The software is a combination of spreadsheet and databases that uses limited object orientation programming. I found the ebooks feature quite helpful. Customer Support is great and once you get used to the software, it really solves all your analysis and calculations in literally seconds!
What do you dislike?
One of the major disadvantage of using this software is that this only works on Windows and not on iOS or Linux. Being a Mac user, I have to switch laptops every time I have to use Eviews for my work. Its extremely difficult at start, setting up and using it may be a hassle and it took me a lot of time in perfecting the use of this application as well. Even face problems when exporting to pdf. Frequent updating is required.
