Re: Retaining Wall software survey

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The last time this issue came up about 10 people replied. Eight of them said
they used and liked "Retain Pro" (or Enercalc's older version of it), 1 said
the choose IES's "QuickRWall", and one said it had to many uncorrected
error's but didn't go into any detail.  Unless Javier Encinas wants to
expand on his error statement the numbers favor Retain Pro.  I have only
used it once so I haven't included myself in the totals, but with the manual
and handbook it compared well my textbooks.

I thought Retain Pro was full of Bugs?

flame war here...)
