AQA Online Exams. Although that said It went so desasterously last time Science attempted to do them that I very much doubt the server will ever get switched on again.
I refuse to delete the VM because that'd mean rebuilding the bloody thing if someone decided to terrorise their students with them again. I've made the mistake of deleting the VM 3 times now - grrrr.

Yes - no difference my end - but I'm really not surprised..... I've just come to accept that it's crap, it will remain crap & crapness and mediator just happen to go together, just like Sophos and high CPU usage in fact.....

individual practice software seems to keep destroying pupil records atm as well 1 year at a time only way to make it so staff acn edit allowed tasks is to delete config file and recreate all students
old versions of digiblue
lego mindstorms wont deploy drivers to an sp3 pc (though a 2 simple msi exists that works usually) and the program 1/2 deploys via msi needs more files xcopying to its install dir
oh and sims for not updating when it should causing me to spend 1/2 a day running rund classrooms updating it manually when its supposed to be automatic and staff have approriate permissions to update it

That's a bit unfair. Map Detective is great.

Firstly the instructions for CC3: a blind monkey with no hands on a typewriter would have more chance of producing instructions that would even vaguely work and would probably be more receptive when you try to send them instructions that actually work. Secondly the actual process is ridiculous: click button A, click button B, enter enough licence details until you are dreaming about the establishment code, order number and subject keys in the dead of night while in a cold sweat, then do the secret dance of worship to the Sun God Ra while sacrificing a lamb from the slopes of the exactly right mountain from the Nepal. Then, just then, it might work (but actually more likely to give out the 'invalid licence' error!)
Yes I hate it.

Any software that requires admin privledges on the client and/or doesnt come with an installer package, also any software written by testing centres (not seen a good one yet).

most of the old stuff can be made better using the network installer cd then it just runs off a shared network drive no playbook garbage

Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0
Shows an invalid registration error on startup after using sysprep. Switched to installing via gpo after a clone using the included MSI which now means that although it works, it now asks all students to register the software each time, everytime, and regularly corrupts student's project files - they get a message about not being able to open Premiere Pro files in Elements which I believe is a load of cack.
Oh, and we occasionly get students where once they open the program, it closes itself back down again.
+1 for Edexcel Promissor - complete waste of time. Mine is installed on an old P4 tower, thing is I would like to stick it into a VM, but everytime I've ever attempted to do this, I get all sorts of error messages. I even tried following the original instructions, but it seems to be clinging on to the original PC.

I'm assuming you have already set up your administrative install point using the netcopy msi on the cds and entered your license key?
