    Thank you again, Bill. I will make sure everyone involved gets these details, and thank you for examining the file. We novice users of Vega have some more familiarisation to do.

    The five letter requirement for FIDE's simple search is an explanation for why it didn't find the player I used the advanced search for. I had wondered; it would be nice if FIDE documented that limitation right there on the input form, and whether only last names are searched or all names. I suppose I can test that too, but what the site does now doesn't have to be what it does after someone updates the software behind it. Small issue.

    I will send you the name of the player privately if you don't mind; it's not particularly secret but is a junior, so I'd prefer to err on the side of discretion. The last name does not meet the five character requirement as you no doubt suspect. Which still leaves the update of the rating as a problem, and I will investigate if you don't beat me to that too!

    Regards,

    Giles

    Still waiting on testing. :-( My Windows notebook lunched itself, and I'm working to get everything activated again after a reinstall. Been chatting on and off (mostly off) with MS Support for over an hour now.

    (At least the support guy is friendly and trying to help. Licensing issues are always awful, for both the customer and the vendor. I've been on both sides. "Been there, done that, didn't like it the first time.")

    All Vega users should move to version 8.0.5 for any new tournaments.
    There is an updated manual available dated 20th February 2018.

    What am i doing wrong? I had no issues with Vega 7. Thanks.
    I have managed to download it successfully, after disabling antivirus and updating Java and various other adventures. Have run a test tournament. I get the "error saving configuration file" message on exiting but it didn't prevent me reloading and continuing the test.

    Might be a need to remind DOPs to place the serial txt registration document in the new programme directory (which i initially forgot to do, of course). I am still getting an error message when i exit the programme - error saving configuration file. Can anyone help with this? Thanks.
