Caddie 9



Caddie 9 was developed to run on operating systems available in 2002 like Windows NT, 2000 and XP 32-bit environments.

If you want to run the old Caddie 9 software on newer operating systems like Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit) you might have to use the system differently.

For instance, if you select the Lines > Parallel button, you cannot start typing the distance in the dialogue as you would have on Windows XP.

The only way around this, without having to use your mouse, is to press the TAB key on your keyboard.  This will highlight the current distance(like in XP), and then you can type in your desired distance.  This is the only shortcut and this step will have to be repeated every time you use such a command.
