    Successmaker

    Does anybody have the problem in successmaker, where the majority of students logging in get as far as requesting a course and the program then just sits and waits and goes nowhere. If Admin logs onto the machine and then goes into SM as a student, the problem doesn't occur. Any ideas as to what permissions etc. we may be missing :?

    Re: Successmaker

    Is your successmaker running as part of the whole school network, or on a seperate system?

    Ours is on a seperate system, and will occasionally have problems if it loses connection to the 'server' and thus can't find the child's records.

    Ours is running as part of the network and we do not have these problems you mention. Have you contacted RM about it?

    In answer to 'sqdge', it is part of the whole school network.
    It answer to Andrew, RM won't talk to us as we don't have a service contract. The price of their service contract would buy alternative software(if we knew of any).
    Whether there is a problem with the particular room we are using and there is a certain external piece of software that needs to be added to these machines that we don't know about?

    Re: Successmaker

    Have you always had this problem, or is it recent? If it's recent, what's changed?
    Anything in the event log on the server or the machine?

    Re: Successmaker

    Its to do with the permisons on the c:drive. I guess the kids have no write access to the c:drive at all?

    You need to vreat a couple of GPO exceptions to allow the kids to write to certain folders of the "c:drive

    The GPO settings are set a Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Security Settings>File System

    I am not sure if this is a correct way to do as we are a none RM network as well but it got it working four us and you described the problem as exactly as we had it.
    We have domain/everyone modify to the folllowing folders.


    %systemdrive%/history
    %systemdrive%/localcai
    %systemdrive%/resultsmanager
    %systemdrive%/student
    %systemdrive%/teacher

    Re: Successmaker

    Thanks all. I've checked the permissions for the specific c: drive folders' permissions and they all appear OK. I'm very confused!
