    Or should it go without a problem (them last famous words)

    Thanks
    Idntech,

    When you build the package make sure you test it on a machine connected to an smartboard because I noticed that on the older machines my package froze at 75percent this was due to an error message saying "HID bad environment" that stops the install. I had to log in and click OK and the install finished. I will be interested to see if this problem occurs? I assume you have RM PC's in your school\college? I found out on the older one I get this message but on the mini PC's and newer models I do not get this message. Let me know how you get on .

    Simon, would you happen to have a download link for the 9.7 version; I've trawled the interweb thingy for the past hour without success.

    Kind Regards,

    Proxy details area for Smartboard 11

    We have found a user manual for Smartboard 11 and after extensive searching through it, at the bottom of page 160 it descibes how to enter proxy settings and it is accessed using the set language menu. Link for guide is http://www.calu.edu/calufusion/files...otebook-11.pdf

    Hope this helps

    Sorry to dig up an old thread, but a quick question to those who have done the upgrade.

    Did you uninstall SMART Notebook 10.8 first (msiexec /x) and then install 11, or just run the 11 MSI (msiexec /i) to upgrade the machine?

    Thanks, Dave.

    i have found that the upgrade is iffy and doing a fresh install has better results.
    its a horrid piece of software....

    Totally agree with Shimmer, make sure the old version is completely uninstalled and start a fresh installation. We had 10.8 at our school and tried the upgrade and it was very flakey.

    +1 for Shimmer - You need to completely get rid of any old version of SMART before installing 11, otherwise things really go awry. There is also an old removal tool which I think will still work for you: http://downloads.smarttech.com/softw...d95Cleanup.exe

    Did they ever reply back to you about this? Since rolling out 11.1 my users have been complaining about this

    nope now word from them, i haven't tried the newer version as im sure they released a service packed version.

    we are using 11.xx on site but we gave the option of using 10 to those who cant stand the new version and the lag which the smart ink layer insists on generating

    I fixed the proxy auth box, as it was being generated from the activity builder. Simple add in to Internet explorer 127.0.0.1 to the list of addresses that are set NOT to use proxy, all done!!

    I had issues installing 11 from the downloaded files on the site but got given a CD which works flawlessly. No proxy issues, No ink issues and boot speed seems fine.
