Debonairs Pizza Golf Day

Cosoft sponsored the 13th hole at the recent Debonairs Pizza Golf Day. All players were greeted with a smile by our two promotion girls and then immediately required to down a shot of Caramel Vodka. The 14th hole required players to mount a mechanical bull and hang on for dear life. The vodka had just enough time to settle nicely for their bull ride. Here are some photo's from the day.

Windows 98 no longer runs Aura.

We stopped supporting Windows 98 over 5 years ago, but Aura has still been able to run on it. From version onwards, Aura will not run on Windows 98 at all.

If you still have workstations running Windows 98, we recommend purchasing a new server and downgrading your current server to a workstation to replace the Windows 98 machine. If you have more than one Windows 98 machine, these will need to be replaced. You will not be able to upgrade the version of Windows. A new machine will need to be purchased.
