New in version 7.87
New clubs recently sanctioned were not allowed in older versions of ACBLscore. If your new club number begins with 27 install version 7.87.
- Computer: IBM®-compatible with any version of Windows® or MS-DOS version 3.3 or newer.
- Printer: Any is acceptable. A wide-carriage printer (132 columns) dot matrix will produce recaps that may be easier to read, but a narrow dot matrix, laser or inkjet will be adequate. (Note: Many newer printers require Windows to operate. These printers will work with ACBLscore only in Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 or XP.)
- Keyboard: Should have a numeric keypad separate from the letter keys for easier numeric entry. A separate set of arrow keys is also helpful.
ACBLscore is available for download, using the links at the top right. An operations manual is installed as part of the program disk. To order ACBLscore on CD or 3.5-inch high-density diskettes e-mail ListLabel@acbl.org or phone 662-253-3154. There is a $10 handling charge for this service.
To report bugs, or if you have installation or technical questions: e-mail ACBLscore@acbl.org or phone 662-253-3165.
