InstallAware Email Thread ... Is this for real?

I came across a very interesting email thread that is really far out there. I almost want to believe it's a fake but having dealt with InstallAware and Michael Nesmith in the past, I can only conclude that it's legit.

You can read the exchange here at CodeProject.com.

I do hope Candice will become aware of this post and confirm or deny the authenticity of that thread. Assuming of course she gives a rats ass.

While it's a great read (thanks Chris!), it's absolutely impossible that this would be real...

Sadly, it's for real.

So much spite from that Candice clown.

Perhaps they're extra bitter due to about to become a victim of the recession?

We can only hope.

Unfortunately, I doubt it's fake. That is InstallAware for you.

This is absolutely real, and (unfortunately) very much representative of the people at InstallAware.

I also have very bad experiance from from InstallAware. I was banned from there forums becuase I reported a bug that I was not able to describe at 100%. I was right, there was a bug but it was not exactly what I described from them. They told me I was banned since I wasted there resources since I should have gived them a 100% description of the bug. :)

here are 2 links to other threads on there forums that shows what InstallAware realy stands for.....

We had a similar problem with InstallAware. Unbelievable. I asked a question and they told me I should "go to hell". Of course, I purchased another VERY GOOD product (Google for software installation and you'll find it).

And the we are "Now Second Largest Setup Toolkit with Discontinuation of Wise Products" is a lie.

InstallAware sucks!

Same here. I asked InstallAware two questions, I reported a (serious) bug and received "You have now been banned from all access to InstallAware". Heeee?

InstallAware IS THE WORST COMPANY IN THE WORLD.

I Googled for "installation system" and bought a product from one of their competitors (with top notch service). Rene
