How to Link GGGolf to Acomba

    Follow

    1. Open up a File Explorer and select Network. Network is used to see all the other computers on the same Network as yours.

    2. Find the Server Computer in which the GGGolf Program is hosted on. Once selected, GGGolf will appear as a Shared File within it.

    Notes: If you are unsure as to which computer is hosting GGGolf or if you can’t find any computer on your Network, please contact your club technician as he is responsible for your equipment. We are not responsible for that.

    3. Select GGGolf again to see all the files within the Shared File.

    4. Find the folder called Install.

    5. Select the application called AcoODBC (or AcoODBC.exe) using the right-mouse button and select Run as Administrator.

    Note: The AcoODBC application absolutely needs to be opened using Administrator privileges for it to work for the next steps. If you cannot use Run as Administrator, contact your club technician as he is responsible for your equipment.)

    6. A message prompt will appear. Select Yes, and then OK for the second prompt.

    7. Open up File Explorer and select This PC.

    8. Within Devices and drives, select your C: drive.

    9. Select the Windows file folder and look for the folder named SysWOW64.

    10. Find the Application named odbcad32. To simplify the search, press the letter O three types on your keyboard.

    11. Run the program with Administrator permissions and select System DSN.

    12. Select Add and select Acomba ODBC Driver. If you can’t find it, repeat step 1 through 6 to install the driver.

    13. Fill out the data. The name of the source will always be Acomba, and the links for both Acomba and the society should look something like this respectively: [\\(nameofserver)\Acomba\Fortune] and [\\(nameofserver)\Acomba\F1000.DTA\(Nameofcompany)]. As for the user and password, use your Acomba credentials.

    Notes: How the link will be ultimately depends on how your files are setup. As long as the links finish both Fortune and F1000.DTA\Name of Company respectively is all that matters. If you are unsure the setup was done properly, use Test the Connection to see if the links are valid or not.

    14. Select Test the Connection. If the connexion is a success, proceed to the next step. If not, the message prompt will warn you where an error was encountered.

    15. Close down the ODBC Data Source and repeat Step 1-3, but with Acomba instead of GGGolf.

    16. Find the Application named WRInfo and run it as an Administrator.

    17. Once the program loads, go to the SDK tab and browse to find the installation folder if it isn’t already pre-loaded into the program. Follow Step 1-4 within the File Browser in order to find the SDK file inside of Fortune.

    Notes: Disregard the Warning prompt that might appear when the program is done loading.

    18. Once finished, it should look like this: \\(nameofserver\Acomba\Fortune\SDK\. Afterwards, select Save Settings.
