Installing the Shanky Holdem Poker Bot

After downloading the

Shanky Holdem Poker Bot

open the installation file called holdem_bot.exe and follow the installer steps.

Installer Screenshot

Unless you changed the installation path, the Shanky Holdem Poker Bot was installed on your c: drive to a folder named poker in a subfolder named data. Seven files should be in that subfolder. Therefore the bot folder can be accessed by going to my computer and then Local Disk C: and then opening the folder poker and then the subfolder data.

Data Folder

The bot itself is named svchost and can be opened on an XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8 machine by simply double-clicking it. On a Vista machine the bot must be run as administrator. You can do this by right clicking on svchost.exe and choosing the Run As Administrator menu item in the pop up menu. You can set the Shanky Holdem Poker Bot to always run as administrator by right-clicking on svchost.exe, choosing Properties, going to the Shortcut tab, clicking on the Advanced button, and checking the box that says Run as Administrator.

Run as Administrator

Please note that additional temporary files will appear in the bot folder once you open the bot, including the session log (which is a text file titled holdem).

Use of Desktop Icons: By default the installation program creates a shortcut called svchost on your desktop that can be used to start the bot. If you choose to use the desktop program icon, we recommend renaming it. (The icon image is generic-looking for stealth reasons.) To rename the shortcut: Right-click on the icon and choose rename from the pop up menu. Think of a creative name for it; perhaps something that sounds like another piece of software such as Mail Grabber or Spy Killer or Photo Editor.

Windows 8. The bot will work on a normal (non-touch screen) Windows 8 computer, but only if you first change the Windows theme to Windows 7. To do this, right-click on an empty spot on the desktop and select Personalize. You will see the theme choice settings there and can change back to a more traditional windows theme.

Windows 7 Theme

English Language Regional Settings in Windows. Our bot needs your Windows language to be in English at most of our supported poker rooms (the special Italian and French rooms supported are exceptions). From the Control Panel in Windows, find the Language and Regional Options. Set this to English United States. (Please note that English United Kingdom can cause problems due to their using commas in place of decimals, so do not use that.)
