It seems for the time being in order for Lotsoft Pro 5 to run the Live Updates for Pick 3 and Pick 4 we will need to keep the text files at Brinkster.  So this means that if this server goes down Brinkster will need to transfer the files to another server which means updating the "props.mdb" file located in our data folders where Lotsoft Pro is installed.

I tried setting up a backup ftp account with another hosting company but without any success in running the Live Updates.  Lotsoft Pro 5 I believe is hardcoded so that it only will update using a Brinkster server FTP host.  Since I don't have the original code for Lotsoft Pro 5, which most likely resides on Ricky's computer, which will most likely be for eternity, we are basically at the mercy of Brinkster.

    Update:

    August 22, 2014

    7:52 am

    The web files are now transferred to the new server.

    I ran the Live Update and now works again.

    Do not run the Live Update on your version of Lotsoft until I post instructions on how to do this.

    I most likely will create a video with the instructions.

              I thought all I had to do was to copy the new props file into the data folder.  OK, I will try to do all that when I get home this evening.  Thanks Steve.

                You can do either/or, that is copy and paste the props.mdb file or watch the Youtube video and enter the FTP new location.

                I don't think it can be any easier than this.

                        Yeah, I thought it would be just a matter of putting the "new" props file in the data directory.  That has worked before.  It worked this time, but didn't update past the 19th.  I will try an overwrite and see what happens.

                            That's because the draws were not updated early this morning.

                              I was just going by what you posted and the time:

                              Update:

                              August 22, 2014

                              7:52 am

                              That's 4:52 A.M. my time and I tried the update much later than that!

                              No problem.  It worked this afternoon, that's what is important.
