Is it not an option for your to login as administrator to install it? If admin policies prevent you it sounds like this is deliberate to prevent you installing software and we can not get round this.

But then this Windows Explorer pops up ans says "This program is not commonly downloaded and could harm your computer." The only options is presents are to "Don't run this program" or "Delete". Very helpful.

Do you have the option to run the installation file as an administrator?

I will investigate.

Betfair have resolved the issue so this should now be working.

Sorry Gary, I'm a bit unclear as to whether I need to uninstall and reinstall. I am using 1.1.0.66x84. I understand there are some API issues that just started (I managed to load markets into 5 of 7 instances, but the last two I opened are continually fetching markets). Will reinstalling to the new version fix this?

Thanks

Graham

I seemed to have made some progress, now I am able to run the installation, but it won't continue unless i uninstall previous versions.

Is that the way to go? Will I lose any profiles?

That's right. You should not lose profiles.

You shouldn't need to re-install now. Does restarting those instances help?

No, tried that, now on retry 90. Other instances operating fine, I'm reluctant to close those to reinstall just in case!

It might be the Australian API playing up. Just timed out on me, but worked eventually. If you don't need Australian markets and "Include Australian markets" is ticked in quick pick preferences then try unticking it.

Just double checked that aus markets is unticked, as all my profiles are so not that. I tried refreshing markets on a machine already running, no luck, up to 100 retries.

I tried starting another machine running same version, again, no luck. Tried reinstalling, but lost profiles and went back to old purple and blue logo, so downloaded from the msi3 link you posted. Markets loaded fine (incidentally no version number appearing though)

download problem

Postby glomo » Sun Jun 02, 2013 10:35 am

I can't seem to download http://www.gruss-software.co.uk/Betting ... _Beta3.msi on whatever browser I have on my computer - I don't think it is a cache problem or something like that.

Sports betting software from Gruss Software


The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
