To install Palmcricket on the hand-held, do the following in
(More detailed step-by-step instructions are provided under
the frequently asked questions (FAQ) page).
No run time modules are required, and Palmcricket will
create its own score-sheet database (PcriDB.PDB).The
Palmcricket module provides complete scoring functionality,
with the exception of infra-red printing. The following are
supplementary but not essential for correct operation:
- SCSPrint.prc: A print server third-party add-on
available from Stevens Creek Software (click here to link to their
download pages). It allows one to print score sheets
directly from the Palm handheld via infra-red interface to
a printer. We've used the Palm M100 successfully in the
field with the HP Deskjet 350, and a desktop HP Laserjet
5P, but haven't tested any other printers as yet. This
feature allows one to score and print matches at venues
without any electrical power whatsoever, if one has access
to portable battery driven printers such as the 350.
- Palmcricket Manual: The complete Palmcricket
user documentation (this file, along with 109 images in GIF
format, download from
here), which is recommended reading for new users.
- Palmcricket Viewer: The free Windows companion
to Palmcricket which allows one to view and/or print
completed score-sheets in conventional or summarised
format, or export to Excel, on desktop computers running
Windows 95 or higher.
