I installed Comfort myself, I had Comfort 1 before Comfigurator and you had to program with CCX (I think it was called) and pay for a software licence.
The first software for programming Comfort was called CS-Xpress.
That was replaced by Comfigurator, versions 1, 2 and now 3

The version that required a licence to use was probably Comfigurator 1

I installed my own Comfort II system,  and in fact due to my ComfortClient development I also have a second Comfort II development rig based in the training rig chassis.

Apart from changing the batteries under to the correct schedule the system otherwise has given me many faultless years of service and hopefully will continue to do so (oops now I've tempted fate! :)).

I have to disagree with the comment about PC's being less reliable as a platform though;  yes I agree that Comfort II should be the hub of everyone's system but IMHO the PC can also play a part, and a reliable part at that as a presentation front-end for Comfort and as an additional gateway device to other technologies that Comfort II doesn't serve yet via UCM's, especially now that we can wall mount tablets etc. I have a Atom based low power PC with a 256GB SSD that has been running 24x7 for 2+ years now that has no moving parts and no issues.  It is fiddling with software etc that make PC's unreliable IMHO and because people tend to do that a lot then it does potentially reduce reliability; setup and leave alone then it can be just as reliable.  The same reliability drops can still happen with dedicated hardware such as Comfort when firmware is updated;  no difference IMHO.  Nobody thinks of an xbox, playstation or Sky HD box as being a PC do they but they are built on the same PC architecture/components.

Agree Jules, 10-15 years ago the best option of a low power PC was a laptop, no SDD, Raspberry PI's etc. You can make a PC run and run its all about the software!
