Changed lines 7-12 from:
A: One idea that has been brought up is a web based version of the card wizard, so that cards can be created and printed from any platform.  If you are interested in seeing this please let us know!
to:
A: Alternatively we have created an example Python program that shows how to create your own card import file. As well at the import file you will need to create a print file so that the physical top up cards can  sold to students or other users. You will probably want to customise the print file for you own organisation.

You can find the program on GitHub.

A: The [[https://www.papercut.com/products/ng/tour/topup_cards/ | card wizard]] at the current time is a Windows-Only program.  This is because it uses Microsoft Word and its Macro language ([=VBScript=]) to perform a Mail Merge.  Card generation is a once-off procedure and Windows is not required to actually use or operate cards.  Administrators running PaperCut on a Mac or Linux server can use any Windows system to generate their cards, and once the cards are printed and the numbers imported, Windows is no longer required.  The card wizard can easily be downloaded onto any Windows system via PaperCut NG's web browser interface.
