||Strengths: Fantastic Features with Excellent Support
Weaknesses: Need a little bit time to set up.
Details: Megabb Forum software definitely an excellent software for you. Before this, I was looking for something like phpBB forum. But for windows server, Megabb simply the best. The support team are very dedicated, patient and helpful. It comes with good control on user for administrator as well as moderator. Highly recommended!

||Strengths: Wonderfully easy setup, fully customizable, and plenty of available modifications/API's
Weaknesses: Online documentation for admins could be better, but most is fairly intuitive.
Details: I've run this board now for nearly a year, after searching for 6 months with my 'trial group' of my site's users. We tested board after board, but nothing compared in terms of ease of use, features, and layout. As a bonus to me, the administration side was great as well. The best part, is it's totally free, but I registered my version for $35 to remove the copyright notice. Definitely worth every cent!

||Strengths: Written in ASP, has a threaded view, easy to install, runs on MS Access or MS SQL.
Weaknesses: None, but I would like to see a .NET version.
Details: I have implemented this software on several different web sites using MS Access and MS SQL. The installs have gone very easily. On one site, I made quite a few modifications with no problems. The code base is done very nicely. I rate this software above any other forum software out there!

Best Forums in ASP, worldwide...

||Strengths: Free, reliable and incredibly to-the-point
Weaknesses: None here...
Details: I have been using PD9Soft.com Forums for about two years now, and I couldn't be happier with the service these guys offer...
I integrated it with Flash movies and even with XML files that would load with Flash files, and it worked amazingly. Besides, this is one of the ONLY places you will find a free SQL-based and ASP-based Bulleting Forum around...

GREAT FORUM!!!! AWESOME!!!
Written by Anonymous User (#1651-256) from Pensacola, FL (Thursday, April 29, 2004)
||Strengths: Fast, Easy and has it all!!!
Weaknesses: None... Maybe lack of skins and template mods....
Details: I've used snitz, phpbb and others and this is by far the best. Yes, I program in ASP so it makes it my choice but this forum, even default is very robust and has all the features one could ask for!

||Strengths: Very powerful, great user permissions, lots of bonus features
Weaknesses: Could benefit from a color chooser interface. Good that it's all modularized but takes some learnin
Details: Installed it 3 days ago, pretty easy install. Have done substantial customization and really flexed it to meet my exact needs. Very powerful and costomizable. You can run it free but it's well worth the recommended donation.

A great forum

||Strengths: It can do anything I need, and it's not expensive at all
Weaknesses: The charset in the program is not easy to change.
Details: You have a lot of oppertunity in this forum, and it's very easy to change the skin and language. There is only one thing i think there is a problem in this system, and that's the difficulty in changing the charset to other language. Example Nordic. At the moment the language is changed to some chinese character. I guess that's the only problem i got, and that's why I give the best rating...
