Switchlist Generator

Switchlist Generator

Postby RodTT » Thu Dec 14, 2017 7:00 am

Is anyone interested in switchlists? If so, here's a Christmas present. It's a switchlist generator I wrote to provide a bit of operational interest when playing trains.

It also produces a simple type of carcard/waybill.

Instructions on how to use the program are available via the program's Help menu and can also be downloaded separately.

Program: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/newsforyou/swsetup.exe
Instructions: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/newsforyou/switcher.pdf

The program has been virus checked. I think it's pretty stable but if anyone uses it, please let me know if you encounter any problems. It's been tested on Windows 7 and 8, and I assume it will work on Windows 10.

I have Windows 10, and I will give it a try either later today or later this week, once I get my college assignments more or less ready for the week. (Two final exams this week).

Well, I finally got around to downloading the program and tried to install it, and for whatever reason, I could not get it to install.

I presume you got an error message? What was it?

Yes, I got an error message. When I get home from work, I will try again so I can get the message and write it down and then post it here.

The message that I got was that it was an app from an unknown source, and my computer would not let me install it.

I had to change some of my anti-virus settings to get it to install. Standby for my evaluation of the program.

Ok, I'll look forward to it. I have a list of possible enhancements to make if there is sufficient interest and it will be interesting to see if any of yours match mine.

I hope you have better things to do on Christmas day though!

Well, I took another crack at it, with the proper setup with my antivirus software, of course, and the program loads and runs just fine.

At present time I do not have an actual need for a switchlist generator, but I am sure that I will, once the big layout gets built, as there is only so much one can do with a demo layout with no switches on it.
