A couple of years ago I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from Drinking Mates 4.2 which I had used for years without any trouble. However there are apparent conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.

To make matters worse Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatable with several other applications, such as Lads Night Out 3.1, Motor Racing 2.2 and Playboy 6.1. Successive versions of Girlfriend have proved no better. A shareware beta-programme Party Girl 2.1, had many bugs and left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.

Eventually I tried to run Girlfriend 2.0 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same time only to discover that when these two systems detected each other they caused severe damage to all my hardware. Sensing a way out I upgraded from Girlfriend 2.0 to Fiannce 1.0 only to discover that the product had a limited life and had to upgrade to Wife 1.0.

I did this because whilst Wife 1.0 uses up all available resources it does come bundled with Free Sex Plus and Cleanhouse 2000. However I discovered that Wife 1.0 can be very unstable and costly to run. For example any mistakes I made were automatically stored in Wife 1.0's memory and could not be deleted, they would resurface months later. Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary Explorer and E mail porn filter and can launch without warning Photostrop and Whigezip. These latter products have no help files and require you to guess the problem yourself.

Additional costly problems are that the Wife 1.0 bundle, that came with the original system needs regularly updating, requiring Shop Shoe Browser Pro for new attachments and Hairstyle Express needs to be re installed every other week. It also conflicts with some new games I wanted to try stating they are illegal operations.

When Wife 1.0 attaches itself to my MSMoney programme it often crashes or runs the system dry. Wife 1.0 also has a rather annoying pop up called Mother in Law 1.0 which can't be turned off. Recently I have been tempted to try Mistress 2007 but I understand there could be problems: if Wife 1.0 detects the presence of Mistress 2007 it will delete all MSMoney files before un installing itself.

Has anybody tried Wife 2.0 if so can I have some feedback on possible problems or should I just run Motor Racing 3.00 and Playboy 7.00?

I had more problems, so i sent off a email to Microsoft tec support......


A while ago I upgraded to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources.
In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Foot ball 5.0 , Hunting and Fishing 7.5 , and Golfing 3.6 and Beer Drinker 9.12 are becoming restricted and often get the message " You are not authorised to access this programme" .

I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0 , but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0 Please help!

Troubled User.....

Dear Troubled User:
This is a very common problem that users complain about.

Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING !!! It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0 . It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed.

You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony/Child Support . I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.

The best course of action is to enter the command C:APOLOGIZE! because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway.

Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance . Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0 , Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2 .

However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5 . Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0 !

WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3 . This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system!

Best of luck,

Tech Support

Nag Nag 9.5 - I knew Carly had pc experience somewhere...

Anyway, I went ahead and did some debugging on Wife 1.0 and found the following bit:

create table money
If money >= 50,000
   Then wife.mood = happy and wife.location = mall
Else if money < 50,000 and > 1,000
   Then wife.mood = content and wife.location = 'general store'
Else money < 1,000
   Then wife.mood = poor and husband.location = 'bar'

Let x =  0
Let y = 'women in life'

If job + secretary = y
  Then x = x+1
If wife != 0
  Then x=x+1
Print x

Case 1
If x = 1
   Then select * from money

Case 2
If x >= 2
  Then kill.husband -now
(Not even appropriate code, but it's 4:30am and I can't think to make it more legit :))
