    Metro Electro 2

    Has anyone had probs with this software? It has been working fine but now I am getting the following message:

    UPDATE tblUsers SET Pass = 'Y2FyZA==' WHERE UserName = 'cnlhbmE='
    Description : Operation must use an updateable query.
    Source : Microsoft JET Database Engine
    Help Context :5003073
    Help File :
    Error Number : -2147467259

    I am reluctant to reinstall it as all the users will be lost. It has worked fine for about a year.
    Any ideas gratefully received!

    on server check to see if access database files on there in database folder..

    if all else fails..

    also make copy of two access database files and then reinstall then from backup files reimport everything back in etc etc

    Re: Metro Electro 2

    We have just tried to run Metro Electro on a W2K3 R2 based server under IIS and have been told by Harcourt (Hienneman) that it will not run under W2K3. It does not run with the HMC like the other MFL packages (Listos, Echo and Expo) so I don;t think it will be supported

    It might point to a security issue, try this or this.

    It will run on 2k3, but you have to pay them £75 (approx.) for the new version. We bought Metro 1 one year, 2 the next and 3 the next. 2 and 3 were 2k3 version, 1 was not - oh the fun!

    PS. Also watch out for the Flash Player 8 'issue'.

    Hi Andy

    Please can you elaborate on the "Flash Player Issue" I am getting problems with Metro running under non admin accounts i.e. staff and students running on ie8 and Flash 11.3.300.257

    Also has anyone got Listos working on any browser other than IE6?
