New Version 1.0.1 - Created checking for duplicate entries within each race

Added code to process errors returned from the sql database when a duplicate entry is found. Duplicates include same first and last name, same car number or same car name. The previous entry is preserved when this occurs.

RaceTrack 1.0.0 Released

I just released a new version of Race Track Pinewood derby program for MIcroWizard and Judge control gates. I fixed the contestant window to allow edits within the table and save those edits to the database. I restricted the Open, New and Close menu options to one at a time because when mutiple races were up the database would get corrupted. I fixed the creation and the recognition of the database where it will create automatically and recognize any properly formated script for the database created in the database directory. I added a safety window for closing a race which permanently wipes out the race, I added more COM Port Support for multiple COM Ports on the setup screen. I hope this makes this program more useable. In the future I plan on adding documentation and an installer to help install the serial IO files. Enjoy, and I would appreciate any comments.... read more
