(22/09/04) It seems a little while since these web pages were updated but I thought it was worthwhile marking the passage of time and it is now ten years since EddSON launched Willow Cricket Scorebook. Although there are no further product updates since 2003 we now distribute through Sporting Software in the UK and through ANTS (Greg Sanders) in Australia. Both organisations offer a comprehensive service to our worldwide customers.


(23/03/03) Some of our customers have recently reported problems loading the trial version of Willow. We have identified an issue relating to the version of some common dynamic load libraries that caused Willow to fail with an 'unexpected error' when run. To correct this problem we provide the following ZIP file which identifies and corrects problems with missing and mismatched load libraries. Download the ZIP file, uncompress it and then run the Setup progam.

Another issue that affects customers running Windows XP. If you are running the Windows XP theme then some Willow windows do not size correctly. To correct this problem:
Right click on the desktop and choose properties. Now select Themes and change the Windows XP theme to Windows Classic.

(14/01/03) It has been a long time coming and this latest update is far from what i had hoped but this further interim release of Willow does address a number of issues and is well worth a download. v1.03 Rel 003c is available for download now.
