I have updated versions 3.0, 3.1.1, 3.2.1, and 3.3, to versions 3.0.1, 3.1.2, 3.2.2, and 3.3.1, respectively.  They are unchanged except for the fix for this issue.  That means if you are using an older version of the TD and don't want to upgrade to version 3.4, you can download one of these versions and effectively stay exactly where you are today, but have this fix.

Actually this also includes the fix for the missed keystrokes/mouse clicks on Windows 10.

For older versions, see

I've not applied a fix for version 2.5.14 yet.  My testing doesn't see an issue with that version, although I haven't yet investigated why.  If you're experiencing an issue with that version, please reply and let me know.

The fixes get rolled up into other updates, so I'm not the least bit surprised there are other updates that cause the same issue.

The fix is actually in the launcher part of the application, so I'm planning to rollout updated earlier versions (3.3.1, for example) with the updated launcher.  This will include the missing keystroke fix.

I've released version 3.4.2 with a fix for this issue.

For those who wish to continue using earlier versions, I will be releasing updates as time permits.

Help Me / Dec 12, 2017 Windows Update breaks TD with "Access Denied"
« on: December 13, 2017, 03:55:19 PM »
A Microsoft Windows patch that was released to most people on December 12, 2017, caused an issue with the Tournament Director application.  The error manifests itself in a couple of ways.  You may see an "Access Denied" error and/or a message indicating the message catalogs could not be loaded.  The Tournament Director application exits during startup due to this error.

As this issue was just discovered, there is no definitive fix available at this time.  However, I am working on the issue and a potential fix has been discovered.  If the fix is successful, I will release a fixed version as soon as possible, hopefully in the next 24 to 48 hours.

It is believe this issue is caused by the following Windows Updates, based on your version of Windows:

KB4054522 (Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard)
KB4054521 (Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1
KB4053579 (Windows 10 Version 1607, Windows Server 2016)

I cannot recommend removing a security patch as it may lead to a security vulnerability.  However, uninstalling the above Windows Update may resolve the issue until an updated Tournament Director is available.

It looks like Microsoft released a patch yesterday that addressed "Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine and Microsoft Edge."  Looks like it's for Windows 7 and Windows 10, and likely Windows 8, Windows Server (various), and possibly Vista and even XP, if they're still shipping patches for XP.  So everyone is potentially affected.

I just need to determine why and how the TD is affected.  Sigh.  Microsoft.

Thanks for the info everyone.  I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the heads-up.  I'll keep an eye out on updates...

Obviously a bug, and actually already fixed, just need to complete the other work for 3.4.2 to get it released.  If I can get the time I'll see about releasing a patch that will fix this issue.

General Discussion / Re: Tracking Points on Website Exporting TD Results
« on: December 11, 2017, 11:16:27 PM »
There was a third-party site plug-in that the TD integrated with a few years ago, but it disappeared and support was dropped.  I honestly can't think of the name at the moment.  It was a Joomla plug-in I believe.

The TD still integrates with several sites that will manage your poker league.  The TD will upload tournaments directly to and  The same integration was planned and actually coded for, but that site's developer had to move on to another project before integration could be completed.  The TD still exports to format, so it's definitely a usable option.  It just doesn't connect directly to the site and upload tournaments for you.  You have to do it manually.  Same with

In 3.4.1 I discovered there was a way to NOT display the system print dialog.  It's an option on the "Printing" category on the Preferences tab.  Since the system print dialog doesn't open, the print job goes straight to the queue and prints without any confirmation.

Help Me / Re: Edit Mini-Clock
« on: December 07, 2017, 10:11:20 PM »
The mini-clock is not configurable.  If you need to see more info in the Settings window, you can use the Dashboard.  If you're looking to see that additional information when the mini-clock is displayed on the built-in screens (Seating Chart, Player Rankings, etc), I'm afraid you're out of luck.  I'll put a note to see about adding that info, though.

Beta Testing / Re: V3.4.1 Black Screen & TD Will Not Reopen
« on: December 07, 2017, 04:37:41 PM »
The not-opening-after-reboot is puzzling.  It sounds like some of the application was corrupted.  Usually when the application won't open, it's usually a preferences issue and so I would suggest deleting the preferences file.  It's rare the code would get corrupted (so rare I'm not sure I've ever heard of it).  Reinstalling the application won't affect your data, including your preferences, so it seems it was unlikely a problem with your preferences.  I'm stumped.

Could be anything, but given the limited abilities of the TD, I'd look into the print queue and Windows.  What I mean is, the TD can only tell Windows to print the page.  After that it's up to Windows.

Btw, are you using the Auto-print (sending of hotkeys) method, or the new method that bypasses the print dialog altogether?

Help Me / Re: Change payout towards end to include bubble
« on: December 06, 2017, 11:07:47 AM »
Is there another prize level in your configuration that fits the number of prizes you want to award?  For example, you said 12 players pays off 3 prizes.  Is there another level, say 20 players, that pays off 4 prizes?  If so it's easy, because you can override the automatic prize level selection. Just click the "Automatic" button on the Prizes tab, then press the Configure button to configure the automatic prizes.  Then press the "Override" button at the bottom, click the level that has an additional prize, and press OK.
