Try Removing SLHHTTP.INI Configuration File in Advantage Plus

  1. First, please make sure you have the most up to date version of Lottery Updater. run lusetup.exe here to install the current version.
  2. Run Lottery Updater again and if the problem is fixed, you don't need to finish these steps.
  3. If the new version has not fixed the problem, make sure Advantage Gold and Lottery Updater are closed.
  4. Go to the folder where Advantage Plus is installed, usually C:\GH. If you do not know how to locate this file, view instructions here.
  5. Locate slhhttp.ini and delete the file.
  6. Run Lottery Updater again.
Lottery Updater will recreate the slhftp.ini file and may take a few minutes to reinitialize itself. After it's done, you should be able to use Lottery Updater again, unless the problem was actually a connection problem. Go to Choose Your Favorite Lotteries to reselect which games you want to download, as these settings were lost when the slhftp.ini file was deleted.
