Forgive me if I sound frustrated. I am.
I just bought, installed, and registered the latest version of ZoneAlarm Security Suite. It was going great until I realized I could no longer connect to the Nintendo WFC service through the Nintendo Wifi USB adapter. Of course, only after searching for a solution do I find out this is a well-known, oft-referenced, and totally unresolvable problem. I suppose I should have done my research beforehand, but how was I supposed to know this could be an issue?
The last complaint about this problem seems to have been made 11 months ago, so maybe there's been progress since then. Anybody have a solution, please? Nintendo's site lists ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite as the sole program with which it is incompatible, requiring it be fully uninstalled, not merely disabled. (I wonder who **bleep**ed them off.)
And I can't tell you how unamusing it is to hear that the free versions of ZoneAlarm are able to work around this problem, but the ZoneAlarm I paid good money for cannot. I feel like an *****. No wonder nobody pays for software anymore.
So is there a patch? And if not, how long you think until the developers make one? I can wait if there's a fix on the horizon. Otherwise I have no clue what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
