    New Service Pack for Smartboard 9.5

    Just checked today and I notice there is a new service pack for version 9.5 of Smartboard software.
    Thankfully, you do not have to download the whole software package if you have already installed 9.5, just download the new service pack2

    On older boards the original 9.5 software crashed.

    Can't see any mention of crashes in that thread.

    Re: New Service Pack for Smartboard 9.5

    In SimpleSi's first post on the thread:

    And it errored on exit 3 times and wanted to send error report.
    That's a crash in my book.

    But that was the installer program NOT the software itself.
    The errors SimpleSi seems to have encountered were probably due to trying to 'upgrade' from an earlier version instead of uninstalling the old version first.

    Re: New Service Pack for Smartboard 9.5

    Quite possible, I had alot of trouble trying to upgrade from an earlier version rather than uninstalling first.

    Only annoyance I have now is that we have a 210mb file of educational essentials for the board which not only takes forever to install, but visually appears to crash the machine while its doing it. It doesnt actually crash the machine, but does lock it up for a long period while it installs. (guy from smart provided us with it..got masses and masses of templates and lessons for different subjects in it)

    Re: New Service Pack for Smartboard 9.5

    For clarification, my crashes were in SMART notebook and were on upgraded installs..

    I've only put one school onto V9.5 (they got desktops to replace teacher laptops and are therefore virgin machines) - I'll check to see how they are getting on because just because they haven't complained doesn't mean it works

    Just tried the MSI here on a CC3 network with a virgin machine seems to install ok haven't tried it with one actually attached to a SMARTBoard yet (going to try it tomorrow) If that goes ok I'll allocate it over summer and the real test will come in September.
