Hi there

If you are talking about the SPAM ads you see offering "OEM Software" at
a HUGELY discounted price, I do believe that these are actual pirated
copies or otherwise of questionable origin. You need to be careful with
these. I was working with someone that took this avenue only to discover
they picked up a nasty virus along the way.

Cheers... Rick :)

> Have you ever used OEM software, and is it fully functional? After spending nearly $2000 for a new Adobe Technical Communication Suite for a specific project, I discovered that the Captivate 5 fonts are not acceptable. I have to re-do a bunch of videos in Captivate 4, and I am hesitant to spend an additional $700 for an obsolete application that I will probably only use on the current project. Does anyone have any experience with OEM software in general, and Adobe Captivate 4 in particular? Ideas, suggestions, insights?
