 Installation and Start 
Windows XP / Vista / 7 with dotNET 3.5 or higher.

Unzip the file into any folder you want. Double-click the EXE - after you did a virus scan, naturally!
A good location for "any folder" is e.g. C:\Games\

The programs try to create a file PROGRAMNAME.dat in their installation folder where the results are logged.
This only works, if the installation folder is accessible (Windows Vista/7/8/8.1 can make problems - the change the folder to another drive.)

The programs need a dotNET Framework 3.5 or higher... which should already be installed on your Windows machine.

If not, free Download from Microsoft:
dotNET 4 Framework
dotNET 3.5 Framework
