    Abacus Evolve I-Planner Software Registry Edit

    For Abacus Evolve I-Planner Software, where the database stops connecting because you have changed the name of your computer (Abacus Evolve Interactive Planner Installation Guide, pages 26 to 27, Resolution3) - standalone install.

    Navigate to HKEY Local Machine\Software\Harcourt\Abacus Evolve IPlanner 3 and locate the DBServer registry key. This contains the computer name. Edit this so that the computer name is correct and close the editor. No computer restart necessary.

    The planner has gone online now. We are waiting for the upgrade details. They say they notified existing customers by email to school offices, but nothing came through to us that we can trace. The registry edit is just a fix to keep us going until we can give the online version a go.

    Did you check the post I'd referenced? I complained to our Pearson local consultant, as our maths co-ordinator swears he was assured the online version would be free of charge as we'd bought the CD product already.
