I was a beta tester of this software.  When the last beta release crashed just as you suggest, I reported it to
Jandel.  They told me that some other beta testers had had similar problems, and they were investigating.

After a long period of silence, I received the first production release with a letter thanking me for testing it.
When I reported that this version crashed when I opened an image, Jandel told me it was the fault of my hardware, that
only 1% of users experience this problem and they weren't interested anymore.

As I have other software for this purpose, I simply uninstalled my copy.  Until then, my experiences with Jandel had
been quite positive.  SigmaPlot is among the best scientific plotting packages available.

I had heard that SigmaGel was selling well and was gining user acceptence.  However, based on my experience, I'd
make sure it works in my system before investing in it.
