I have upgraded to a new Windows 7 PC. When I try to log in I get the new version of BBO, which I am not comfortable with. Can I access the old version 5.2.6? and if so how please?

Go to the home page, and click where it says "Looking for our older downloadable Windows program?" and reinstall the old version.

I'm not sure what that means. When you go to www.bridgebase.com, you don't see the line I referred to?

Thanks for your help, but I do not see any reference such as that on the home page!

Is it possible to copy a link?

It should be directly below the two boxes that say "Free - Learn to play bridge" and "Free - Play a quick game of bridge".

Not sure how I did it, but happily I am back into familiar territory!

Very grateful.

If you mean the Flash version, use this link: http://www.bridgebas...ient/client.php

But it will stop working at the end of the year when browsers remove Flash.

The Windows version is now no longer allowed at all, except for Vugraph operators and yellows.

You must use the web version now, so there's nothing to download.
