I hope one of you who still have Lotto Creo Pro will take the time to send me the KEY so I can use the trial version  I have.  I have to manually input ( no on line update ) 100 past drawings and need the time to do it.

Best wishes and luck from,

    Is this program still for sale? 

    I would also be interested in a key unless a purchase link is still available.  I know I purchased this program years ago but changing computers etc. lost the key

    billdog,  I noticed your from Florida so I'm using the Florida 5/36 game as an example.

    Here is a download link to a file for the Florida Fantasy 5/36 file you would place in the sub folder called loto where you have all the draw histories.

    https://www.box.com/s/1ifs1ktyfqx2h83vbkwm

    Just replace the existing file with the one above.

     

    This is how I updated the drawing file:

    The file extension is .lcf which is probably short for "Lotto Creo File", this is the file I updated for the Florida 5/36 game "Florida Fantasy 5.36.lcf"

    There is a 2nd file called "Florida Fantasy 5.36.baz" just ignore this file.  This identifies the game structure such as 5 numbers drawn, total numbers in the lottery, lottery game name, and if the game has a bonus ball.

    I downloaded and installed the demo Lotto Creo versio 5 on my computer Windows 7 32bit without any issues. 

    I tried creating a database for the entire history of the Florida 5/36 game which is over 4000 draws.  It seems Lotto Creo will only accept up tp 999 draws.  So the link provided above has the current draw history of 999 draws with the last draw being Friday May 10, 2013.

    Here is another issue that I ran into.  I tried creating a draw history or 998 draws deleting the 5/10/13 draw then opened Lotto Creo and tried adding the 5/10/13 drawing but could not add the draw.  A way around this if you can not update any additional draws using the manual update in Lotto Creo is to close Lotto Creo, open Notepad, go to the Lotto Creo folder, then open the sub folder loto (C:\:LottoCreo\Loto) then open the file Florida Fantasy 5.36.lcf.  You can enter the new drawings by entering the day month year draws like this for example for May 10, 2013:

    100513 10 15 20 33 34 

    All new drawings are entered at the bottom.  There is a space between the drawing numbers and after the date.  See example above.

    You may want to save this file to your Desktop then copy and paste the file into the C:\LottoCreo\loto folder

    Then open Lotto Creo, open the Florida 5/36 file. You should see the most curren drawing.  As I mentioned above it would seem the limit is only 999 maximum draws in the draw history.

    When using Notepad to update the next drawing, for example May 11, 2013 use the format listed above:

    110513 01 02 03 04 05 

    Make sure you pad any number less than 10 with as zero as in the example above.

    When you save the file to the C:\LottoCreo\loto\ folder make sure you DO NOT save it as a .txt (text) file.  Go to File > Save As > at the bottom where you see "Save as type:" make sure you select "All Files (*)"

    The "File name: should be "Florida Fantasy 5.36.lcf".  Again DO NOT save this as a .txt file (Text)

    Using this as an example, anyone wanting to use a different game just follow the example above.  Of course your file name will need to match the game name in the loto folder of Lotto Creo.

      It would appear Lotto Creo is still for sale at http://www.lottocreo.net/index.htm so you can not ask for a key or unlock code here (puts this site in jeopardy), if their security is any good it wouldn't work anyway. 

      That said, I think the program was sold to a third party around 2006 and would be interested to know if anything including data bases have been updated since then.  Sales are being handled through regnow with no contact information to request support on the auto pilot site above.

        I noticed a free 15 day trail version can be downloaded at that link too, so a key might not be necessary for anyone just wanting to try it out before purchasing.

          I would rather download RJ's free trial.

              Is this a conversational level that might lead to dinner and a movie?

                  They stopped updating the datafiles in 2006 about that same time they stopped selling Lotto Creo Pro.  If you look at the very bottom of the web site you will see it hasn't been updated since 2006, just another dead lottery site

                    What exactly did the program do?

                      What exactly did the program do?


                      Program allowed for the online update of multiple lottery data bases along with allowing users to maintain and add new draws to them.

                      Has a main screen with hotmax, hotmin, cold and last draw to hand select numbers from to go into combinations on wheels.

                      Has a analysis of past draws and prediction routine that selects say 20 Pick-5 numbers out of 36.  A click on [Next] ports these numbers to the main screen auto loading the groups. 

                      The selections from the main screen can be loaded on to wheels with six filters available and 100%, 90% or 80% coverage choices available by stripping away lines from the wheel which pretty much ruined the guarantee anyway.

                      It appears the program can still be purchased, however the databases are not being updated when called for from my copy, can't say whether a new copy targets a different resource or is a zombie.

                        Everyone,

                        BobP is right .I should not have asked for a key while it is being sold. My excuse is that there has been zero support ( no reply to my e-mail questions), plus no on line updating mader it very had to do a fair trial in the few days allotted.  Winsumeloesum   has solved the update problem ( see his post aboive).  Thanks for the fine detailed solution winsumlossum . I will update the way he suggested and do my trial with some good  draw history.. If it works out with some good results, I will buy it.

                        Good luck to us all,

                        billdog.

                          That's how a lot of that commercial lottery software works.  Someone writes it thinking they can make a living supporting it and when it doesn't work out they have to move on leaving their customers to fend for themselves.  There's plenty of old lottery software still being sold but is no longer supported and new users trying to use it without buying it.

                            So what would you guys pay for such software? Is there a pricing model that would work so the users wouldn't mind paying and yet it would be enough for the developer to keep working on it? I enjoy certain pricing models from a few companies. NextFlix charges around $8 for their streaming service. That's low enough I can enjoy the service and not complain about the cost. Apple charges yearly fee of $40 for the iCloud service. Microsoft $60 a year for the Live service. All low enough so they can make money and yet I'll happily fork over the money because the service is worth it. Hell, NetFlix could charge a little more in my opinion and I'd still pay it. I'd probably draw the line at $20 /month.

                            I could write some software that made it easy to update numbers. I already have a working model for Pick 3 that my site uses. That could be expanded for other games. It would take some time to do the work for multiple games for every state. Still, it could be done. You guys could give me features you'd like the program could have, sky is the limit. I'm not greedy, I don't think it would make enough money where I could quit my day job. Still, if I'm spending my free time on it, some compensation would be nice. Maybe a little vacation money or something.

                              Anyone willing to copy and paste or simply enter the data daily can update their data, the problem is the software doesn't do anything with the data that players value after a while. 

                              Sure at first knowing which numbers hit the most or most recently and etc. might seem like data that could be used to pick winners but after a while it becomes obvious that it's not and interest in the software wends and the users aren't willing to pay any amount to support it.  Besides, such data is offered free by websites like LP to attractive potential viewers.

                              The market of lottery software buyers isn't as large as the market for movie viewers.
