Many of the newer features of Horse Show for Windows require administrator access. The HSW icon that the main installation creates will automatically be set up with administrator privileges. If you need to adjust any other HSW icons (including the one you may have pinned to the task bar), right click on the icon and choose Properties from the bottom of the pop-up menu (task bar icon needs two right clicks – one on the task bar icon and another on the icon on the pop up). Click Advanced and then check the Run as administrator box and click Ok. Click Ok again to save and close the Properties window.
When running HSW through these updated icons, you will be asked if you want to allow this app to make changes to your computer. Say Yes!
With the need for administrator privileges in doing many of the new features of HSW, Windows wants to ensure that your computer is being protected and will request that you confirm you know that hshow.exe is a valid application.
“User Account Control (UAC) helps prevent malware from damaging a PC and helps organizations deploy a better-managed desktop. … UAC can block the automatic installation of unauthorized apps and prevent inadvertent changes to system settings. UAC allows all users to log on to their computers using a standard user account.”
To hold Grand/Reserve classes, enter each class as a separate one into your showbill.
Each Grand/Reserve class has it’s own approving association code and is noted as such by checking the ‘Is Grand/Reserve’ box in the Classes area.
Each class that feeds into those Grand/Reserve classes needs to have the proper class codes in the ‘Grand class’ and ‘Reserve class’.
After all results are entered for the classes that feed into the Grand & Reserve classes, the program automatically enters the horses that qualify (1st place winners in the Grand class and 1st and 2nd place winners to the Reserve class). Then results can be entered (first place for the Grand in the Grand class and first place for the Reserve in the Reserve class).
If your association has only one class which places 1st and 2nd as Grand/Reserve, put the same class code into both the Grand class and Reserve class fields of the feeder classes.
Both horses and people can be looked up by association number by first typing the @ sign and then the association number in any horse or person lookup field. No need for the approving association, if there is more than one person or horse with the same number, you will be provided with a box to choose the correct horse/person.
