- PC-Horse File Structure
In order to make PC-Horse file structure more compatible with networked computers in
organisations (companies and educational institutions), we have changed our file structure.
For existing installations, PC-Horse version 3.21 will rearrange the files automatically.
The changes are:
- All userdefined files are now saved in one folder (\Documents\PC-Horse3\UserData\)
- The Resourcefiles folder (pc-horse_data3\) is moved from the PC-Horse3 root folder
to the public systemfolder (\Users\Public\Documents\PC-Horse3\pc-horse_data3\)
- The program executable is still in the location recommended
by Windows (C:\Program Files (x86)\PC-Horse3)
- Stable screen: New "Stable settings" tab for preselected Breed and Quick feed list
- New installer software for PC-Horse
- Max advisable intake of starch in a ration lowered from 5 to 2 g/kg of bodyweight per day
according to contemporary understanding of safety levels for starch handling in the hindgut.
Max advisable intake of starch in a single meal lowered from 2 g/kg bodyweight
to 1.5 g/kg bodyweight. The text of the languagefile is also updated.
Since PC-Horse downloads the latest version of the languagefile at start,
a too high starch intake according to the levels implemented in the new version
(3.21, starch shown with red text), will be shown with black in earlier versions (3.20 and below).
We apologize for this discrepancy, which disappears as soon as you update to version 3.21.
