I have 31 licenses for Koingo software, I have been a customer for many years, since 2008. I personally have never had a problem with them, I have had cause to contact support and always had feed back, and a resolution to the problem.

I find it sad that MacUpdate, and Koingo, both don't just agree to disagree.

This past week end Macupdate was also not so innocent selling it's own software, and not bothering to answer all the questions, that were asked. As a sub note the software is ropy at best, it tells me updates for software like camera bag area available, but they are not?? But for $10

Come on guys, we all make mistakes, but it's how we deal with the mistakes that make up better people. I thought the whole mac community spirit was better that calling each other names, or posting silly comments at the top of pages, which is no better than a form or censorship, once you go down that road, it could lead any where…

Shake hands and go your separate ways, thats what was always told to me.

The Software is great for the price I paid, some 39 Dollars.

I have had the chance to use the software from work and took the opportunity to purchase it, as it's a great little addition to the First Aid kit, one of those software pieces, you know your going to need, not every day, but when you, need it, it's always useful.

I think the ease of use is also worth the money, it's stable, and so far has never let me down, I also built, my own Crash USB Kit, with other pieces of software I might need, very handy.

if you have a version of TechTools, the upgrade path for this software is also very good

This is a copy of the mail to the company...

Hi I tried to register a copy of software I just bought from Mupdate, but your stupid web site keeps defaulting to German while I live there and I'm English or better for you to understand I'm ENGLISH, which means exactly the same for other foreigners who live in various parts of the world, which does exist, trust me. Coming to a web page that presumes while I live in a country that I must speak the language, is just a pain in the proverbial.

I just bought a copy(upgrade) from MuPromo, and I now wish I had not bothered, who in your firm went to all the trouble to make it a complicated as possible to get a key for version 6, you should sack them, there are plenty of people who are qualified in security to help you not get hacked or have serials floating around the web, I know of no software at all that is trouble free, in this area.

Thanks for making it so hard to update, unless some one sends me a how to get your serial easy I just won't bother updating, and I'll next time give a sum of money to a charity so it would be better spent

This is with out any question my number 1 utilities tool. And I'm guilty I have not donated. I have never, never had any issues with this software. Every time I buy a replacement drive for a PowerBook, this software does the job, bloomin marvelous.

And it just gets better!

The license key can be seen when you purchase the software, it is on the screen after you confirm the purchase, and just before you download. You need to relax, and maybe take a hint, I always print out the confirmation of the purchase, this page is important incase you have any queries regarding the purchase.

On the whole I find the software great, there are subtile differences between the various virtualization software, I'm not in any camp I find them all good at what they do, help me run windows in a contained area.

And as PC games are 10$ or 10€ the single purchase of this makes the software pay for it's self as opposed to the over priced Mac games that are on the market. I have been able to play Settler Age of kings in the VMware, VMware, do a deal with a bunch of PC games companies, and produce a great deal, combo package, VMware, plus a selection of games, would save me going to the shops every other month ;-) and trawling the basement bucket, for games. Any way I digress.

Great software, does what it's supposed to do, and simply put, works.
