IMPORTANT: Trial Genie requires Microsoft
Access to run. This is a database
program that uses the MS Access (2003 – 2013 versions are OK) to do its
work. If you don’t have MS Access, you
can download the Microsoft Access “RunTime” that will
allow TrialGenie to operate – you just won’t have the
ability to modify forms and reports.
8/19/2015 – Version
5.0 is now available… AKC Premier + Many
new time saving features!
Version 5.0 is now available that
includes support for the new AKC Premier classes. This change touched a ton of screens and code
in Trial Genie, and I’ve been working to flush out the various parts of the system. I expect that there will be some problems,
and will be working to fix those as soon as they crop up.
If you have been entering data
into a trial that will have Premier, you can download this version, apply the
new registration key, and import from your current database. Then you can add those Premier classes you’ve
been setting aside. You will need to
turn on the Premier classes, add the necessary fees to the trial setup, and
then can add the classes for the dogs.

change affected a huge number of modules and features in the code. I’ve tried to run through as many as I use,
and will be using the software this weekend at a local show. However, I am almost positive that I missed
some things. If you find something, let

you for your patience.
A paid upgrade is in the works to allow TrialGenie
to support the new AKC Premier classes. This upgrade also includes many new
features implemented to make entries easier to put in, bug fixes, and other
features users have asked for.
The first release is planned for early August and will be available for
upgrade on this website. A new license key will be required for this release to
enable the use of the premier updates.
As fixes are made, updated versions will be posted here. Simply download,
apply your license key, and import from your current database.
Currently, AKC OLE automatic downloads may be
supported in the future, but not until the entire functionality of the classes
has been verified. Until that time, those entries may need to be processed
manually if premier classes are offered.
