Pigeon Program for Windows7

Revised May 13, 2011

Windows 7 Differences


Windows 7 does not fully support the printing functions of this program. You can still make hard copy printouts of the charts but with less printer control.

Running This Program In Compatibility Mode

Run this program in compatibility mode. This will make it easier to find your data files, otherwise Windows7 will place them in a hidden folder that is hard to find. To do that just right-click on the link to the program and choose Properties, from there choose the compatibility tab and check the box to run in compatibility mode.

Download Manual

A full-featured PDF Manual for this program has not been made yet, but a simple text file for how to use the program is available and can be used to get you started. Once you do a few simple first steps the first time you run the program, the rest is pretty much self-explanetory so it may be all you will need. You can get it HERE

Download Conversion Program

Previous versions created over 30 data files - one for each year. This latest version uses a total of 6 data files for use in the program. If you have been using an older version of the program (that created 30 data files) and have entries that you don't want to lose, you will need to run the conversion program. The conversion program won't make any changes to your original data files. You simply put the conversion file in the same folder where your old files are located and run it. It will create a separate sub-folder with 6 new data files in it. You then copy and past these new data files into the folder where your new program keeps the data files and your old entries are now available to the new program.You can get the conversion progran HERE
