Hello,

I have been using the Scorecard 2 program since 2009 to keep track of my rounds. I have 166 rounds and the program is working great.

Here is the problem ... I have a new laptop and can't get it to install on Windows 8.1. I have sent many tech support requests but have never received an answer. Their website is still running but their support is not existent ...

Has anyone got the Scorecard program to install and run on Windows 8 ??

Thanks,

Kent

The software has not been updated in several years and has been unsupported for at least that long.

We're talking about 3+ years. Maybe closer to 5. Maybe longer than five, even…

Well that is a bummer.

So there is NO hope of it running on Windows 8 ?

Is there another handicap program that you recommend and hopefully I can transfer my 160+ rounds of data ?

Thanks,

Kent

They should still export for you. Or if not, you should be able to send the database to me and I can export them if you've already installed Windows 8 and can't get it to run.

The data format is pretty open.

I have a similar problem with Windows 7 after some windows update it stopped working and get this message "The application was unable to load a required virtual machine component"

Anyone else with similar issue and maybe a solution?

I found the solution. Some windows updates are conflicting. I removed the 3 below and got the app to work.

KB3068708

KB3045999

KB3022345

I was getting the same error message about the virtual machine component. How do i go about removing those three updates that you are showing there?

Quite a few different programs got problems with these updates and got the same error so tired and these three are the ones that made the difference.

Well, it's doing that same thing again.  I uninstalled all the updates that were giving it problems.  It stopped working altogether.  I'm done screwing with it.  There is no support for it from Cynical either.

You do know the company shut down about five or six years ago, right?

Why Brad keeps the site up, I have no idea.

P.S. Scorecard works on OS X 10.11. :)

I'm thinking golfers are still buying the program.  I bought it about a year ago, or I know less than 2 years ago.  It's the best program out there for golf stats.  I have probably 50 rounds in there, so I hate to give up on it now.  I have about 20 rounds to enter as well.

And like a dope, i didn't write down my license number so that's probably lost.

Yeah, that's pretty ridiculous. I left the company a long time ago. Why Brad hasn't taken down the site I don't know.

You would need to google around a bit to see what new updates might cause the same issues, and also turn off the automatic updates for Windows.

I think as you that  this is one of the better software's but the best part is that the database is on your computer. Think if iacas old software where an online application. all data would be lost!

Doesn't really solve your problem with that program, but... I just keep everything in excel and have created formulas to calculate everything once I enter the data. Maybe something like that could work for you going forward

If I can't get this update thing figured out I may have to go to that. The unique feature of the Scorcard 2 is that first putt length. All other programs just count puts. And it's easy to enter the round. Takes just a few seconds. I'll search for the problem updates and if that doesn't work just start deleting the latest ones.
