Guest Pros: It appears to work with ease.
Cons: Not totally stable (at least with Win 7/64), no PDF manual, tiny little graphs that can't be expanded, updates take forever because they can't find the program. The program feels old and antiquated. Try WinISD for free - it's only in alpha mode as of this writing, but it is nice.
