    iTalc and importing public key problem

    I have iTalc installed successfully on a lab of computers running Windows XP. (installed last year). I'm attempting to install the client on 3 other machines. I copied the public key from the installation on the master computer onto a USB stick. When I attempt to import that key as part of the client install..the "NEXT" button does not become active..preventing me from completing the process.

    I notice that the key is simply called "key" on the master computer (and the other student computers), but that some directions refer to "italc_dsa_key.pub". I'm not sure if that makes a difference? I even tried renaming the key to that name..still no luck. Does the key need a special name? Does it need to reside in a specific directory on the usb stick?

    Any ideas for troubleshooting would be appreciated.

    TIA!

    Dave

    I had the same problem until I saved the key on to the server and then browsed to it - dunno why that would work - but it did

    Well I think I figured out the problem.

    I initially renamed the key to italc_dsa_key.pub

    On a lark, I tried iTalc_dsa_key.pub

    Capitalizing the "T" made all the difference. Now it works.
