Wincom program install -UNIKON

The Wincom program that resides on your computer is very straight forward to install.

WARNING READ THIS CAUTION FIRST!!

The only caution are the 2 possible Security warnings the first time wincom sends data to the Internet:

1st WARNING - Unknown Publisher - uncheck the check box to ask this question every time wincom starts

2nd WARNING Windows or Virus Checker Firewall - allow wincom to connect to the Internet select UNBLOCK

IF YOU DONOT ACCEPT THIS UNKNOWN PUBLISHER AND UNBLOCK YOUR FIREWALL, YOUR COMPUTER WILL TREAT WINCOM AS A VIRUS AND IN SOME CASES ERASE IT FROM YOUR COMPUTER

**********************

The install is very straight forward.

You will need a computer that has Internet access Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 - 32 or 64 bit operating system.

1.Connect your clock to the PC with the special deister serial cord and turn the clock on.

2. When you click the setup link sent via email SAVE the Setup file to the desktop

3. Close the download box when finished downloading. Goto the desktop click the setup icon, follow the prompts to the end. (the program will open automatically after the install is finished) If the clock is properly connected to the PC the menu will boot up.(if you do not get the menu your clock is not turned on or you do not have the right serial cord or you do not have Internet access)

4. Press 1 and enter on the Wincom Menu - The computer will poll the clock for its bird list and try to upload them to the Internet. Now is when the two SECURITY WARNINGS will appear if they are going to, some computers will give none some only one.

Unknown Publisher warning - uncheck the check box to ask this question every time wincom starts Click OK

Firewall or Virus Checker Warning - You must allow wincom to connect to the Internet select UNBLOCK on Windows XP or ALLOW on Windows Vista Click OK

If your race secretary has gotton you pre-registered properly on Wincompanion, your birds should now be on the Internet. Open your Club site on Wincompanion, Click Birds on the Menu at the top of the page , select your name press Go and wa la!! the bird list in your clock should be there

5. Last step is to test the Race Key. A Race or Training toss must first be started by your Race Secretary on Wincompanion before you can send Race birds or trainers to the Internet. From the wincom menu press 2 and enter and once the menu says posting and comes back your race or trainers should be on the Internet. If no birds appear in the race or trainer you may not be registered properly or you did not load your birds up first.

Wincom program install -BENZING

(Order the NULL Modem cable from Siegel's when you order your Docking Station - NOTE: This cord is included when you buy a new Club Unit OR you can order one off the Internet)

The setup and install for the Benzing M1 with a docking station is the exact same as the UNIKON above through step 3.

Read the security cautions be sure to UNBLOCK or ALLOW when the program tries to send data to the Internet the very first time.

Once the progam installs it will open.

It will look at each of the installed COM ports on your computer. When it finds one it will look to see if the docking station is connected to it.

If it is it will say Found Clock on COM 1

Then it will say Testing Connection to remote Host (it is trying to connect to the Internet)

Then it will say Connected to remote Host ( if it cannot connect it will say Cannot connect to remote host, wincom is shutting down)

If it connects to the remote host then the program will say:

...waiting

Thats it, wincom is installed and waiting for a pigeon to clock. As soon as a bird is clocked you will see it say:

New Arrival
Posting Data

It will do this for each newly arrived bird.
