Dear TroopMaster 2000 User,
When we created version V1.03, we made an "improvement" that
inadvertently caused an error in the program. When copying a parent's
data to the adults file, we changed the program so that it looks for an
existing match based on formal name OR nickname. The change worked fine
but it caused a new problem if the adult was not there at all. In some
cases the error caused an adult to be duplicated, and in other cases the
new adult overwrote an existing adult.
We have fixed the error in a V1.04 patch. To download the patch, just
click on it, tell your browser that you want to save it, and give it a
location to save it. When the download is complete, please run the
patch to implement the changes. The patch will automatically find and
update your existing version.
IMPORTANT: Remember where you save the patch when you download it
because you must locate and run the patch in order for the changes to
take effect. The patch runs very much like a SETUP program but it has a
different name (TM2KP104.EXE). You may want to download the patch to a
blank diskette--this would make it easy to store the patch with your
original program diskette, and it also makes it easy to make copies of
the patch for other leaders who are running the program.
The patch includes all of the changes for the intermediate versions.
For example, if you are using V1.00, running the V1.04 patch will
install all of the changes for Versions 1.01, 1.02, 1.03, and 1.04.

We apologize for the error and promise that in the future, if it ain't
broke, we won't fix it.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
