Hello dontzy and welcome to the BBO forums.

There are 2 pieces of software for playing BBO with on a PC. One is a downloadable client that you install on your computer. This is a legacy client and cannot be used by new accounts. The newer way uses a Flash client. To use this go to the BBO home page and click on "Click to Play or Watch Bridge". This should take you to the login window. For this version you do not need to download anything.

I receive this message when I try to login :

Login Denied. Obsolete client. Please login via our web page at ...

Err = 788


My account it's new :rolleyes:


Welcome to bridge base online. Some time ago (a couple of years now I think) new members (or at least new aliases) were forced to log onto the Bridge Base Online gaming service through a FLASH client in their browser. As a new member you have to do so as well. You need adobe flash installed on your windows PC, and then either click the following link:

http://www.bridgebas...ient/client.php or go to the http://www.bridgebase.com website and click the play bridge now link that takes to the link I posted first (for security reasons, you should not trust links posted in public places like this, just go the bridgebase dot com website and click play bridge now link... But I know the links above are safe :) )....

The message you got (Err = 788) was from the windows program NetbridgeVu.exe which still allows old timers to log in, but BBO no longer supports netbridgevu and hasn't added new features to it in a long while, while the Flash client gets a lot of new bells and whistles. If you have any more problems, we can try to address them off line. Feel free to write me directly at inquiry At bridgebase dot com with any questions.
