 Sorry but at the moment I only have Windows 7 computers to test on so I can't tract down that error specificaly. But I recommend updating windows and trying to install again.

Edit: I have not had any trouble installing on several systems. also please post comments.

Very cool little program. Congratulations!

I'd actually prefer it if the commands were swapped, and a double click added or removed a unit, and you had to click an interface button to acess the stat card. People will be adding and removing squads much more than they will be reviewing stat cards. You can still leave the arrow buttons for those that need things spelled out,  but the double click should have the same effect.

 

Some name corrections:

"13 Foxtrot"

"The Hammers"

The "Panzer Killers" have actually been renamed "Tank Killers", though I prefer the original name. "Panzer" doesn't refer exclusively to german tanks, otherwise a "panzerschreck" would be called a "tankschreck".

I have Windows 7 and it's up to date.  Oh well, if I get a chance I'll try it on a different computer.

Thanx for corrections and Sounds cool I'll give your idea a shot.

also I found a small bug, if you open a saved army list with units already in your  army list it will cause problems fix will be out in next version.
work around is to make sure your list is empty before you open a saved list.

Good Program, however a lot of the Display Cards aren't loading and some of the ones loading is incorrect. Bazooka Joe's card shows him costing 2 points (though he costs 16). Johnny One-eye's card is Ozz's card. I really think that if all the cards were loaded properly, it would be a fantastic program!

 

**** for the program

Minus ** because of the card issues!

I get a 404 when I click on the link.

Your program is great, btw!  Thank you for putting it up.

 Yeah, link's not working, but you can get to the software easily enough through the blog link.

 

Again, great job. I'm glad to see you incorporated my suggestion to the adding/removing process, it really is faster and more intuitive to play around with the list now.

 

Now, what would it take to turn this into a smart phone app?

Completely minor, but SturmKonig is misspelled.

Heya awesome program and thanks for the effort put into it. I checked out the SSU army and all the cards lined up. I wasn't sure what the rules button did so I highlighted a unit and the error box came up stating: Provide value on "System.Windows.Baml2006.TypeConverterMarkupExtension" threw an exception.

Only suggestion I have to improve on it would be to make a print button for the army list….and if it could be a smartphone app….being able to make my army list would be king while I'm at work.

Thanks Again

Reorder-

Thank you so much for giving me that exception info, I've been trying to track that bug down for a week and can't reproduce it myself. As for a smart phone app, not anytime soon but it is something I want to do; maybe this summer. Also you can use go to Edit->Copy to get a text copy of your list if you want to paste it in notepad to print.
