    We've got a working CC3 MSI - took me several days on and off to get it to work, including much path setting in WinInstall LE and reg key fiddling.

    We couldn't get a CC4 package ither, so just manually installed it on over 50 machines. wasn't too bad to do.

    Not CC3/4 but I manually set it up on the workstations.

    Out of interest, I changed all of the screen res's to 1024x768 because that's what it asked for. Do you all operate at 1024x768 or have you run the exams at higher res's without problem?

    Previous tests were run at 1280, this time round we switched to 1024 with a setres script, made no difference as far as I can tell.

    Help with ESM server please!

    We have installed it on a clean XP SP3 laptop with all updates applied (Yes I know XP rather than Server but it is a low key deployment), and every time the laptop reboots it insists on performing some sort of configuration changes to the ESM MSI then comes up with a message saying the computer needs to be restarted for the changes to take effect!

    Tried countless reinstalls and repairs but no luck, any ideas?

    We have had to manually install it (we are on CC3 ) couldnt get the MSI to work.

    Spoke to Edexcel and they said use the MSI and it will work, spoke to RM and they don't deal with third party applications, or not the ones we ask them about.

    Thanks
