you have is too old.
You have to download the latest 22.214.171.124 version to correct this problem.
|The software doesn't respond intermittently||
If the software doesn't respond,
it's certainly that your computer doesn't support the Internet
Loto Excel Universal (it's the offline or online indicator).
You just have to edit (with notepad for example) your file "LotoeXcl.ini" and then to make these changes :
(replace NetDetect variable 1 by 0, that will deactivate the Internet autodetection )
The only difference is that the software will ask you if you are connected to the Internet before making an update.
(instead of detecting it by itself)
|For European users, how to display the prizes in old currency ?||
You just have to fly over amounts displayed in Euros to obtain a visible
conversion into old currency in the tasks bar and in a
If you wish to change the convertion rate (for conversions in other European currencies for example), you have to update the "LotoeXcl.ini" file with the desired convertion rate and all the amounts will be calculated according to this new rate.
|How to consult prizes for my saved combinations ?||
Concerning the "Lists Manipulation", it's a feature which
allows you to move the calculated list in the "Combinations according to the limits" mode.
And then have the possibility of saving it once copied in one of the buffer lists.
With this method you do not lose the calculations that you estimate to be the most interesting. (besides, you will be able to print the lists by exporting them to
softwares like Excel)
So here is a good example to consult the prizes of your saved combinations (with buffer lists)
-At first, you open naturally your list with one of the 3 buffer lists.
-You copy your buffer list in the main list (that should be empty).
-You return to the "more or less drawn combinations" mode and in this mode you choose the draws interval that you want to consult the prizes. ( For example the last 10 draws).
-The software is going to ask you if you wish to adapt the list in memory for the new current interval, answer YES at this question.
-Once the list is adapted, go to the " Combinations according to the limits " mode, then click on the "Rows" button if it's visible in order to allow a detailed sort in depth.
(Do not forget to save your buffer lists with all the prize rows stored to have then this detailed sort).
So you can consult the recent prizes of your saved combinations and know immediatly the one that would have the most won money or the less won.
How to save combinations
Very simple, once you have calculated a list in the "Combinations according to
the limits" mode, go to the "Lists manipulation" mode.
To make all the manipulations, you just have to use the right click
of your mouse on the lists to make appear a popup menu.
So, if for example you wish to save the main list, you have to click on the right click of the mouse above it, and then click on "Select all".
This in order to copy all the combinations of the current list.
Then click again with the right click on the list to see the number
of the selected combinations.
Then click on (for example) "Copy to List I" and all the selected combinations are going to be copied in the buffer list I.
Once this buffer list is filled up, you can at any time save it by clicking simply on "Save List I".
It is here that will be created the files *.lst which you will be able to then export to Excel.

So, you already know that you can use the
"Lists Manipulation" mode to copy or to move all or a part of the main list towards the buffer lists...
|Error messages related to "VCL40.BPL" file||
You certainly have an old
version of "VCL40.BPL" file.
Open the System directory of Windows : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
Your version of the VCL40.BPL file is in this directory.
Search the VCL40.BPL file and do a backup copy, that you will place in a sure place
(you simply make a copy/paste of the file once you have located it in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM, and you place
a copy of the file in a temporary directory of your choice ).
Once the file copied in a sure place , you can remove this one from the repertory C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.
Once the old VCL40.BPL file has been moved, you just have to relaunch the Loto Excel Universal installation that you have download from the Web.
This installation will update you. After that, you can launch the software!
|Error message at startup : "Successful WSAStartup not yet performed"||
It means that the Microsoft protocol
TCP/IP is not
or is badly installed on your system...

a connection to the Internet network.
It is necessary to have the installation cd of Windows and
you have to choose network parameters in the control panel.
Then, add the Microsoft protocol TCP/IP and click "OK",
once the installation is ended, you have to restart the computer.
You can now relaunch Loto Excel Universal !

You have to modify Regional Settings from your Control Panel to take into account the long and short dates.
The regional settings control the default appearance such items as language
accents, decimal places used in numbers, the default currency symbol, and so on. Access the regional settings in Control Panel.
You do not have anything to modify in the others tab than the
"Date" tab. (Of course, you have to modify them only if they are
Click the "Date" tab ...
|Error message at startup : "Date exceeds maximum of 02/24/2002"||
The warning panel "date exceeds maximum of 02/24/2002" appears in the application startup.
The software launches well but my mouse doesn't work and the permanent display of the startup image can't disappear.
It's an intern protection of
the software due to your bad settings of the Windows calendar.
example : here to
solve the problem that occured February 24 2003, we see that the year isn't the
good one (2002 instead of 2003). You just have to choose the correct date, in
this case 02/24/2003 (instead of 02/24/2002). To do this, you have to
double click on Hour display permently present below to the right
under Windows. You will access to the "Properties of Date/Hour"
and will be able to enter the correct date.
