James I already disclosed my operating system in the first thread. i'm using a 2 year old I-MAC quad cor processor with 4 gig of ram and I'm running the latest Yosimite OS. I do realize that i'm running a Beta version and I think it pretty sad that it has taken this long to even get a beta version. I realize that all new software has bugs but this software has been very dissapointing to say the least. I hate to say this but i think im just going to go and invest in a different software, I've been playing around with this entirely too long. i keep thinking ok its going to get better but it hasnt in two and a half years. I guess you get what you pay for!!!!
