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.
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

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.
