DRC 3.0 Update - Build 3.16 is Available

  I just released the latest update to Digital Rockhound's Companion Version 3.16

 Bug Fix:
  • DRC updates in DRC.exe is working again!
  • Added Run as Administrator for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users
  This update also rolls out DRC 3.0 to anyone using DRC version 2.00 as a free update.
  You can download the using DRC 3.0 if you have version 3.0.16 or higher, otherwise, you must download it manually.   Download DRC_Update.exe

BTW, DRC will not run on Windows Touch Tables using WinRT.  WinRT is a variation of Windows 8 but is not backwards compatible with Windows 7.

For Windows 8 / Windows 8.1
After you download DRC_Update.exe to your Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 workstation, you map have Windows SmartScreen appear and warn you about the file.

Click run anyway

You will also get a Windows prompt, that DRC_UPDATE.exe is attempting to update your system, click Yes to allow it.

In south-central Indiana geodes can be found in the walls of road cuts and other exposures of rocks of the Harrodsburg Limestone and Ramp Creek Formation. For several miles on either side of this outcrop area, geodes are abundant along streams

DRC Updates

I have no idea why companies will allow people to share photos and videos but hate when you want to share files in general.  Anyway, this is the 3rd time Microsoft has done me wrong this way.

Well, DRC updates are broken. Apparently, 5/20/2014, Microsoft shutdown part of SkyDrive. DRC used to download updates from my SkyDrive account.  I am looking at the best way to do this.  I post another update when I have this fix.

Sorry for the inconvience.

Current DRC update  3.14 can be downloaded from here:
