Getting started



Volleyball Manager is easy to install and configure on your computer. Start the installation program install.exe and follow the instructions.

A single installation makes only sense if you want to run the server and administrator on two different computers.

Times between 10 sec and 2 minutes are common.<

  2. Start the Administrator Client: After starting the server you can open the administrator client. Therefor click on the corrosponding icon on the desktop or in the start menu.

  3. Test Volleyball Manager: After starting the server and administrator select Help->Help from the menu. In this manual read the sectioin Introduction->Quickstart.
