If you are programming your Voter Card Encoders (aka "Spyrus") with VCE 1.1.4, please ensure that ALL of your old style Manager Cards will work with that version of the software. The new cards labelled "Supervisor Card" are already in a format that will work with 1.1.4, and Manager Cards produced after Feb 2002 are also in a format that will work with 1.1.4, but older style Manager Cards (pre-Feb 2002) will need to be upgraded otherwise they will not work with 1.1.4 (the VCE will display "Remove Card".)
To upgrade an old style Manager Card, insert it into a VCE with 1.1.3 software (or 1.1.2.) The VCE will prompt you to "Upgrade Super Card?". Press "YES". If the Manager Card has already been upgraded, then the VCE will display "Super Mode, Reload Keys?".
Please ensure that all cards marked "Manager Card" have been properly upgraded at the county warehouse before they are distributed to the precincts.
