To upgrade your existing 10.00, 10.01, 10.02, 10.03, 10.04, 10.05 or 10.06 installation click here (8.4MB). Just download, run and unzip.


Full 10.07 Installation kit - Download 32 bit Windows version (276MB). If Microsoft Office 2010 32 bit is already installed on your computer then you must download the 32 bit Windows version and ensure Microsoft Office 2010 SP2 is installed (Open up MS Word and go to File, Help and ensure the Version number is 14.0.7* (32 bit)).  If Microsoft Office 2013 32 bit is already installed on your computer then you must download the 32 bit Windows version.

Full 10.07 Installation kit - Download 64 bit Windows version (341MB).  If Microsoft Office 2010 64 bit is already installed on your computer then you must download the 64 bit Windows version and ensure Microsoft Office 2010 SP2 is installed (Open up MS Word and go to File, Help and ensure the Version number is 14.0.7* (64 bit)).  If Microsoft Office 2013 64 bit is already installed on your computer then you must download the 64 bit Windows version.

Most users who have Microsoft Office 2010/13 installed on their computer installed the 32 bit version - this is the default.  This is still the case even if the operating system (Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10) is 64 bit!

Install the 32 bit version if you are not sure which version you need (see below instructions).  If you do not have Microsoft Office 2010/13 installed you can install the 32 bit or 64 bit version of the Cub package.


Installation V10.07


Installation is a six step process.

1. If you have been running an earlier version of the Cub Pack Records Database, then make a backup of your existing data to a folder on your C: drive or better still, to your flash disk. Use the backup functionality provided in the earlier version of the Cub Pack Records Database.

2. If you made a backup, verify that the backup worked by using Windows Explorer to ensure files were copied to your flash disk as expected.

3. Do not continue if you have not verified your backup.

4. Uninstall the old Cub Pack Records Database by going to the Control Panel  and clicking on "Add/Remove" (XP) or "Programs and Features" (Windows 7).

5. Close all programs and packages so that nothing can interfere with the Scout Troop Records Database installation.

6. Download and install the 32 bit Windows version (276MB), unzip to your C: drive and run CubSto_x86\setup.exe OR download and install the  64 bit Windows version (341MB), unzip to your C: drive and run CubSto_x64\setup.exe.  (See above for which version you should download).

If you are asked to reboot your computer select 'No'. You can reboot after you get the "Cub Pack Records Database Setup has completed sucessfully" message.

7. If you have an already existing database from an earlier version, run the Cub Pack Records Database and go to Import and navigate to your backup folder. The name of the file to import is one of the below files depending on which version you were previously running:

  • CubDat*.accdb (you will only see .accdb if file suffixes are turned on) OR
  • Whatever you renamed the file to be.
