1. How many coaches use Play Manager? Do they like it?

Thousands of football, basketball, hockey and soccer coaches around North America, Europe, and other parts of the world use Play Manager software everyday. To say they like it would be an understatement. Visit our
Testimonials page to see what we mean!



2. Is there a Demo available?

There's no need for a Demo. As of August 2012, Play Manager 4.0 Professional Edition is free. The owners will continue to make the software available to the coaching community as long as interest remains high. To download the full version, click on the appropriate link:



3. What are the minimum requirements?

Play Manager is a Windows program and will run on virtually any Windows machine. For use on a Mac, use appropriate Windows emulation software.



4. What technical support is available?

The software is offered "as is." To learn more about its features, try the tutorials. Also experiment. You may also try to reach other Play Manager users via
Twitter or Facebook.



5. Will there be further technical improvements?

The owners have no immediate plans to enhance Play Manager. However, it has long been part of the product's roadmap to build an "Export to Web" feature for the animated plays. Given the PM4 playbook specs, this would not be a difficult undertaking, and it may get done in the future.



6. Why is the "free" version still asking for Activation?

In some cases, if you have previously installed a "paid version" of Play Manager, it will interfere with the "free" version. The solution is to uninstall the old version of Play Manager and then install the "free" version. Be sure to backup any playbook files before uninstalling.



7. Why does the Help file not open?

Ironically, most newer Windows systems will not natively run the "Windows Help" format. To resolve this issue, obtain the Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe) for the versions of Windows that support it. Click
