If you're thinking about purchasing petBASE 9D, you should first download the free Evaluator program, to ensure that it fully meets your requirements and to determine which options you require. If you currently have an earlier version, you can upgrade to petBASE 9D as explained below.
petBASE 9D Evaluator
This free program is exactly the same as the full program, including all optional features, except as follows:-
(1) The fictitious name 'Clayworth Dog Daycare' appears on the main menus and most print-outs. If you purchase the full program, this will be changed to your business name.
(2) The maximum number of customers or suppliers that can be added is limited to 10.
To download petBASE 9D Evaluator version 9.01 (Build 84) please follow these steps:-
Click here to download (ie save) the installation file petBASE_901D.exe to your Downloads folder.
Close any open applications, open your Downloads folder, then double-click the downloaded file petBASE_901D.exe. The petBASE 9D Setup Wizard should now appear: follow the prompts to install petBASE 9D Evaluator. Note that the program will install to C:\petBASE9D.
If the installation doesn't work, please right-click petBASE_901D.exe, select 'Properties' and check that the file size (not 'size on disk') is correct: it should be 16,586,064 bytes; if it's not, you should download again.
If you have any problems with downloading or installing petBASE 9D Evaluator, please e-mail us and we'll try to help.
Please Note. When you first run the Evaluator, the Bookings main menu will appear; click here to see what it should look like. If you can't see all of it, eg if the bottom tabs are hidden by your Windows Taskbar, reduce the Zoom Factor in the top right-hand corner of the display. The Introducing petBASE form will initially be superimposed over the main menu. This contains a selection of subjects from petBASE's comprehensive Help system, which will provide you with a useful introduction to the program. It's strongly recommended that you read all of the subjects in this introduction, as it will save you valuable time later on. It will also help you decide which program options you require.
Having tested the Evaluator, if you decide that petBASE 9D meets your requirements and you wish to purchase, please e-mail us, giving the options that you require and your business name. You'll then receive a PayPal payment request, which you can pay by credit/debit card or from your PayPal account, if you have one. On receipt of your payment, we'll e-mail you your Program Key, which will enable you to activate your full program.
petBASE_900D.exe is digitally-signed, which certifies that the downloaded software is actually from the publisher, and that it hasn't been tampered with since publication. The certificate names the publisher as David Rodney Jones (the author of petBASE); this name will appear in a security window when you install petBASE 9D. If you have Windows 10 with the 'new' Microsoft Edge browser (introduced in 2020), please click here for further information.
Windows 10 note
If you have Windows 10 and have set Display Scaling to more than 100% (eg 125%), you may find that the text in petBASE 9D (and some other applications) is rather blurred. You can rectify this as follows: right-click petBASE 9D on your Windows Start Screen, then select More / Open file location and right-click the petBASE shortcut file. Now select Properties / Compatibility / Change high DPI settings / Override high DPI scaling behaviour, scaling performed by Application. This will eliminate the blurred text and reduce your petBASE display to its unscaled size. You can now use petBASE's Zoom function to adjust the display to the required size, without further blurring.
