    How did it break?

    It all looks very forgotten - but these were 2004 releases mind; will have a dig in my archives to see if I can locate anything relevant.

    Closest I can find is the companion website: Exploring Science QCA - Assessment Materials

    Have dug up some files off the old support server: for the Assessment CDROM - UNC support
    http://centraal.uk.knowledgebox.com/..._UNC_patch.zip
    http://centraal.uk.knowledgebox.com/..._UNC_patch.zip
    http://centraal.uk.knowledgebox.com/..._UNC_patch.zip

    These are the only patches I could locate - and to be fair you're pretty much on your own with these...
    I guess you just need to search for and replace the files provided in the zip.

    Other than pcrocket's links above for the ActiveBook titles the only other relevant file I could find was: http://centraal.uk.knowledgebox.com/...SOR9AB_MSI.zip
    I guess this is to help with rolling out the patch files.

    Unfortunately since my day, the support articles associated with these fixes have been lost/taken down...

    Hi, thanks for getting back to me, it is the active book we are trying to use. It was actually our technician who first found the problem, we have 7,8 and 9 installed, all came up with error about library not registered. He put them into xp sp3 compatibility mode which made 7 and 8 work, but when he did it with 9 files started to go missing.

    The patch seems to have stopped it deleteing files although it now just locks up on a white screen. I have copied the wrapper.exe from exploring science 8 into the 9 folder and set it to windows 2000 compatibility mode and it works. You get the es8 splash screen but afterwards its all es9.

    Does anyone know the default setup PW for the old Exploring Science?
