Has anyone else tried this yet?
I installed the trial, just to have a look and it seems to be working OK but there's no sign of it existing anywhere on my machine.
The search function doesn't recognise it.
It's not listed with Revo Uninstaller, nor is it listed under 'Programmes and updates' in the control panel.
If I right click on the Icon in the start menu, there's no option to 'open file location.'
There's an option to uninstal it via that right click which does remove it but it's almost instantaneous, as if I'd simply deleted the icon. No indication that the programme's being removed.
I'm not too concerned as I dare say I'll be removing it anyway, once the trial's over but I'm stumped as to just where it is!
Any ideas?

Just downloaded the trial. It doesn't show in control panel under programmes, but does show in all apps from the start menu. I got the first version to see if it could wean me off of adobe......it didn't. I'll give v2 a go.

Thanks.
Mine shows in that list but that's the only place.
Does your's show up in the programmes folder on your 'C' drive?

The answer is no, but that seems to be as it should be.

Thanks.
That kind of explains it.
Why though would it instal itself up in a hidden folder to which I don't have access?

Apparently; see above, that is how it should be but it's the only programme that I've ever encountered that installed itself in that way.

Right!
I've accessed it but it's still a puzzle as to why Serif decided to make it so difficult.
