Alternate Download for Backyard
Bookie - Thoroughbred Edition
Some Internet Service Providers, such as AOL,
cut-off product downloads after they reach a certain size, such as 1 megabyte.
The link that comes with your product purchase and is on our trial download and
upgrade pages is approximately 3 meg.
If you have problems downloading large files,
you can download this series of smaller files and install Backyard Bookie using
them instead of the file received through the other links. This will give
you the exact same product, it is just split up into pieces to allow for
downloading. This method also avoids the use of WinZip packaging software,
which some systems have problems processing.
Each of the files below is 720K or less.
files should be downloaded into the same folder on your PC -- we recommend that
you create a special folder specifically for these files, such as
"C:\BackyardInstall\". Once you have your folder created, click on each of
the files below and download them to your computer.
If you click on a file and it does not offer you an option to save it to
your disk, you must right-click on it, then choose the option "Save As" or
"Save Target As".
Be sure that the your saved
files are named exactly as they are in the list below! If not, be
sure to rename them to match these names!
File 1 - Setup.exe file (.1
File 2 - SETUP.LST file (7 K)
File 3 - Backya1.CAB
File 4 - Backya2.CAB
File 5 - Backya3.CAB (.7
File 6 - Backya4.CAB (.7
File 7 - Backya5.CAB (.4
