ESLScore 2.x - Windows Vista and above

This version of ESLScore is recommended for all systems running Windows Vista or later. The software has been tested on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x., and Windows 10

Step 1 - determine if your system is running the 32 or 64 bit version of Windows. To find out if your computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows in Windows 7, click the Start button, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. Under System, you can view the system type.

Step 2 - Install CLR types for Microsoft SQL Server

32 bit systems - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=239643&clcid=0x409

64 bit systems - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=239644&clcid=0x409

Step 3 - Install SQL Server Report Builder 3.0 from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29072

Step 4 - Windows Vista and Windows 7 only - Install Windows Dot Net 4.5 Runtime (included in Windows 8 and 10) from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653

Step 5 - Install Microsoft Report Viewer 2012 runtime package from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35747

Step 6 - Install ESLScore from ESLScore-v2.08.msi

Can pilot lists and contest scores created and scored in version 1.x be shared back and forth with those in 2.x? We have an XP laptop as the main computer but would like to have a backup computer that happens to be running Windows 7.

Skye,

Any .ESLScore file from an older version can always be opened by a newer version. So, the latest version can always open a file created by an earlier version.

The reverse is not true. Using an 'out of date' version to open a contest file that was created with a later version is not supported. Unfortunately, the software does not check for this condition and the results are unpredictable.

A backup computer for a contest is a good idea, as is keeping a binder with printed copies of the results of each round (just in case).

David,

I downloaded & installed ESL 2.x on our clubs scoring computer and although it runs I'm experiencing a weird graphics issue. Screenshot attached. The labels in the GUI windows overlap the drop downs adjacent to the labels. Any thoughts on what might be causing this issue? I've changed the screen resolution with no luck. Windows 7, 32 bit.

David,

Unfortunately, ESLScore doesn't do a good job with non default font sizes which looks like what may be your issue. Check out http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/windows/3327418/how-make-text-appear-bigger-or-smaller-in-windows-7/ and set it to 100 percent in step 3.

David,

No worries, that fix did the trick. I appreciate your help and look forward to the ALES contest next weekend.

Cheers
