Really...? Mountain Lion? It's 2014 and that came out in July of 2012. If it takes two years to support an OS release it's time to hang it up.

Good Lord! I used this back in the Mac OS 8 days in 1997 and it still looks the same.

The best installer for mac! A must-have tool for developers! Very costumizable and fast, ideal for all software companies. Only the price is a is a bit too high, but the product was great!

As an end user, if I download an application that has a VISE installer, it goes straight into the trash. VISE is a black box that demands root privileges to do... what? There's no way of finding out in advance what it's going to install or what else it's going to do besides installing, and no way to control it. An utterly hostile, Windows-like experience.

A VISE installer is a bit like the glue of a label that does not easily come off something you've just bought: annoying, and a certain way of finding out a company does not care about its customers.

VISE installers are vile pieces of crap that provide no easy way of seeing exactly what files are going to be installed. The interface is clumsy and has not significantly evolved since 1997. Some installers quit every other application before running - what is that about? Others crap files with bad permissions all over my disk, with no easy way of fixing those permissions. Please.

VISE is a practical joke Mindvision has been playing on the Mac community for too long. If you want me to take your product seriously and really, really require an installer, use Apple's.

To prevent users from hiding the installer interface, VISE X installers now disable the "Hide" menu item, and do not support use of Command+H.

Bad idea, MindVision.

Why on earth would you disable hiding the installer (command-h) on OS X?

Apple's installer (and software update utility) support hiding which allows you to continue work in another program without having the installer potentially in the way - courtesy of OS X's famously protected memory architecture.

My Mom alwaays said if you can't say something good about someone, dont say anything at all. Thank goodness it does not apply to inanimate objects, especially one that is TERRIBLE....!! Why anyone would throw away $275.00 for this lousy program is beyond me. I am forever having problems with programs loaded with VISE. Give me your money, at least I will smile at you and put one on your face.........lol Well to put it in today's terms, the program SUCKS....!! and is over rated if rated at all....? SUCKS BIG TIME, dont buy it.......!! Sorry VISE, but if it were a good product I would I would never have to write this commment to save others their hard earned money.
