I develop software with Visual Basic, mainly database-applications (in the past also DOS-programs in Clipper). Some programs for download can be found here. Orders for software development are welcome.
Questions, requests, criticism etc. you can send to me by e-mail.

All listed programs should run under Windows 95, 98, 98SE, ME, NT, 2000 and XP.


Lotto645 V1.1/1.31 - german       screenshot 1, screenshot 2

A commercial success for me is Lotto645, a program for management and statistical calculation of the austrian lottery "6 aus 45" with all draws of Lotto and Joker since the beginning as well as winning calculation and computer generated tips.
Finally the version for Windows is ready. The sharewareversion can be download free by clicking on the link below. In the sharewareversion all functions for Joker are deactivated. The full version of the program on CD-ROM with manual costs EUR 25,-.

Update version 1.31
lotto645.exe - Lotto645 1.31. 2030 KB. Last update 2/20/2006.
For the update Lotto645 1.1 must be fully installed. Then you have to replace the old file lotto645.exe in the program directory (normally C:\Programs\Lotto645\) by the new one.

lotto645.dat - The up-to-date data file with all draws. Simply copy it to the Lotto645 program directory. 28 KB. Last update 11/17/2008.

Version history:
V1.31, 2/20/2006:
- Correction of the pricelist to EUR and correction of my homepage URL.
V1.3, 6/15/2000:
- Version 1.1 and 1.2 were made for different screen resolutions but not for "big fonts". Therefore there were some ugly overlappings and shifts on some elements of the forms. This problem is solved.
- The statistic window now starts with the full size of the screen an could be made smaller. A recalculation of the graphics is done by clicking on [Berechnen].
- Some corrections of the looks (contents of the info-window and start with [Shift+F1], status-line on main window, etc.).
V1.2, 6/13/2000:
- At the input-window the date was set to Windows-format but should have been entered in the format dd.mm.yyyy, what were not checked and were not documented. If the date was entered in a different format, the program crashed. The date now is set to the correct format and will be checked before saving.
- The order form in menu \Hilfe\Bestellen\ was updated.
V1.1, 5/19/2000
