Can we please put a stop to this Install on Demand madness? I know it is very cool that it will install some template only when I need it. I understand that this is very slick. I get it. But please stop it!

 

Every time I start Visio 2003 it asks me for the CD-ROM. I have no idea why, but it wants it. The problem isn’t that I lack the CD, it is that I have too many of them (MSDN, Action Pack, Retail…). And not one of them has the damn file this thing wants. The best part is that if I click “Cancel” it loads Visio anyway. If this file is so damn important than how does it run at all? It acts like my 2 year old, passionately demanding something that it has absolutely no need for. And sometimes, also like my 2 year old, it needs to be told “no” (or in this case, “cancel”) multiple times before it gets the point.

 

Hard drive space is cheep guys. This technology may be cool but you are 5 years late bringing it to the table. With the price of disk space these days, just let me install the whole damn thing and leave me be already!

 

I need to find a wall to bang my head against…
