For years there were CC versions up through 12.1 which did everything most people wanted. Then there was the all different version 1.0.2 which did little that most people wanted. Now the Broderbund site is offering a Calendar Creator Deluxe 12.2, touted as "Windows 10 Compatible" but with little other information.
Is 12.2 just a re-branded 1.02, or (we can hope) the original program updated to run on modern operating systems? Or yet a third, different program?
ORIGINAL: lem3 This announcement should be stuck to the top of both CC forums...
I am sure there will be a separate and new forum for 12.2. I agree - the word must get out. I noticed that there is no announcement even on the broderbund.com site which sells the program. A missed opportunity IMHO.
I don't expect to see new forums for CC 12.2, since this program seems to be a true incremental upgrade (and a wonderful thing that is), and not an entirely new program as the 2016 release was. For users, it should be similar to moving from CC 11 or 12 to 12.1. Users can continue to post in the Calendar Creator forums, where the answers to past questions are likely to be similar, and there's an established history of questions and answers. Posters should continue to use their version numbers in questions.
I also believe the Calendar Creator 2016 forums should remain in place, since there are users who will want assistance with the program. It is so dramatically different from Calendar Creator 12 and earlier that there's a reason to keep these forums separate.
Like you, I hope the word gets out to Calendar Creator users that the program they've known in the past is back.
The moon phases are there. It was one of the first things I checked when I installed the program. Nobody is happier about the return of Calendar Creator than the people who used the program up through v12.1 for years.
I do hope that Encore / Broderbund advertises it more and at least has something on their website about it. I only found out about this version because I saw someone wrote a note about CC 2016 and I was referencing them the forum for the 2016 version when I came across a message about 12.2.
That link takes you to the 2016 Calendar Creator release, based on the screenshot and "All New." The link is obsolete. Out of curiosity, I clicked "add to cart" from that link, and it gives a 404 screen. Both the Encore and Broderbund sites show CC12.2 for sale, and no sign of the 2016 product.
I'd also like to see 12.2 get the publicity it deserves, especially among former customers. They'll be able to see it if they go to the Encore site, and it'll become apparent over time to users of the forums. Many may have continued to use Calendar Creator 12.1 on Windows 10, like myself, and may still check the forums from time to time, even if they aren't in need of help.
