The Shareware Review People


Type of Program: System Utility
Supported Platforms: Windows 95, NT
Company Name: Prime Software
Version: 1.2
Price: $20
Installed Size: 1.6 MB


PrimeOut runs in a very small window (about 140 * 60) which has buttons for restarting, exiting, booting, and logging off windows with the click of a button. It also shows the time, date, and day of week, as well as giving the user an option to have the computer shut down or boot up at a specified time.

This application is something interesting to have sitting around, but not really worth the $20, I think. Its functionality is very limited, and its relatively huge size of 1.37 MB makes it a pain to download. Once you install it, it's not going anywhere, because there's no uninstaller. The shareware license agreement expires after 30 days, too. Hmph.

Developers Note: - PrimeOut can be uninstalled by selecting Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel. - The large file size is due to the fact that I included the VB 5 runtime files in the installation routine. - As for the 30 day evaluation period: Is 30 days not enough time to review PrimeOut? It's my understanding that 30 days is the industry standard and believe that 30 days is enough time to review the product.
