To install from the internet, download the installation program and run it. Follow the prompts and when complete use the procedures for the first time you run the ASE Scorer Version 9.

 

There are two types of installation, stand alone and networked. The stand alone version has the database management software included in the application. The network version has the database management software installed separately.

 

Standalone installation

Generally the stand alone version of ASE Scorer Version 9 should be used for installation. Download the stand alone version of ASE Scorer Version 9 and run this install. The program name for installation will be something like ASE9_N2_102e.exe where the 102  shows the release number. The 'e' indicates the database software is embedded in the install kit.

 

Separate networking installation

The networked version should be attempted only by very experienced users. The database software should be installed first, followed by the installation of networked version of ASE Scorer Version 9. The database and ASE Scorer Version 9 install files are separate programs, and should be run independently of each other.

 

Install the Firebird software first, and this should be a program named like: Firebird-2.1.4.18393_0_Win32.exe. See the Firebird installation below.

 

Then install the network version of ASE Scorer Version 9 where the program name for installation will be something like ASE9_N2_102.exe where the 102 shows the release number.

 

NOTE: the embedded version of ASE 9 will also work with the server on another machine so long as the release of the Firebird program is 2.5.1, the same as the embedded  version.

 

The networked version allows several computers to share the same members' database on all computers, where the members' records are maintained on one file, eliminating the need to enter player details more than once. See 'using a network database' for more details.
