    Problems with netop

    we seem to be having problems with net op we have 3 classrooms all with under 30 machines and have netop installed, but the problem is when the teacher loads up the teacher profile, they havent got the students loaded as if they have not logged on when they have!
    so i have to keep re announcing class in order for them to appear

    any ideas

    We had a similar problem whereby the teacher's pc kept going through the install again when the teacher logged on and ran the program. The teacher thought this was normal and so didn't say anything. It was only when they had a cover teacher that we were told. It turned out it was permissions that needed sorting.

    We also don't tell the teachers the maintenance password as they've got a habit of going in and mucking up the settings.

    Well it really depends on how you have netop running. We have quite an old version - [ just updated it over half term ] - and the classes are dependent on their profile. As I have local profiles then I have to make sure they where they logon the relevant application data is copied over - hence I have this script to launch netop teacher:

    [ excuse the length, its quite an old script which I shall re-write at some point if I am still around..... ]

    Code:
    ; AutoIt Version:  	3
    ; Language:        	English
    ; Platform:        	WinXP
    ; Author:          	Matt 
    ; Script Function: 	Copies over Net Op Teacher Class Files + checks to see what class is being activated
    ;                   and only installs the relevant class details.
