ScoreManager and its companion programmes are Windows only programmes and requires Microsoft Windows 7, 8 or 10. They will not run on iOS, macOS, Android or Google Chrome.

ScoreManager requires Microsoft Access or a copy of the free Access runtime to be installed on the computer. If neither of these programmes is already present on the computer ScoreManagers installation process will provide the opportunity to download and install the free Access 2010 runtime software.

The Access 2010 runtime will not need to be installed if Microsoft Access 2013 or 2016 ,or Access runtime 2013 or 2016 are already installed. If Access runtime 2007 is installed please uninstall this software before installing ScoreManager. Any software requiring Access 2007 runtime will run as normal under Access 2010 runtime.


  • any laptop, pc or tablet running Windows 7, 8 or 10
  • ScoreManager will not work on iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, Mac computers, ChromeBooks or Android phones and tablets

Small Competitions with a Single Panel

Small competitions can be run entirely from just one pc or laptop. However if you are intending to display results to athletes and spectators using scoreboards from the DisplayManager programme, a separate computer or laptop which is linked to the computer running ScoreManager will be required.

Large Competitions or Competitions with Multiple Panels

For large competitions or competitions with multiple judging panels working simultaneously and where your recorders are sitting next to the panel, it is recommended that the ScoreManager extension, PanelRecorder, used. It should be installed on computers located at each panel which are networked to the main computer holding the ScoreManager data file. In these situations ScoreManager should be installed on only one computer in the network to prevent users connecting to the wrong data file.

It is recommended that the network linking these panel computers be a wired network rather than a wireless network. A wired network will be faster, easier to set up plus it will avoid slow connections and possible data loss from interference to a wireless network.


No connection to the internet is required to run ScoreManager or any of its extensions except UploadManager.
