    Can't even run the installer to do a fresh install as it won't allow it.
    We had this problem here this morning also with full administrator rights to the workstations.

    I downloaded the latest Administrator client from the Catglobal website and rolled that out to the workstations over the top of the old client - was a bit of a pain with all the kids sitting waiting to start the tests!

    May I ask how you deployed it? Edexcel told me I would have to install it manually to each PC, if I wanted a method of deployment I would need to generate my own MSI for it. Since it started off as 'we only need it on 4 or 5 PC's' I didn't bother MSI'ing it to start with, it has since grown in blobs of 2-3 up to approx 110 PCs .

    Created and rolled out an MSI as you have said. It includes the name and location of the ECM server so once it is installed on the machines its ready to go.

    after the administrator server downloads the client, you need to run the update manually, it will not launch after you download the client, the update will be located in the "updates" folder within your ESM shared folder.

    Thought we were done for these this year but we will be doing some on results day maybe. So server install goes ok then I need a manual update on each machine? Hmm think I will rebuild the machines and install fresh just to be on the safe side.

    Hi,

    I know its an old thread but.....

    I repacked the administrator program with WinstallLE and it works okay, but I have to login as administrator once and run it otherwise it complains that it can't create a directory. I have given the kiddies full rights the programs directory. Any one come across this?

    conrad

    ps.

    if anyone wants the MSI pm me. (hopefully with the directory thingy fixed
