KrystalShaper

JCrystalSoft,
2012


KrystalShaper (KRS) is not an upgrade of JCrystal (JCR), but a separate program though a certain overlap in functionality and GUI design exists between both programs. Since KrystalShaper is written in a Windows programming language it will also start up faster than JCrystal.

Windows Vista/Windows7 Compatibility

JCrystal

Since this is a Java program the Windows Aereo look will change to the Windows Basic look and the gadget sidebar may flicker. It is best to install JCrystal in a user folder and not under "Program Files", otherwise one has to run it "as administrator", since Windows may prohibit programs from writing to folders under the "Program Files" directory.   

KrystalShaper

No known problems. It is written with the multi-user setup in mind and uses a dedicated user folder.
