    Live Chat Windows Client

    Hi, I'm stuck between choices. I am not sure which is better based on price against features and stability etc. I wanted to use a windows client with a live support software and cannot afford Live Person so I have a choice of the following:

    Help Center Live (Free) + WinApp ($30)
    or
    Star Develop + WinClient ($54.95)
    or
    PHP Live ($169) + WinApp ($69)
    or
    Bold Chat ($39/month)


    Any ideas?

    I use to use Help Center Live however i did not see the benefit in paying $30 per installation on each computer for Winapp, so i decided to take the plunge with Stardevelop.

    I have to say i think i made a good choice.

    the winapp isnt $30 per installation on each computer, its $30 per installation of Help Center Live on your server?! You can use it on as many computers as you want.

    I dont want the boldchat free service, they only have very limited features on their free version.

    Ok, if you are going to pay for BoldChat, then you might want to go with PHP Live. BoldChat is good being free, but if you are going to pay, go with something different and better.
