Do I have to pay for WDM 18 before I can try the beta?

I downloaded and installed it but it refused to come up citing a problem with the dongle.

The first time I installed I had my Anti-Virus turned on I think that caused a problem.

The 2nd time I installed I had my Anti-Virus turned off, but I got the same error.

Oh, now I see this on the web page:

"Caution:
You must own a registered English or International version of WinDev Mobile 18, before downloading the module proposed on this page."

Really? In all my time as software user I have NEVER, EVER had to pay to use beta software.

The whole purpose of beta software is to introduce the product to the community and allow the community to help find bugs and report them. Just awful.

First time I have seen beta from PC-Soft and I was thinking, oh, finally, they are getting with the program. Just another disappointment. It always comes with a timelock so you can only use it for X number of days during the beta testing period.

Who knows, maybe it is a language translation error. Whatever it is this is NOT beta software.

Hi Paul,
1 - definitely yes!
2+3+4 - if you haven't puchased an upgrade to 18 it will not work.

Any time you wish! Upgrade from v17 is 399,- Euros (no-package version) + shipping & handling if you wish to have printed manuals.
Kind regards,

Hi Paul

"In all my time as software user I have NEVER, EVER had to pay to use beta software."

Well, Wx products are a little different: you can only buy them in beta state -- they'll never go "GOLD"...:rp:

I have resolved in my mind that what PC-SOFT calls a beta is what other companies would call a pre-release. So it is a translation error. :)

I coughed up the cash and purchased the 'pre-release' upgrades to WebDev 18 and WinDev Mobile 18.

I hope it works!!

Hi Paul,

Indeed, I think this is a translation error. On pcsoft.fr you can read in French: "22/04/13 - Version anglaise. - La version 18 PV en langue anglaise est maintenant disponible."

Which is: "22/04/13 - English Version. - Version 18 PS in English is now available."

PV: pré-vente / prévente
PS: pre-sale / presale

At least it is announced as a pre-sale version on the French website.

Best regards,
Alexandre Leclerc
