1.0 out of 5 stars This was a terrible purchase! April 15, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I purchased this product over a month ago, and after spending over 10 hours trying to get it to work... I gave up! My husband is an IT specialist, and not only couldn't get it to work, but we couldn't get our money back. We spoke to the encore specialist by email, but we were never able to speak to someone directly. Amazon says they will not give money back for software, but I must say... I will never purchase anything from either company again. I attempted to have the disc sent to me... and believe me I spent many hours on the phone with the company. I don't expect you to print this review... I just wanted to let Amazon know that I am very saddened that such a small ticket item could not have been replaced with the actual hard disc since the download did not work. What a shame that know one was willing to help us at Encore. Amazon has it's own rules, and I understand that... but if you are going to market products from another company and they don't stand behind their products... it doesn't give you or them a good name. I have spent many dollars on Amazon in the past, and I'm sorry to say that I am very put off that I had to spend so much wasted time getting the product to work... and it still doesn't!!!!!!

I would love to have a return call, refund or I would really like to have the hard copy disc......
Sorry I don't have nicer things to say... but it was a very poor purchase...and by the way ... the product itself was highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't install on my version of windows March 15, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This is outdated. I have windows 7/8. This listing didn't specify which operating system it worked on (unless I missed it somewhere), but it doesn't install at all. Wish I could get a refund for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless. January 16, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This product does not work. At all.
It is NOT the fault of Amazon... the fault is directly put onto the Encore company that owns the download.
I was (after much searching around online) finally able to find a contact phone number to actually speak to someone after a very long hold time, and she was able to help me briefly - in which the program opened and ran correctly for a few minutes, but then after closing the program - it completely disappeared from my desktop and when i went to open it from the Start menu- it gave me the same registration/activation problems all over again.
NOT WORTH PURCHASING. I'm extremely disappointed - because I was hoping to be able to share the Mavis that I grew up with my kids.
I'm also disappointed in myself for being in such a hurry to download a Mavis product - I failed to look at the ratings here first... Lesson learned!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed April 10, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
After spending several hours trying to see why it wont install I gave up. This product is absolutely a disappointment. I uninstalled and tried to reinstall it at least 4 times. It still didn't work. Don't spend your money on it. Not worth it.
