      Yea this sucks .... i noticed that today also .... I read that prior post and the solutions people are saying as far as updating it yourself are well over my head , i dont use excel, ... or create spreadsheets, or use cells , etc ... never have ... i dont even think i have excel on this laptop that i have lotsoftpro on ....

      I hope someone hears something soon about this .... did Ricky or Paurths ever say anything about this happening ?

      winning numbers are found using odds , patterns, history, and a little work  - anything else is just a coincidence, unless your psychic..Wink

        In Lotsoft there are 2 ways to update draws by "Import draws from file" and by "Add draw", the Import can add a lot of past draws to Lotsoft, but the Add draw can only add 1 draw at a time, it is not so good to use, many years ago I asked Paurths to make a much better Add draw thing to Lotsoft, but he didn't want to, he said that it was already good enough, using it would take forever to add draws one draw at a time, it can be made better.

        As it is import draws first and then add one draw at a time, those who can't import would be out of luck as the add draw as it is right now can only add one draw and that is it, it can't be used for adding many draws unless you have years in which to do that, it could be made faster and easier to use, but so far Paurths don't want to do it.

        Another problem with many software programs is that if for some reason you need to reinstall the program you need to  get a new unlock code for it as the old code won't anymore work even on the very same Windows intallation and computer.

        Good thing for me that as I have learned a few things about the lottery, I also have learned just a few things about computers and software, that sure does help some.

          The problem is that you need the draws and then you need to make them like this in order to first import them, Lotsoft doesn't have a way of making the conversion by itself, you need to find a way of making the conversions by yourself, they need to be such as like this:

          05/02/2011;3;7;5
          05/03/2011;9;1;5
          05/04/2011;4;4;2
          05/05/2011;2;8;1
          05/06/2011;4;0;1
          05/07/2011;0;3;6
          05/09/2011;0;6;8
          05/10/2011;5;2;7
          05/11/2011;7;4;3
          05/12/2011;1;7;1
          05/13/2011;7;1;0
          05/14/2011;9;0;0
          05/16/2011;6;6;4
          05/17/2011;1;2;4
          05/18/2011;8;5;0
          05/19/2011;4;2;6

          By hand that might take forever to do.

          You are on your own on this unless somebody else can help you.

          There are people here who can make software and maybe even make an"intelligent draw importer or converter" for Lotsoft and or also other softwares.

          Doing 1 or 2 states is not so bad, but if you need to update many states and often it can be a very big pain you know where.

          That is why sometimes you need to use a prediciton method that uses very few past draws, having to update very many past draws is just too much trouble and mostly with some softwares such as Lotsoft.

            then we can just click on it instead of having to type it in to search.  Like this...

                Okay, I guess you could that too. I hadn't thought of that. Thanks.

                            Lotsoft Pick 3 text files download link:

                            https://app.box.com/s/2cfp2zlihr38tzz1vyeh

                             

                            Lotsoft Pick 4 text files download link:

                            https://app.box.com/s/6yi98v507y8chda04czr

                             

                            Each link will direct you to the main folder.  There are 2 subfolders.  Midday Draws and Evening Draws.  Select the Pick 3 folder for example, open the Midday Draws folder, loctae the text file for your particular game(s) and download.

                            There are 2 PDF's with Instructions on how to update Lotsoft Pick 3 game in the 1st link above (Lotsoft Pick 3).

                            The Lotsoft Pick 3 draw history can be easily deleted.  The Pick 4 I'm still trying to figure out.

                            Drawing text files are updated through Februrary 9 2014 in the correct format.

                            If you try and import any of the text files for your particurlar game you will end up with duplicate draws.  This is where you need to delete all the current draws.  Read the PDF Instructions.

                              Lotsoft Pick 4 text files download link:

                              https://app.box.com/s/6yi98v507y8chda04czr

                               

                              Each link will direct you to the main folder.  There are 2 subfolders.  Midday Draws and Evening Draws.  Select the Pick 3 folder for example, open the Midday Draws folder, loctae the text file for your particular game(s) and download.

                              There are 2 PDF's with Instructions on how to update Lotsoft Pick 3 game in the 1st link above (Lotsoft Pick 3).

                              The Lotsoft Pick 3 draw history can be easily deleted.  The Pick 4 I'm still trying to figure out.

                              Drawing text files are updated through Februrary 9 2014 in the correct format.

                              If you try and import any of the text files for your particurlar game you will end up with duplicate draws.  This is where you need to delete all the current draws.  Read the PDF Instructions.

                              Very nice Steve, thanks.
