This question is generally directed towards the 'much appreciated' "Senior Contributors" or "Guru's" of this forum, but I'd be grateful to anyone replying to my question!!
Well, I've been surfing around the forum recently, at least since the release of ZASS v8, and was pretty surprised by the influx of problems posted by users regarding their experience with an upgrade or installation of the latest version.
I'm quite aware that most users, more often than not, will post about problems and not so much about their success (which is why this forum is here I suppose), but I can't remember seeing a similar situation where so many people are having difficulties with a new release of ZASS...
Mind you, I'm sure that regular users or guru's etc, may have seen this occur before, but in my time on this forum it is quite a new experience.
Which is why I aim this question to them,
"Should I go ahead with an installation/upgrade of ZASS v8.0.020.000, or wait just a little longer to avoid any complications?"
I have used ZASS since v6 and have had no problems to date with the installation or use of the product and I cannot see myself using another product anytime soon! I'm VERY happy with ZASS and will be renewing my subscription when the time calls for it in a few months, new release or not! (You could say I'm extremely loyal when I find a product that serves me well!)
I just want to know whether this is an unusually problematic release (which will be sorted out shortly I'm sure), or whether it is quite a normal occurance to see a large amount of users adjusting to a new/major release?
I'm sure some replies will be saying "It's totally up to you, the user", but I would love to hear what others, especially long term users, recommend.
Thank you to all in advance and I appreciate any input contributed...
