    Bromcom and Windows 7

    Hi All
    Is anyone out there using Bromcom's Winfolder with Windows 7?

    At the moment if you run winfolder on windows 7 you cannot turn the projector mode off, this causes us major problems because it means that any windows 7 users cannot access any student data or use the behaviour system. I have logged this with Bromcom and is with their development team - I was hoping if others have the same problem or are planning to move to Windows 7 in the near future we might be able to lean on them a little together to encourage them to get a move on.

    Any thoughts or ideas welcome.

    Do you know why it doesn't work?

    As a workaround, if the projector supports it, you could ask the teachers to freeze the screen. I know they will scream, but it's better than not being able to get on with their jobs.

    Or switch to extended screen but again that's a pain.

    Hi Andy,
    The team are working on this issue at the moment. I should have more news for you within 48 hours.
    Expect something in your mail box before then with details of other option.

    Yes, we noticed the same issue here when testing Winfolder on Windows 7 x64. The pin input box of the Projector mode seems to only allow 3 digits not 4.

    This issue is fixed in the March release due on the 18th.
    I have managed to get early access to the version of winfolder included in this release and can arrange for it to be installed.
    Either of you can contact me off list if you would like to take advantage of the early access.

    Regards
    John

    Windows 7

    John do you know if this is the same version that was installed on our system a few weeks ago?

    If it is - Teak you may want to wait until your next break as it brought down our Bromcom system completely and took a day to roll back! We are quite a large School so they were not very popular while all our registers were manually being input by support staff.

    No Andy, this won't have been applied to your system before now.
    It's not related to the issue you experienced with the registers a few weeks back.

    Regards
    John

    It's a pity you won't fix eSchool not working in IE 8 properly (It's just a broken css) or letter designer/generator UAC issues.

    Still, we get to pay plenty of "Software maintenance" on software that isn't maintained. More than happy to sell us the new version of course!
