I recommend Best Form data and my programs have been tested on WinXP (not media edition) , Vista , Win 7, 8 (32bit and 64bit).
The programs may run fine with other form providers, however I reserve the right to decline support for additional form providers (some may be added later).


Before Installation:

To overcome installation problems, it is advisable that you perform the dot net framework check PRIOR installation of my program.

1. Dot Net Framework check:

(DO NOT overwrite, or repair or uninstall any .NET versions UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES).

Before downloading and installing the .NET Framework (Link bellow), check your current version of .NET framework.

Win 8 users can skip this step as .Net 4 is pre installed on all Win 8 versions.

To do this look in C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework (or equivalent on your computer) and you will see directories that indicate the current version of the framework you have. If you have a directory that starts with 'v4' or higher then you don't need to download .NET framework. If you are unsure how to do this please contact me first.

If, when you run .NET you are prompted to repair or uninstall please cancel, as you already have the file installed.

Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.0 Standalone Instal (x86_x64) (32+64bit Win XP,Vista, Win7)
