You need to create 2 folders on your C: drive....

Call one Handifast.....extract HandifastV11.zip into that folder...right click handifast.exe file and send to desktop

In other folder...must name it handifiles...extract the "2files.zip into it


Done!!

click Handifast Icon on your desktop...ENJOY

after you play around with it...
there is a program call Handisearch that will put data & results into a CSV file.

It is great for researching factors...

I have done much work with it and hope I can come to an end and conclusions on weighting factor(s).

Mike

I really like the handi search but on certain races when I hit batch processor it gets to that race and crashes, any ideas. If I delete that race then it works.

yes...that happens....dont know whats corrupt to cause that..


Just a tip...

if your doing lots of races and that happens....

delete all races before & that bad date...

then hit "LAUNCH PROCESSOR"...DO NOT HIT "INITIALIZE CSV FILE"

or you lose you prior processing files...

It will continue where it left off

I believe the crash occurs when you have an .xrd file without a matching data file. You can have more data files than XRD files, but not the other way around.
