Registration
Before you can run BBSchedule, you must have a funded Betfair Account and you must Register as a Chromaweb Member.
You can join Betfair here.
You can Register with Chromaweb here.

After Registering with Chromaweb you will be taken to your Chromaweb Members Page where you can obtain your unique Application Subscription Token, which is required before you can run BBSchedule.

Downloading and Installing BBSchedule
Once you are Registered with both Chromaweb and Betfair, download BBSchedule

If you accept the Default location, the .zip will be downloaded to your 'Downloads' folder:



Double-click on the bbschedule.zip, and then double-click bbschedule.exe, and the application should then install automatically and you will see a shortcut icon on your desktop:

Click the icon to start BBSchedule.

If you encounter any problems during or after Installation, please consult `Installation Troubleshooting` at the bottom of this page.

Login
Assuming you have just downloaded and installed BBShedule, then yours will be the latest version and you will presented with the log-in page:

You LogIn using your Betfair Username and Password.

Before showing you the LogIn page, BBSchedule makes one call to chromaweb.com, to check whether you have the latest version, whether there is an update available, or whether your version has been disabled.

This is new requirement from Betfair which must be complied with by all API-NG applications.

The call is made before you have provided any LogIn details, and contains only the number of the version of BBSchedule that you are running. Nothing else about you, your computer or anything else.

If you have the Latest version, you are then presented with the LogIn page.

You LogIn using your Betfair Username and Password.

These are transmitted to Betfair via https, the secure Internet Protocol, so your Login is as secure as it is when you are using the Betfair website.
 
New Versions
If there is a newer version of BBSchedule available, the LogIn page will display a message similar to this, and you should download the Latest Version as soon as convenient.



You will, however, still be able to use your current Version.

Disabled Versions
It is a new requirement by Betfair that, if necessary, superseded versions can be disabled.

Hopefully this will be a very rare event, but if it does happen, instead of the LogIn page, you will see a small window like this:

In this event you will not be able to use your current version of BBSchedule, so you should click the download button to install the Latest version
   


Activate your Subscription Token

If this is the first time you have run BBSchedule, or you are Installing on a different computer, or you have just renewed your Subscription, then you will need to Activate your Subscription Token, and BBSchedule will look like this:



Simply enter the Subscription Token that we eMailed you when Registering. and hit 'Go'

If you've lost / forgotten your Subscription Token, then you can always retrieve it via your Chromaweb Members Homepage.

Assuming the status of your Subscription Token is ok, you will be shown an appropriate message.

Click 'Go' again and MT3 will start running and open your Defaults Tab.





Installation Troubleshooting
Provided you have the latest version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on your computer the installation should be trouble free.

However the most common problem is that you may not have the latest JRE.

Like most programs these days the JRE comes in two flavours: 32 bit and 64 bit.

The MT3 Installer (or the Installer for your custom Bot) contains both 32 and 64 bit versions, and will Install whichever 'flavour' is suitable for your computer's operating system.

However a problem can arise if your computer is 64 bit capable but is running the 32 bit version of Java, and the problem can be compounded because Oracle's Java download page will most likely say your version of the JRE is up-to-date.

It is up-to-date, but it's 32 bit!

To solve the problem you should go to: https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp and download the 64 bit manual installer:



Once you have downloaded and installed the latest JRE, you may also have to re-install your Bot.

But, once this, admittedly, rather tiresome procedure has been followed, you should now (at last !) be able to run the application..
