1.0.0.0 November 2011 Release – Overview

 

Carlsen's Roping Management Program (RMP) is designed to assist in the production of team roping jackpots.  It will perform activities such as signing up teams or draw pot contestants, drawing partners, arranging teams for the roping, printing partner lists and timer sheets as well as keeping tracking of the times and winners of the roping.  The RMP is capable of producing numbered ropings, drawpots, pick & draw and round robin ropings 

 

Known Issues

RMP fails to recognize a valid license

After purchasing a valid license, the RMP still limits the view of teams to 10 and behaves as though it is in demo mode.  If you have data in the database that you don’t want to loose, backup the database using the Tools & Reports Backup Database utility.  Note the directory in which the database backup was placed.  Uninstall the application.  Download the RMPInstaller_V1001.msi file and reinstall.  Rename the backed up database from RMPData.backup to RMPData.mdb in the directory it was created.
