    8.1

    Installed and working really well thanks Nick - loving the whole school calendar tile thanks for including that in the release Staff have already commented on how useful it is....

    Dunno if you like to see how your system is being used - but have attached a screenshot 8.1-hap.jpg


    Still gutted there is no way to have these tiles set up on a version of HAP that will autologin - the amount of info they get at a glance is just ideal for their internet start page.

    If there is anyone who could amend this, I would be willing to pay? I don't need them to access anything other then the homepage - I dont care that they have to log in for room booking, because that is a good layer of security... I just want it to auto log them in, or ask once and remember so that they can get their live tiles?

    Give it a try, I have done some changes that should allow Windows Authentication. If you do just let me know what it does

    Same as before it appears. error 500 on loading scripts, lots of Internal error pop ups as it tries to load tile elements.

    I have a local DNS entry for the external SSL address - when I enter it that way I get a pop up asking for details (then same errors)

    If I go via the local address, obviously I get an SSL error and then I get the pop ups, but it does log me in automatically.

    Simple solution to that I guess - install HAP Internal on another server - but don't want to do that until I can sort the erro 500 codes - However if I did - would it then be difficult/impossible to point the booking system live tile to check the booking system on the other instance?

    It doesn't seem to like it. The Windows Credentials don't get passed correctly. Sorry about that, it still requires Forms based authentication.

    You can use by desktop gadget for the desktops

    I have got that working on my test PC, struggling elsewhere tbh. Also because the school calendar is staff only, its not easy to define whose computer may be a teachers and whose isnt.

    Such a shame tbh... Is there anything we could do to get it to remember people once they have logged in?

    Use folder/file permissions to deny students from running the application

    Good point. Still got to investigate why it is not working on some machines...

    Any ideas of the cookie for login? Could we just set it not to expire?

    Major security risk on that one. I would not advise it. Plus the hapToken (the 2nd of 2 cookies) is hard coded for session only use

    I just figured on an internal system, with no myfiles linked into it/booking system etc? I get it on the live external system being an issue.

    Never mind tho ... ! Ive been looking at exchange 2010 web parts to see if I can achieve something similar.

    This looks brilliant. Where does it get the info for the school calendar from?

    We have a calendar account on exchange 2010. 8.1 allows you to map a calendar tile to an account, see the docs included

    Can anyone help

    I currently use HAP version 6 I think on my existing server. I am now setting up the new version 8.1 on the samer server under a new name. I am having a few issues. Followed the video, set the permissions e.t.c. when i go to IIS to change the authentication settings i get the error:
    there was a error while performing this oepration
    filename \\?\c:\inetpub\wwwroot\hap\web.config
    line number 248
    section end points cannot be read becuase it is missing a declaration

    any ideas?
