's just not good (although I wouldn't know this if I didn't have the better version on my desktop)....just being lazy...

    PP issues

    Every time that I have ever had an issue with PP, tech has done everything they can to help me! The last time I had a problem (I couldn't get certain reports to come up and got an error reading), Eric worked on the problem and called me back since I was calling from overseas. Unfortunately for me my files were corrupted. I had to start completely over. I still have the corrupted files on disk but my PP started at my 150th show! I can if I choose re-input all the information so that I can access the report I wanted but at this point, I juts don't want to sit at the computer doing all the inputing!


    ANYWAY...tech is AWESOME...call them!!

    Have a Pampered Day!!

    Monica:

    Do you use Norton Anti-virus for virus protection? Apparently, there was a problem with the new version of PP and Norton and tech support sent out an email of how to solve the problem. I just worked with one of my team-mates today, so if Norton is your virus scan, let me know and I can tell you what I did to help her.
