Right so I deployed the msi and it workes I can see all of the resources but the search doesn't work if I try to search for a resource I get the error below.
JavaError: Unable to create directory \\server\e-science\data\longstring-00000-00000\content\index
With a server install do they need write access to certain directories?
EDIT: I've sorted it now, I ran a search on the server and it seemed to create the directory. Fingers crossed that it will work from now on.

I have had eScience running fine here for ages then a couple of days ago a teacher came to me to inform me that they have been unable to open resources for 'some time'. So basically, it just stopped working properly one day!

The key thing is to get v1.1 of Nelson Thornes (they'll send it to you for free) and do the unofficial server install you'll be fine (hopefully).

I had the Java issue when we first went from Java 1.5 to 1.6 (shows how long ago it was) and had to patch it. I've done a clean install of e-science from the same disk but with Java 1.6 update 17 installed (before installing e-science) and it works fine it's the most bizzar piece of software. As far as I know we have version 1 of e-science as it suffered the Java problem way back.
It seems to be working now so as I say fingers crossed.
We installed Physics, Chem and Bio via a package, which failed to find any of the videos/flash stuff...doc's worked fine...finally had to manually install just one of them, to get the others to work. Definitely to do with the registration of .dlls on the machine.
Well I thought we were in bussiness but there's one more issue. All of the content is available but the lesson planner doesn't work. If I login to the home page then click the Lesson Planner link I see the subjects in the left 'Schemes' pane but when I double click one nothing appears in the 'Lesson Groups' pane. This works on the old server.
Any ideas guys?
The lesson planner only works in V1.1. That was the reason we had to move away from the local installs and get it working properly on the server!
Get in touch with Nelson Thornes and they should provide this to you on a DVD.
