    I launch the exambase server - icon put on the systray, but when I move the cursor over the icon, the icon disappears. I can't therefore download exams, candidates or schedule exams. So far the support has not been able to help. I have rebooted the server that the software is installed on. I can't see any messages in the logs that would cause this. Any one any ideas, other than reinstalling.
    The only issue I have found is that hitting "print" to get the codes candidates need to log on with produces...nothing! Anyway, that aside, I think these are far better than KS3 tests (which I am still running this year). But the jury is out. I have 80 students on Friday taking the ALAN tests- so time will tell :cry:

    Download the Print Utility, then it will work.

    I found the printing utility last week and meant to post about it for anyone that hadn't found it.

    The main server program doesn't print to network printers but the standalone utility does and this prints out your candidate information slips, 2 to an A4 page.

    Re: ALAN Exambase testing

    I've solved this now with the help of BTL. Only needed to delete a couple of XML files and everything now works.
    I must say that I have never had a problem getting through to the support.
    The set up was very straight forward and so far we are very happy with the exams certainly a huge improvement on the ICT KS3 tests.

    ALAN is so much smoother than QCA ICT KS3 software.

    Thanks for the info about Print utility - makes the software complete - ExamBase ftw!
