What works

The installer works fine, and the program starts as long as MFC42 is installed.

I downloaded PCMark Vantage - a 700MB file - and it was both fast and worked. The interface appears to work perfectly aside from the occasional flash as a list item refreshes.

What does not

The program will not launch without MFC42.dll being installed.

The drop box's border changes a little if it is clicked, but that's really a minor issue.


What was not tested

Everything other than a regular download with default settings.

Additional Comments

I selected the Gold rating, as FDM 3.0 requires MFC42.dll. Sorry I didn't have time to try all of the features. Also, FDM is open source now under the GPL; I didn't select open source by mistake. ^^

Fails to Start After First Run

This application works acceptably the first time it is run after installation, but subsequent attempts to start it fail.

Please use the latest 3.8 RC version, which runs flawlessly out of the box.
