postComment: "When I first bought my Le Grand Robert & Collins ($100!), it worked fine, with the icon in my dock, quick, silent, responsive. I only had to insert the original CD-Rom periodically to confirm ownership.\n\nWhen I upgraded to Lion, however, the dock icon suddenly had a black question mark over it, and I could only make the dictionary work by putting the CD-ROM into my iMac's slot and keeping it there. This meant that every search for a word took a hell of a long time as the CD whirred and clinked until it found what I was looking for. This was all such a time-consuming business that I just stopped using the dictionary completely.\n\nI emailed the company from their web site, but all I got was a boiler-plate response about how their product supports all versions of the Mac OS. Untrue.\n\nThen about a month ago (August 2012), I took a chance and inserted the CD-ROM. Bingo! It worked as it had originally, i.e. as it's supposed to.\n\nNow I'm going to upgrade to Mountain Lion, and I know that I'll have to put the damn thing aside again because it won't be compatible. That sucks big time because it's a great dictionary, just poorly supported.\n\nI'm going to send this comment to and see if I get a decent reply. \n\nCroisons les doigts!"
