    Have you experienced any program crashes or glitches? I’ve been using this plug-in since v3.0 and have always had issues. I’m currently using 5.0 with Outlook 2007 and have decided to remove it completely. I was hoping v 6.0 would be better but have read elsewhere that it too suffers from stability issues. -Thanks for any info.

    I never have had real glitches. It has been a long time great product for me. However, I also do not use Outlook 2007. I still use Outlook 2003 or XP. So, I am not sure just what to recommend for 2007. I like 2007, but that is probably the root issue there. I personally still recommend the product, but I again, would be careful if using 2007. I will have to look into the issues with v6.0.

    I have always had trouble with Franklin Covey software and it really makes me sad because I love using the paper version of the organizer. I just got 6.0 and it has done nothing but crash since I installed it. I’m looking for a fix now. I think Franklin Covey’s software in general is unstable.

    I just tried to load Plan Plus 6 to work with Outlook 2007 and it never worked. I asked for tech help and ended up ruining my Outlook files by following their instructions. I asked for a refund and they won’t refund downloaded software. They’re right, I’m wrong. They win, I lose. They failed to “seek first to understand.”

  • C Matias Says:

    Same issues here. Enable to run Planplus 5.0 on outlook 2007 SP2. Bought the V6 upgrade, but outlook 2007 always crashs at start.
    I’m going back to Clearcontext.

  • Paul Says:

    I am using Outlook 2007, vista, and Plan Plus 6.0 and it constantly freezes when I try to start outlook. When I remove Plan Plus outlook starts great. Does anyone have a fix?

  • Darren Says:

    I just bought v 6.0 and loaded it. I’m running Outlook 2003. Outlook crashed the second it loaded, and crashes every time I restart Outlook. Seems like a piece of junk to me. I sent FC tech support an e-mail, but from what I’m reading on the web, this seems like it’s going to end horribly for me.

  • pd Says:

    No fix. I actually have personally even stopped using this software and will likely remove this post later if they do not step it up.
