    Dance 2005 for schools on a RM CC3 network

    Hi everyone!

    I am a Technician at Sir James Smith's Community school, Cornwall.

    I know a lot of people here have used Dance 2005 for Schools (network version) and some say they have theirs working.

    From previous posts here it seems people have got it working by putting it on a share.

    We use a RM CC3 environment, we had vanilla PC's with music software on because RM permissions issues.

    We now have needed to get these PC's on the CC3 evironment and we have had a number of problems with creating a package for "Dance 2005 for schools"

    This lead me to create a share on the network creating the dance 2005 software, I can run it as an admin but not as a student.

    If anybody has got this to run successfully please reply to this post (especially if you are running a RM CC3 environment)

    @MNHughes:
    You will have to create file and path rules to allow the students to run it.
    You will find all this in the configuration settings in the MMC under software restriction settings.

    Install locally on the machines, was the only way we could get it to work, we even had an EJAY person come out to try but he failed. Install locally, have a copy installed on the server to somewhere that the children can execute programs and have a re-direct available just incase the local one doesnt work.

    Sorry guys, I should of mentioned that I have tried a path rule for this application but it would still not allow me to run the program, even with workstation security turned off.

    I got it to work once by:

    1. Creating a copy of the normal user type for students.

    2. Modified the new user type to make the user exempt from software restrictions.

    3. Logged on as the user and run the program.

    I then spoke with RM again about this but it had them stumped.

    I have tried this in the past and had problems but I will give it a go.

    Currently I am trying suggestions from this post here:

    Network Management: Dance Ejay Network Edition

    If I have any success I will (if i remember) post back here so if anyone else comes by this they will hopefully find a solution.

    Hate to say this but I just installed the app and resources onto the P: drive, provided a shortcut in appropriate program sets and it has worked well ever since.
    I haven't come across any part of the program that doesn't work, yet.

    from RM web site

    The site licence only comes with a licence confirmation.
    You are required to purchase a single user licence to get a copy of the software.

    Important Notice: We do not recommend the installation of this software onto a Community Connect 3 network

    RM.com Shop: Dance eJay for Schools

    class!

    Brilliant, if you have a spare moment could you e-mail me these details:

    When you say installed did you run the installer a specify the P:\ drive

    or

    Copy the contents of the CD to the P:\ drive

    What are the permissions of the share you have installed Dance on?

    Did you need to do anything with ACL Detective or create a package to allow the users the correct access?

    Many many thanks,

    Martin
