Here in lies the problem - Yes, I have the install point; yes, I got the msi off the cd; no, it doesn't work... It goes through the motions, and then fails, and it ends up with an error message on the target machine, which is about as helpful as a chocolate teapot (damn you m/s) I won't burden this post, as it'll take it off topic, but like I say, when I've tried my couple of ideas, I'll admit defeat. It may well not be until tomorrow though, I've got several science pracs to sort now - joy of joys. Thanks for your interest!

has to use the same USB port every time otherwise it has to be reinstalled (manually) then you have to go round each pc with the camera because the software doesn't hold the drivers...

I think i actually hear my hairs greying whenever someone from the Music department calls, but to be fair thats as much hardware as software. Is all music software written by monkeys, and all hardware created from recycled Biro's?

Oh god yeah, [ still on our pre prep PCs ] - had one thing which would only work if you used it as an Admin to start with, then logged on as a normal user and it would finally work......

Granada Colours, Database, Spreadsheet, Writer and Toolkit - bleeding terrible.
