(Upgrade your Existing Program only) (Latest Modification Date
Install this file overwriting your existing Dart Tournament File (C:\Darts\DartTournament.exe) only if you already have the Tournament Program loaded on your computer. It does not have the starting Name/Address file so it will not overwrite your names/addresses that you already have entered. It does not contain the Seeding files, like the original installation does, which are necessary to have the Tournament Program work properly.
