May I suggest that you go to the web page and download the demo copy? It is
a fully functional version, it just limits the number of Scouts, Scooters,
and activities you can input. It will be well worth your time. Import your
troopmaster data and try it out. I think you will be favorably impressed.
The way WinScout handles Eagle edits is a little different than TroopMaster.
Keep in mind that this program is not yet a year old. Every problem I have
brought to their attention (by e-mail or 888 number) has been fixed within
48 hours and an upgrade put on the web page. The "demo copy" you will
download is the actual version. Once you purchase it, you will get a
license number to enter instead of the word "demo". Then your Scouts,
Scouters, and Activities are unlimited. Give it a try, you don't have
anything to lose, and a bunch to gain. The benefits are to many to cover
all at once.
