V-Soft Communications releases Windows version of FCC’s TVStudy program
This new program is
an implementation of the FCC's "TVStudy" software that runs on
Microsoft Windows. TVStudy for Windows uses the FCC's OET 69 methodology

written by the FCC, it always provides the correct answers.
What V-Soft has done is made it possible to run the original FCC’s TVStudy
program (designed to for Linux or Mac) on a Windows computer. They have also
vastly simplified the download and install process. By providing the program
and all its data on a flash drive, they have been able to save the user of
hours of downloading, joining files together, decompressing, getting all the
files into the right place, and figuring out how to handle the programs various
V-Soft provides the software to install the program
and its associated data to the user’s computer. They also provide detailed
instructions on how to install the MySQL database engine (which is required by
the TVStudy software to run.) The user receives a full native Windows

Windows PC. There is no need to buy a special computer for it (Mac) and no need
to deal with Linux.
The V-Soft package comes with a
streamlined graphical based install process that has been tested. V-Soft provides
an easy way to get fresh TV station data for use with the software. The company
