Make sure, if possible, that you do not have an ENGARDE10 directory inside another ENGARDE10 directory, by moving the contents of the deeper ENGARDE10 directory to the directory that contains it.

If you already have Engarde 9, copy with Windows, from ENGARDE9 to ENGARDE10:

  • your keys (if you have licenses), they are in the Ressources1\Cles directory, they must be copied to the directory of the same name of ENGARDE10
  • your personal formulas (if you have some), copy them to the ENGARDE10\Ressources1\mesFormules directory by creating this directory if necessary

Engarde 10 is ready for use. You can launch it by double clicking on the Engarde10 application.

Applications are signed with ARISTOD editor. ARISTOD is a partner company of ANPV-log. Engarde10 has three possible ways of functioning: MINI, BASIC and PRO. The purchase of the license allows running in mode BASIC or PRO.

The directory organization is as follows:

The SystemeEngarde10 directory contains 4 applications:

  • Engarde10 for managing competitions

  • DiapoEngarde to display results
  • ShowPiste to display information of the pistes.

It is recommended to create a shortcut for SystemeEngarde10 on the desktop and in the start menu. If you use often Engarde, you can also have it on the task bar.

The Competitions directory is used to store competitions. If it does not exist at the installation, it is created automatically afterwards. When opening or creating a competition, it is saved in this repertoire by Engarde. It is possible, however, to save the competition at another location.

The Ressources1 directory contains:

  • The "Banner" directory is only used by Engarde PRO. We put images that Engarde PRO can place at the top of the documents. In FIE competition, it is advisable to make a banner with the logo of the FIE, that of the organizing club and those of the main sponsors.

  • The "Textes" directory contains Engarde texts and help files in different languages. Up-to-date languages ​​are French, English, Spanish and Italian (Spanish and Italian are often updated a few days after the version changes).
