    updateing junior librarian 3

    done a search and cant find owt

    is it possiblr to update the program without visiting every workstation? i have an msi for v 3.2.2.19 but cant seem to find one for this version (and i cant remember where the other came from) but the main pc its used on has been updated to 3.2.2.25 and now no other pc in school can use it they just get an upgrade message. Tried just copying the dir off this pc to another dosent seem to work

    Is it not possible to create your own MSI from what you do have and then roll this out?

    Not answering the original question but we now have the online version and that has cut down my involvement - heaps. Money well spent!

    the schools i support with the online version think its awful takes forever to do owt then randomly decides nbot to work properly (and the softgware needed to make the barcode reader work cant be msid out)

    sorted it in the end on the cd i downloaded somewhere was an exe file that created an msi in temp when run. I got to the point of just randomly running exes till i found the msi then deployed it (though after a false start where i called the dir 3.3.2.25 (or similar) and found it wouldnt deploy removed the dots and it worked fine). Just aonther one of those days i guess lol

    Don't suppose anyone happens to know how to import the web links into Eclipse2?

    Not sure on that one but have just had to replace computer that Junior Librarian 3 runs on due to dead hard drive and cannot re-install backup due to version incompatability. The software version I have is 3.2.2.16 and the backup was made from version 3.2.2.25. Due to financial restrictions, we do not have support from Microlib and my predecessor did not keep copies of updates. Does anyone out there have a copy of the update to 3.2.2.25 they could send me a copy of. I'm aware that this may be in breach of edugeek protocol and understand if no one is willing or able to help

    Many thanks anyway

    If you talk nicely to them they may supply you with the update file? I've got the email address of a guy at MLS who is quite helpful. I can send you that if you like? I mean it's not as if you're wanting a free updgrade, you had the product, and just want to be able to import your database again.

    I've also sent you a PM.

    Sorry to report that last year, when I had the exact same situation, I had to pay for the new version. Yes even though I had it already albeit on a dead drive. MLS argued that the software could not be transferred to another computer, new hard drive being construed as a new computer. Wasn't best pleased and neither was the Bursar.

    I'd have them up in court for trying that on me > Especially when you need a brand new PC to run the .Shoddy version

    I don't think they do? You have to enter your license code don't you?

    Have also found that unless you renew the HelpDesk (or whatever it's called) licence, they are not very helpful at all. Stands to reason actually, but when for year after year you don't need it, comes as a very expensive "insurance". Manglement decreed unnecessary expenditure - usual tale - they had to pay in the end. Possibility of not using it at all didn't occur to them.

    Can't remember if the licence key is necessary when updating, sorry.
