    Re: problems so far

    Been having lots of fun with this! Finally got the software and test deployed and most of the time it connects to the server ok. We could do with a test pupil for the so that staff can run hrough the practice tests. (Getting a room full of students to attempt it before staff have even seen it would a recipe for disaster). Trouble is the crummy validation script on the 'Add user' page won't let me put one in without a valid UPN. Anyone know a way round this, or at least what format the UPN should be in?

    This might help if i can get the macros to run...

    I think you'll find that curry and beer will solve most problems

    Re: problems so far

    OK next problem. I've hit the same problem barry was having. The software installs but doesn't copy the dpsconfig.ini file over so the workstations are asking for the IP of our server. I think my best bet is going to be to do this manually. Where abouts is the file supposed to go?

    It sits in the DPS config file on the server. (Something like \\servername\APSinst\Admin Point System\DPS Config)

    Just edit it in notepad and fill in the details you require.

    Yes, but i think the install (we rolled it out with MSI packages) is supposed to drop this file onto the workstations. It isnt doing this, and even when i put the details into the workstation manually i cant find the file it stores them in.

    Re: problems so far

    this is the filepath to DPSConfig.ini on our server - D:\QCA testing\Admin Point System\DPS Config\
    are you at the point of doing the update which came out a couple of weeks ago? if you are, these instructions should be of help -

    "By default, the DPS will require configuration after the 10.1.2 software update has been installed. This can be avoided by replacing the DPSConfig.ini file from the zip file with the version that was created during your APS installation. More information on using DPSConfig.ini can be found in the Installation & Technical Guide."

    So just copy your original DPSConfig.ini file to another location, run the update and move the file back.

    If this doesn't help, post away, we'll get it sorted.

    I have done this but the workstations still require configuration. The file obviously isnt being installed with the rest of the software. So the question is, where (on the workstation) should it be. I can just copy it across manually if anyone could tell me where to put it.

    I've just run a search on the PCs we have it installed on and it doesn't find that file at all.

    Try deleting the MSI from the GPO - reboot the clients and put the MSI back in the GPO with the correct DPSConfig.ini file in it.

    DPSConfig.ini is on your server - C:\QCA testing\Admin Point System\DPS Config
