Top Current Questions
Q: My lottery subscription updates no longer work. How can I fix this?
A: Make sure your "Remote Database" setting in Preferences > Interface is set to "Primary". The Mirror database is no longer available.
Q: Australia's Oz Lotto changed its extra balls from 2 to 3 balls. How do I fix this?
A: You will have to set it up as a new, custom lottery in the Lottery Setup Wizard. In the Lottery Setup Wizard, click the 'No' button when asked 'Do you see your lottery on this list?'. Then follow the steps to set it up as a new lottery.
Q: I got a new computer. How do I get my registered version up and running?
- You need to download and install the appropriate Evaluation Version: if you are a registered user of Lotto Sorcerer version 9, download the Evaluation Version from here; if you are a registered user of an older version, go to the archives, find the Evaluation Version for your specific version, and download and install it.
- When you run Lotto Sorcerer on your new computer, it will generate a new serial number. You will need this serial number in order to generate a replacement registration code (because the registration code is based on the serial number). You can then generate a replacement registration code for your new computer by clicking here.
Q: How do I transfer my lottery database and settings from the old computer over to the new computer?
A: Copy the entire "Lotto Sorcerer v9 Files" folder from your Documents folder of your old computer to the Documents folder on your new computer. This action will copy your lottery database, preferences, playslip settings, etc., over to the new computer.
Q: I updated my operating system, now Lotto Sorcerer reverted to the Evaluation Version. How do I get it back to the Registered Version?
A: Because Lotto Sorcerer's serial number changed, you will need a replacement registration code to convert it into the Registered Version. You can generate a replacement registration code yourself by going to the "Replace Registration Code" webpage.
Q: Does Lotto Sorcerer work under Windows 11?
A: We have not tested it with Windows 11. We have had several users report that Lotto Sorcerer works fine with Windows 11. We have received only one report that it does not work with that OS. We recommend that you thoroughly test Lotto Sorcerer before purchasing. If the evaluation version works, then the registered version should work as well. However, keep in mind that it is possible that any future update of Windows 11 could "break" Lotto Sorcerer.
Q: Powerball added Monday drawings, but Lotto Sorcerer still shows only Wednesday and Saturday as drawing days. What should be done?
A: Use Lotto Sorcerer's menu item "Lottery Structure > Edit Lottery Settings". In the Edit Lottery Setting window, choose "Powerball" from the dropdown menu, check the box for "Monday", then click the "Make Changes" button.
Q: My lottery changed its drawing pool from 1 to 45 to 1 to 48. Can you fix this?
A: You can easily fix this yourself by using Lotto Sorcerer's menu item "Lottery Structure > Edit Lottery Settings", where you can alter settings such as the number pool and the days in which the lottery is drawn.
Q: I am getting the error message "IOException in module 0A6" when launching Lotto Sorcerer. (Windows only)
A: You will need to "Add an Exclusion" setting to Windows Defender, and exclude the "Lotto Sorcerer v9 Files" folder, which is located in your Documents folder. For details as to how to add an exclusion to Windows Defender, please visit here.
Q: I am getting the error message "exception of type '06' in module '2FA-06' has been trapped" when launching Lotto Sorcerer. (macOS only)
