"Remote Database" dropdown menu
This preference lets you choose which remote database to use. The default is
"Primary" . If the mirrored remote database is unavailable, a second choice,
"Mirror" , can be chosen.
The remote database is used by Lotto Sorcerer for updating drawings; checking
for program updates; checking subscription status; downloading prior drawings;
and installing new lotteries via the Lottery Setup Wizard. If any of these services
encounter a problem they will automatically switch to the alternate database.
Default File Location
This dropdown menu selector lets you choose where the Open and Save file dialogs
will default to. You have your choice between your Desktop, your Documents
Folder or any custom location. For maximum functionality, we strongly recommend
you keep it on the default setting ( "Documents Folder" ).
