|SETUP & LAUNCH|
The software runs in Windows and requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 (or newer version) to be installed, which is usually the case with newer versions of Windows. If you have issues with launching the program try installing Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1.
The software is ready to use and does not need to be installed. Some (most) antivirus software do not like .exe-files and you might have to make adjustments to the settings of your antivirus software for The Handicapper to work. Read more
The first time you launch the software you should:
(A) download a demo data package (instructions follow when you run the sotware)
(B) if you have bought access to data subscriptions from the Web Store you install the data package by clicking on the refresh icon (1), fill-in your credentials when the software asks for them and after that click on the download icon (2) that appears. Once the data package is downloaded the software is launched by pressing the 'Proceed' -button (3).
A data update with game and player stats from the most recent match-day is usually ready 12-24 hours after the last match has finished.
If you have bought access to data subscriptions from the Web Store you install the data package by following the same procedure as described above (B).
All program files, which are included in the data package that can be downloaded/updated on a daily basis, are located in the 'The Handicapper'\data -folder. 'The Handicapper' is the folder the .exe-file (th6.exe) is located in. The data consists of text-files, which holds all the information that The Handicapper needs to run.
User Data Files
User data files are files that are custom to the user, or can be customized, and are created at run-time. These files are located in \user -folder.
From time to time there will be software updates. These are installed by replacing the th6.exe -file with the new one (which is also named th6.exe). Nothing else needs to be done for the update to take place.
