It turned out to be StyleWriter. I have heard from the company once so
far, but they didn't understand that I'd gotten my copy as a download
during their beta test - then paid full price to register it. They want
me to reinstall the CD (I don't have0 and send them the amchine code it
generates. Siiiiiiigh . . .. Well - hopefully my explanatory email
will bring better results.
As for Bullfighter - I tried installing it in Office 2007 on Win 7. It
didn't work, and now when I try to uninstall I get the error "cannot
open INSTALL.LOG file"
An email is on the way to them too.
