    What was the problem? I had it installed on a suite for a while and no-one reported any problems (which doesn't mean there weren't any!).

    There should be a network install for this. If you have version 3.01 (i think..) you should be able to install it and point it to a network share for all the data. You do need to set this on each machine but if you're imaging them then it should be an issue.
    If you don't have a network install then give them a ring and they'll send you a updated version on cd.
    hope that helps

    I have done the network install that came with the version 3 cameras, works in a fashion, but it forgets where the network drive for the share is each time. Tried to find out where it stores this value to no avail, even setting it and then locking the profile. Asked the suppliers (TAG I think it was) and they said it was a bug but they hope to modify the software as they have the source code now. Anyone else come across this?

    I used the network install option and i created a vbs script

    Code:
    Dim OShell
    dim fso : set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    dim wshShell :  Set wshShell = Createobject("WScript.Shell")
    
    'digital blue network drive location
    wshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Digital Blue\Digital Movie Creator 3.1\UserStock" , "P:\Digital Blue\Digital Movie Creator 3\user files" , "REG_SZ"
    P drive is a shared drive that all users have access to, the digital blue folder is hidden.
    This adds the line above into the network configuration tab when you run the digital blue setup wizard.

    to create the network install i first created the msi by creating an admin install from the setup exe and then creating and mst which changed the property NETWORK_INSTALL to YES, this is found in the Property table.

    There may of been a way to add the shared folder into the msi itself but i could never find it.

    Sorry didnt put enough detail in yesterday
    Its version 2.0 havent come accross any disks for ver 3 but will keep an eye out,

    When you run as a normal user i.e a student, you get the msg along the lines "you need administrator permisions to run digital blue....." its not the normal lack of access msg.
    adding the user to local admins fixes the problems but Im not happy about doing that

    not at school today so can not give the exact error msg

    HI

    I have just had the same problem with digital blue movie maker 3.

    I have had to give students and staff modify permissions on the programs folder that the program is installed in with group policy.

    for version two

    for digital blue version two i give all users 'special permissions' to the 'digital blue' folder in program files, it works fine here, but i need to test it more with a fresh install of XP sp3

    Version 2 is awful software and not worth you spending your time on. Pick up another camera (89) and use version 3.

    You can point the Network install to a share and it will create a folder for each user within it. Not fantastic, but a big step up from previous incarnations.

    Version 3 is also network licensed, version2 is not!

    Version 3 has certified PNP drivers for all versions of the cameras, version 2 does not if i remember correctly

    I had a similar nightmare with V2, in the end i had to install it on the staff laptops, but once i found out that the newer Digital Blue had a V3 software which i could deploy i shot that out, and with the vbs script i wrote, users can log on any pc and connect the camera and docking station up, and they will be able to save there videos and access them from any pc as they are all on a shared drive.
